Advance: Join experienced community leaders and organizers to discuss, debate and explore the many avenues of building strong community in an open unconference setting.
Build: Learn and build on the experience of others well versed in the art of building strong community, and apply these concepts to your own community.
Connect: Meet, greet and build connections with a raft of community leaders, managers and organizers.
Logistics: Free parking is available at DeVry University. If you prefer to take public transit, the Daly City BART station is less than a block from our location. Coffee will be provided in the morning and the afternoon during the unconference. See the CLS West web site and follow our twitter feed for updates on this event.
Lunch: An optional catered lunch is also being arranged. Lunch will either be free or require a nominal fee ($10 or less) to subsidize the cost depending on the level of corporate sponsorship secured. For whatever reason, you can opt-out of the catered lunch and make your own plans.

When & Where
We just increased the available FREE ticket pool by 25 more tickets. Once these tickets are gone though, we will need to start charging any additional late registrants $20 per person. We hate to do that, but, our current financial sponsorship can only support a total registration of 150 people. If you have any sponsorship leads, please send them our way at:
sponsorship [at] clswest [dot] us
One addtional Silver Sponsor ($500) would cover the cost for an additional 25 FREE tickets.
Good news! We have the funding secured now to open up an additional 25 FREE tickets for the unconference.
