Upping your Tech Fitness = Upping Your Client Service See below for session timing Room B Leveraging technology to better and more effectively deliver legal services to low-income clients should be a no-brainer. But, when it comes to knowing how best to use technology, that’s where we get stuck, especially when we’re busy with intake, hearings, recruiting volunteers, and giving presentations. You have a website, maybe use Twitter or YouTube, and have Legal Server for your case management system. But now what? Local “tech trainers” will be on hand to identify opportunities to take your tech  tness to the next level so you can really see results. Bring your current tech regimen and questions and you’ll come away with answers and ideas. And if the only place tech shows up in your organization is with email and Word, come to get ideas of where to begin! The tech trainers will cover the following topics:
Session #1: Reaching and Communicating with Clients and the Community Offered at 4:30-5:00 only • Client-Centered Design: Meet clients where they are looking – online and mobile platforms
• Social Media 201: Take your social media beyond posting once a month

Session #2: Improving Our Internal Systems Offered at 5:15-5:45 only
