Here’s a great model for a civic engagement event: An evening of training in online social tools for civic engagement, followed by a 2-day civic summit, followed by a professional conference (in this case, the National Assn of Secretaries of State).
It continues through Friday, so you can observe or participate or save as an idea for future reference.
