2011 Events

The 4th quarter of 2011 will be the busiest one of the year for the Chicago Digital Access Alliance (CDAA) with three major events on tap.


This year’s Dexcon(tm) Fall 2011, which was scheduled for Friday and Saturday, October 28-29, 2011, will now be moved to back to the original schedule for 2011 in 2012, which is a Spring Dexcon 2012 in May 2012 and our Dexcon Fall 2012 in October 2012. Of course next year will be a presidential election year so there will be lots of excitement around who will be President in January 2013. We may have a Digital Excellence Road Show Dinner event before the end of the year.

So look for the Chicago Neighborhood Digital Excellence Conference and Technology Fair, known as DexCon(tm), in the Spring and Fall of 2012. Locations to be announced, watch this page for more info.


Finally, The FaithTech Network, in partnership with the CDAA and hosted by Connected Living Inc. will present its West Side Pastors’ Technology Resources Breakfast, on Friday, November 4, 2011, from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m., at Wallace’s Catfish Corner, 2800 West Madison Street, Chicago, Illinois 60624. The Honorable Danny Davis, 7th Congressional District Congressman and Rev. Kirk Gayton, who is developing one of the West Side’s largest CTCs, will be among the featured speakers.


Saturday, November 19, 2011 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., the CDAA presents its Neighborhood Technology Congress – West Side at the Blessed Sacrament Youth Center, 3600 West Cermak Road. Workshops, discussions, a keynote address, exhibits, raffling of 10 refurbished computers and free refreshments round out the 4-hour event. ADMISSION IS FREE but seats are limited.

All three events are part of the CDAA’s five-year “Connecting Chicago Neighborhoods To Digital Excellence” campaign which focuses on bringing technology to neighborhoods and neighborhood residents to technology resources through linking community technology/public computing centers to digital skills building initiatives.
