edwebpros.jpg Educational web managers are often lonely, misunderstood geeks who are crucial members of the communications staff but get unfairly lumped in with IT. These dedicated souls must synthesize content for a variety of audiences (faculty, administration, parents, alumni, students) while also single-handedly updating calendars, uploading forms, and managing schedules.A better use case for web content management does not exist. The fact that your educational web managers need a break today is why you shan't miss the first and only national conference for K-12 education web professionals. On Monday, April 7, Education Web Professionals presents its national conference in Rockville, MD. Among a strong lineup of presenters and breakout sessions, the conference boasts: * A keynote from Tony Byrne, founder of CMS Watch and one of the nation's leading experts on content management and web publishing systems * Panel discussions with Q and A on Web 2.0, CMS, and Site Redesign and Usability * Networking with K-12 school system web manager colleagues from small and large systems. The web is a fast-moving medium, and web managers are often isolated with not nearly enough resources to keep up. Intent on being innovative, creative, and mindful to progress; it's not necessary to reinvent the wheel when you can seize the opportunity to hear how colleagues are solving similar problems while learning about new solutions from our partners in the industry. If you're one of the people who make your school system or school web site work -- web communications and technology professionals employed in public K-12 school systems, in private schools, and in other educational organizations -- don't miss your chance to attend.
