AID hosts virtual conference

With offices around the globe, the Agency for International Development recently opted to hold its annual conference on the Web.

The three-week virtual conference drew nearly four times as many participants as the agency's in-person meeting, AID officials said.

AID, which runs the country's foreign economic and humanitarian assistance programs, usually draws about 35 members to its face-to-face conferences, said Bill Bruck, chief knowledge officer for Caucus Systems. The Washington company provided the technological support for the online conference.

Conference attendees received passwords so they could access a Web site created for the conference.
