Hey everyone,

Today OpenNorth announced the first series of international and Canadian
open data leaders who will be speaking at the Canadian Open Data Summit in
Ottawa on May 25.

Scroll down on the home page: http://opendatasummit.ca/en/

There's plenty more where that came from.

We need the help of all civicaccess list subscribers. Here's what you can

1. Buy your ticket now. If you haven't taken advantage of early-bird
registration ticket prices, you have until March 13 to do so. Tickets for
nonprofits and individuals are currently only $75, and those for government
and corporations are $125. If you intend to come, we encourage you to
purchase yout ticket today (here

2. Spread the word. Open data has is a growing community, as you know. If
you support open data, we urge you to tell your colleagues, friends, and
fellow open data supporters in your community about the Canadian Open Data
Summit. We need a diverse audience to tackle the challenges that the
Canadian open data communities faces. The more often someone hears about
the event, the better. And if it comes from someone they know, even better.
Please spread the word via your local mailing lists, meetup pages, on your
personal or organisation's blog, etc.

3. Follow-us on Twitter (@opennorth). We're intensifying our promotion
efforts. Expect blog posts from our team and some of our partners
describing why this event matters. Expect more announcements like today's.
The speakers list is top notch. We'll also be announcing travel grants for
students and Canadian open data leaders thanks to generous support of the
McConnell Foundation and Community Foundations Canada.

4. Propose a Canadian Open Data Award winner. Details can be found here
<http://opendatasummit.ca/awards/>. Who deserves this prize? This is an
opportunity to elevate the profile of that tireless champion in your city,
a new start-up or a local open data project striving to make your community
better. Winning the award is obviously great, being nominated also matters.

5. We need more sponsors. Surprise, surprise. We're actively pursuing many
leads. If you know an organisation or an institution that might be
interested in sponsoring this year's Canadian Open Data Summit, contact me
at: jeannoe at opennorth.ca.

May 25 kicks off an unprecedented and exciting week of open data events and
meetings in Ottawa.

The International Open Data Conference is happening on May 28-29. There
will be an international open data unconference on May 26. And other events
on May 27. Let's make sure that the Canadian open data community shows up
on May 25. The eyes of the international open data community converging in
Ottawa will be looking.

Please be in touch if you have any questions, comments, suggestions.

Thank you,



*Jean-No? Landry*
