Heard a lot about social media, but not sure what it is? Interested in learning more about the power of social media, or just simply how to use Facebook? If so, then you need to attend this introductory social media seminar, sponsored by the Central Toronto (CenTor) Amateur Radio Club. During this seminar, we will provide an overview of social media, how it is used and how hams around the globe are embracing this technology for the benefit of amateur radio.


Sign in at the reception desk just inside the front door of the west wing. Please note that visitor access is restricted if you have a cough, cold or flu.

The Conference Room is located to the right of the elevator at the end of the hall, down one level from the main entrance.

By TTC: The #25 Don Mills bus stops at Overlea and Wm Morgan Dr, and connects to Pape Station.
