New microsite and mobile app offer attendees a digital conference experience
WASHINGTON—The Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, Incorporated (CBCF) today announced the launch of its new microsite and mobile app for the 45th Annual Legislative Conference, September 16 – 20, at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C. The microsite is live at www.cbcfinc.org/alc. Beginning August 18, the mobile app, called CBCF ALC, will be available in Google Play and the Apple App Store.
The digital resources offered during this year’s conference are part of the CBCF’s commitment to facilitate public policy exploration and to reduce its carbon footprint, a chief goal of the foundation’s environmental sustainability initiative.
“The CBCF ALC mobile app and microsite are designed to make the conference a more engaging experience for millennials and our tech savvy visitors,” said A. Shuanise Washington, president and chief executive officer of the CBCF. “Attendees will get more out of the ALC with on-the-go conference information and improved interaction, while using less paper.”
Through these platforms, users can register for the conference, purchase tickets to signature events, and get up-to-the-minute information about forums, speakers, hotels, and transportation from virtually any device. Additional features include a customizable conference schedule, interactive maps and access to special conference discounts. Users can also use social media via the app to post about their conference experience.
To download the CBCF ALC mobile app, visit Android, Google Play or Apple stores on August 18.
The ALC is the leading policy conference on issues impacting African Americans and the global black community. The ALC features more than 70 public policy forums on health, education, economic empowerment, the environment, civic engagement, and the Exhibit Showcase. Signature events include the National Town Hall, Celebration of Leadership in Fine Arts, Gospel Extravaganza, Black Party, Prayer Breakfast, and the culminating event, the Phoenix Awards Dinner.
