Event Management and Online Event Registration

House parties are wonderful ways to share your most valued ideas with family, friends, coworkers and neighbors. But whether your event is at home, at a community group, or a standalone seminar, we have a couple helpful, sustainable tools for you to consider.

Wifi for Meeting Spots

As you build your network, active SoCal mover-shakers find community meeting spots essential -- and we meet at widely dispersed public spots -- restaurants, libraries, even oil change shops to make the most of every moment of networking. You can find local Wifi hotspots at this directories. If you need to have access to the Web for your presentation or to discuss what's available about just about anything... bring your laptop, your palmtop...or your cell phone and tap into WIFI hotspots. Here are a couple directories:



As you plan your event, you might find an event promotion tool helpful. is near and dear to our hearts... it was created by the Allen family...father, son and ... mother (me)! We created this robust service because we believe in the motto, "Building communities one event at a time". All three of us have been heavily involved in small groups that need promotion and information services, and we found that the Internet-based services such as Evite just didn't do the job for us.

With that said, I hope you'll take a look at the service -- we offer a free basic service, and charges reasonable fees for the more advanced features such as taking paid registrations for meetings.

By using SureToMeet, you're able to manage your email lists, send private or public meeting email notices, have public notices highly visible in search engines, take reservations, and even accept PayPal or credit card reservations. is the Speakers Bureau of EcoIQ. EcoIQ works to expand the audience for the valuable ideas and good work of speakers, authors, journalists, researchers, photographers, videographers, documentary producers, publishers, web site sponsors, and event planners who focus on the transition to a more sustainable future. EcoIQ operates to promote speakers for conferences, meetings, training programs, and community, business, and university speaker series.

As you consider which speaker or speakers may best meet your needs, you may want to keep topics clearly focused on your mission and theme.

While large events and policy meetings might call for highly visible speakers, don't forget the speakers closest to you. Sometimes local field workers and advocates have a better handle on your theme than a highly visible or nationally known speaker.

One sustainable concept to keep in mind is "think global, act local." By encouraging the development of speaking skills among your own community, you empower yourselves. There is nothing like being engaged to speak to make a person sharpen their facts, their ideas, and engage their network.

Regional and Local Networking Opportunities

Getting together at a favorite watering hole is a tradition we can learn to appreciate from the wild critters in our natural world. Humans, too, love to get together informally and exchange greetings, tips, and build friendships.

Green Drinks

The informal "Green Drinks" events are held in Silverlake and Culver City as a way for people in the environmental field to meet and greet. Get the details at the GreenDrinks website.
