Innotech and Social Media Awards

I just wanted to remind everyone that Innotech Oregon is in two weeks! I will be moderating a panel in the eMarketing Summit on the topic of Companies and Communities: Participating Without Being Sleazy on Thursday, April 23rd at 10:00 AM in Portland Ballroom 256. I’ll be joined on the panel by Kelly Feller, Social Media Strategist at Intel; Jake Kuramoto, Product Strategy Director at Oracle; and Dan Divens, Website and Community Manager at Tripwire.

Keep in mind that you have to register for the eMarketing Summit, since it is not part of the general conference fee. Other presenters in the eMarketing summit include: Rahaf Harfoush, New Media Strategist, Member of Obama’s Social Media Team; Carrie Bugbee, Kent Lewis, Ben Lloyd, and more. Speakers in other tracks include Jason Grigsby, Deborah Bryant, Brian Jamison, James Keller, Raven Zachary and many more.

Don’t forget about the  SoMe Awards: Your Social Media Awards brought to you by the Social Media Club of Portland, SEMpdx, the Software Association of Oregon (SAO), and InnoTech.

According to the SoMe website,

The Portland chapter of Social Media Club, SEMpdx and Software Association of Oregon are pleased to announce the first annual SoMē Awards to recognize outstanding Social Media projects and the people who created them.

Awards will be given in 7 categories based on factors such as originality, effectiveness and creativity. At least one member of the team who created the project must reside in Oregon or Southwest Washington to be eligible.

Award submissions must be received no later than 11:59 pm on Saturday, April 11, 2009 to be considered. The awards ceremony will take place on Thursday, April 23, following the eMarketing Summit & InnoTech conference.

It’s not too late! You have until this Saturday (4/11) to nominate your favorite social media project.

I hope to see you at Innotech.
