The 10th Annual C3 Conference begins on Tuesday, August 3, 2021
Welcome to the New Home of the C3 Conference!
This year marks the 10th year anniversary of the Catholic Communication Collaboration's C3 "Tech" Conference. Due to COVID-19, we adapted to learn and develop new techniques relying on the use of technology in our schools and parishes to continue our ministries throughout the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. We also continue to adhere to protocols and precautions resulting from the pandemic, therefore the C3 Conference will again be virtual.
Last year on day one of the Conference, everyone shared their pandemic experiences in numerous sessions grouped by job/position within the Archdiocese. This year, sessions will be similarly grouped to continue to focus on new and current technology-related techniques, with an exciting new change: We will be offering On-Demand sessions that will be interactive. The Conference will have our usual live sessions on day one, Tuesday, August 3, 2021 followed by the new "on-demand" sessions through August 6, 2021. The schedule of sessions are expected to be available in mid-June.
It does not matter where you are, where you work or what job and responsibilities you have, you can virtually attend this year’s C3 Conference for FREE!
As the C3 Conference 2020 concluded, we can truly say we all had many excellent take-aways from the event. We are amazed that our participation exceeded 3,000 people with almost 30,000 Zoom interactions, 200 sessions with 80 moderators. All of you were terrific participants and we appreciate your patience with the tech glitches and learning loopholes of our first virtual effort. We are all learning together and frankly we are grateful for the participation levels and the many terrific interactions. Indeed, necessity took us all a very long way!
DAY ONE: Archbishop Gomez, David Bezzant and Sr. AnnCarla Castello opened the Conference and set the tone for the day one. In the breakout sessions, people from across the Archdiocese and beyond were able to get together and exchange ideas and experiences throughout the day, we learned how important those exchanges can be. C3 also learned how to deal with first-time glitches and loopholes that can occur during any virtual conference.
DAY TWO: Bishop Alex Aclan, Dr. Tony Galla and Dr. Lauren Casella opened, introduced and set the tone for day two. In addition, our presenters far exceeded our expectations and presented excellent material in virtual environments that seemed to become true communities by the end of each presentation.
Over the two days, Conference participants listened, shared and learned. We look forward to seeing all of you in other events and working with you to leverage all of the positive experiences from the Conference in your ministries and endeavors in the Archdiocese. Thanks to you and all the staff and others who made this a success.
