All trainings aim to include interested organizers of all skill  levels. There is no skill prerequisite! We will be discussing  rationale and applicability of digital tools for the USSF.

Meet with the Informations and Communication Technology working group  members to learn more advanced technology skills like website design  and development with Drupal and contact management software CiviCRM.

The Information Communications Technology working group is organizing  a workshop to help facilitate effective use of the tools for  organizing the USSF 2009. Anyone is welcome to attend! Please visit  ict.ussf2010.org for more information.
