Love them or hate them, nearly everyone needs a filter on their network. And with so many options on the market – not to mention different solutions, features, pros and cons – there's a lot to learn and know.
Here at WiscNet we'll be the first to tell you we don't know it all. But we believe that's okay – because as a membership organization, we have many, many different members who do know, who can speak from their own experiences (good and bad), who have much to share.
We know many of you are learners when it comes to filtering, too. So we're hosting an event – Teach and Learn with WiscNet: Filtering – where we'll all have the opportunity to explore the wide world of web filtering. We'll cover the "whats" and the "hows" – important requirements, the "nice-to-haves," the challenges, observations, likes and dislikes, sob and success stories.
And the "why?" Well, you've told us yourselves, over and over, how much you value time spent with one another – that connecting people and strategies stuff that is WiscNet's mission, ethos, and guiding light. We believe this applies as much to something as necessary in your world as filtering as it does to anything else. What could you teach about web filters in a room full of fellow WiscNet members? What could you learn?
Join us on Tuesday, August 6 from 10:00am-1:30pm at WiscNet World Headquarters in Madison to talk and listen about all things filtering. We'll eat lunch together. And we'll access the deep value of what it means to be a WiscNet member: teaching, learning from, connecting to one another.
