Tech Day is an informational/advocacy event being held in Springfield 
on April 21st with the support of the Illinois Community Technology 
Consortium and CTCnet Chicago.  The purpose of the day is to reinforce 
the relevance and value of community technology centers and community 
technology programs to general statewide policy initiatives.  We're 
inviting representatives from community technology centers from across 
the state to come and share their experiences with legislators and each 
other, and we'd be pleased if you or someone from your organization 
could attend - program participants are also welcome!  People will 
start gathering for donuts and informal discussion between 10 and 11am 
in room M1 in the Stratton Building (the bug ugly building just west of 
the Capital).  At around 11am there will be a forum featuring speakers 
from the state legislature, the Lt. Governor's office, and hopefully 
someone from the Governor's office as well.  The afternoon is being 
left more open for those attendees who wish to make appointments to 
speak with elected representatives from their districts, but I'm also 
hoping to organize a policy discussion/planning session to talk about 
things like the Illinois Century Network, the Eliminate the Digital 
Divide Fund, and broadband Internet access.  Please let me know if you 
can make it!
