Digital Akron is the last Thursday of every month from 4:00-5:30. You aren't going to want to miss a single one.

Here's the rundown of upcoming Digital Akron events along with their corresponding holiday. (Because going to Digital Akron is like a holiday all by itself.)

February 28, 2012 –  Tomorrow, people in Wales and of Welsh origin celebrate St. David's Day. Not much is known about him.  It is believed that he lived to be 100 years old. He was supposed to have been very gentle and physically strong and tall despite eating a frugal diet.

This reminds me of search engine optimization. SEO is not a quick fix. It's a slow and steady wins the race kind of strategy, like St. David.

Learn from the experts on what are the most effective search engine optimization strategies are today.

March 28, 2013 – It's Maundy Thursday, the day before Good Friday. It leaves us to ask, What would Jesus do with social media? We'll talk about how we can use social media in our businesses for a higher calling than just selling stuff. Doing well by doing good. This would be a good Digital Akron for non-profits.

Hey non-profits! Click here to request to speak at this Digital Akron event. We'd love to hear your story of how you are using social media to spread the word of your cause.

April 25, 2013 – Tomorrow is Arbor Day. That means only one thing: We should get Davey Tree to come lead the talk at this Digital Akron. They are doing awesome things online. What do you say, Davey Tree?

Davey Tree, peeps… want to speak? Click here to request to speak at this Digital Akron event.

May 30, 2013 – Memorial Day was on Monday this week. This is a great American holiday. The soldiers that have served and have fallen are the people responsible for giving us everything we have today.

Let's talk about tools and resources that are free to help your business grow online. We'll look at free tools and free resources that are all available to us.

June 27, 2013 – Independence Day is right around the corner. We'll talk about how local companies are using independent contractors to help them with their online marketing initiatives. We'll talk about the good, the bad and the ugly.

July 25, 2013 – Yesterday was Pioneer Day in Utah. This day celebrates the bravery of the original settlers and their strength of character and physical endurance. This is a good day to talk about blogging. If there is any part of web marketing that requires strength of character and physical endurance, it's blogging. We'll talk about the pros and cons of blogging and if it's right for you. Plus we'll talk about how to get started blogging.

August 29, 2013 – Two days ago it was Lyndon Baines Johnson Day.

President Johnson's first ever public reference to the 'Great Society' took place during a speech to students on May 7, 1964, at Ohio University in Athens. "And with your courage and with your compassion and your desire, we will build the Great Society. It is a Society where no child will go unfed, and no youngster will go unschooled."

Let's use this day to talk about education. It is evolving faster than you can say "Medicare, and Medicaid."

We'll talk about the latest tools in online education that are being used to help people learn important skills to keep up with this insanely paced evolution of change we are all participating in.

September 26, 2013 – Today we celebrate Shemini Atzeret (or Shmini Atzeret) and Simchat Torah. Shemini Atzeret is a time when prayers or celebrations for rain and a good harvest are made for the coming year in the Jewish calendar.

We can use this time to review Google Analytics so that we know how we've done with our work so far this year. And we can look to see where our plan needs readjusting.

We'll look at how to make the best use of Google Analytics to help your business.

October 31, 2013 – Halloween! Many European cultural traditions hold that Halloween is a time when magic is most potent and spirits can make contact with the physical world.

So we, of course, will look at the latest online video tools. We'll look at mobile tools, live tools and editing tools so that your business video spirit can make contact with the physical world.

November 28, 2013 is Thanksgiving. So no Digital Akron then. Eat something!

December 26, 2013 is the day after Christmas. Let's skip this one too.

Like all Digital Akron events this is a roundtable event. These are casual events where we all talk as a group about the topic of the day.You are encouraged to ask tons of questions and share your own experiences. Digital Akron is not about one person "presenting" something to you. It's about sharing as a group experiences and observations we've all had. This is an hour and a half you are not going to want to miss. Oh! And it's free and there are free drinks and snacks. Getting into the event is first come first serve.

So not only do you get free access to the event you also get free drinks and snacks!
