Can Facebook, Twitter, Google+ etc. be used to find funding for a project, or project leads?
Can architects/ designers/ interior designers use Facebook, Twitter, Google+, etc. to find work or new project opportunities? What about funding for projects, or even winning an online contest? How is social technology increasingly paving the way for co-working?

I've shared some of this information with some of you once during the 2011 AIA National Convention in New Orleans.

I'll share it again, and even more. I'm collaborating with the Chicago Women in Architecture (CWA), AIA Chicago, and Porcelanosa to bring this presentation (selected as one of AIA Virtual Convention's "Best of San Francisco, Miami and New Orleans") to Chicago.

Register today for this event happening on March 22nd. Limited to 50 participants, this event isn’t for people looking to instantly increase friends/followers/likes and other forms of social media numbers game that don't result in a fully-engaged audience. If you’re interested to know how to organically increase and strengthen online professional relationships that lead to business growth, this event is for you.

(Due to popular demand, the participant limit is increased. Register by March 16th to save your space.)
