Assyrian Community Networking Conference IV
Organized by: Nineveh On Line

Saturday, May 23, 1998
1:00 pm PST
Double-Tree Hotel, Center Plaza, Modesto, CA

Objectives of the Conference

  • To improve our understanding of the social, economic, technical, and political issues which characterize the challenges and potential for Assyrian community networking. To examine types of Assyrian networking, and to study future projects.
  • To continue consideration of a Committee to act (or react) in timely fashion to issues of Assyrian concern as they may arise.
  • To assess the financial needs for community projects, and to consider their source of funding.

Community activists, regardless of their professional background, and including students, are invited to discuss community networking issues in context of the information superhighway and Assyrian issues in general. The Conference seeks emphasis on how to establish a networking infrastructure among the Assyrian communities across the country, and on how the information superhighway can be utilized as a means for education, cultural and political activities.
