Digital Dames, Inc. is proud to present the 6th Social Media Dames UNconference on August 1, 2017 in Fishers, Indiana.

You will find neither a keynote speaker nor breakout sessions at an UNconference, just 70 powerful women in one room sharing their social media skills and making professional local digital connections.

The ability to communicate digitally is a vital component in 21st Century careers, ranging from Mommy Bloggers to Chief Digital Officers for Fortune 500 companies.

The fast-paced UNconference format ensures the women in the room learn these skills in an environment that is effective and entertaining. “Edutainment” as Erin Albert refers to it.

Among the 70 women in the room, you will find 18 #SMDames17 #Strong#Storytellers — each will share a five minute Social Media story, or a bit of wisdom, to help everyone in the room learn new digital skills.

Just months after attracting a half-million-dollar prize, Wabash’s revitalized downtown is preparing to host Indiana’s annual gathering of preservationists, giving history buffs and members of the general public a glimpse behind the scenes of the city’s ongoing revitalization.

Drawn to the city by the award-winning downtown renewal, the April 25-28, 2017 “Preserving Historic Places” state preservation conference will include tours and workshops that showcase historic downtown Wabash buildings—some restored and some in process—including the restored Charley Creek Inn and commercial buildings repurposed as loft apartments.

State and national experts will lead educational sessions during the four days, and conference meals will be served in interesting historic locations, including one dinner held on a covered bridge in the nearby town of Roann.

The public is invited to attend the conference. An early bird registration discount applies to registrations received by March 10, 2017.

Known as the first electrically lit city in the world, Wabash in 2016 won by popular vote the $500,000 top prize in the national Small Business Revolution contest, created to shine a spotlight on the vital impact that small businesses have on our economy, our communities and our daily lives.

A related documentary series featured Robert Herjavec of Shark Tank helping transform six businesses in Wabash. Watch the videos at http://smallbusinessrevolution.org/main-street/season-one/.

One of two conference keynote speakers is Cameron Potts of Deluxe Corp., which sponsored the Small Business Revolution to showcase 100 small businesses as part of its 100th anniversary celebration.

The second conference keynoter is engineer and city planner Charles Marohn, founder of Strong Towns, a nonprofit that advocates for a model of development that allows cities, towns and neighborhoods to grow financially strong and resilient. The author of Thoughts on Building Strong Towns and A World Class Transportation System, Marohn hosts the popular Strong Towns podcast and is active on social media (see @StrongTowns on Twitter).
