Ten Ways to Participate in CGI’s 10th Annual Meeting


Every September for the past ten years, leaders from around the world have gathered in New York City for the Annual Meeting of the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI). While the defining feature of CGI—the Commitment to Action—has remained the centerpiece of the model, many aspects of the Annual Meeting have evolved over the years. 
One major shift has been how individuals around the world can participate in the meeting online, benefiting from the parallel rise of social media over the last decade. With so many new opportunities to engage in session discussions, with speakers, and with member commitments, we wanted to share the top 10 ways you can join the global conversation around CGI’s 10th Annual Meeting. 

Use the Official Meeting Hashtag #CGI2014

During last year’s meeting, thousands of people participated in the conversation online, which reached more than 150 million people worldwide.  You can join the discussion by using the official meeting hashtag, #CGI2014, across your social media channels.
