Inspired by the [http://www.communityleadershipsummit.com Community Leadership Summit] run each year before [http://www.oscon.com/ OSCON], Donna Benjamin will convene CLSx at LCA to bring together community leaders, organisers and managers and the projects and organisations that are interested in growing and empowering a strong community. We invite the leading minds in community management, relations and online collaboration to discuss, debate and continue to refine the art of building an effective and capable community.

Activating the SIM:
  
As an open unconference-style event, everyone who attends is welcome to lead and contribute sessions on any relevant topic.  
+
* Insert the SIM in the phone
 +
* Make sure the correct network is selected
 +
* Call 200
 +
* First do a top-up (1).  Minimum amount is 20 NZD, done by credit card
 +
* You probably don't want to have them save your credit card details, otherwise the combo pack will automatically renew when you leave.
 +
* You get a text message confirming it.
 +
* Add a combo pack or data pack
 +
* You get a text message confirming it.
  
The Community Leadership Summit began in 2009 in Portland, Oregon, USA, and has grown to be a key fixture on the open source event calendarCLS was conceived and is organised each year by Jono Bacon. He is now Senior Director of Community at XPRIZE, and formerly community manager for the global Ubuntu community and author of [http://www.artofcommunityonline.org/ The Art of Community] by O’Reilly.

Jono started the summit as a first step in helping community managers and leaders to define and refine their work, share knowledge and make connections in a vendor neutral way. And now, CLS is going global. CLSx events are local CLS style events that happen in locations around the world.

* Telstra has something similar - see https://www.telstra.com.au/mobile-phones/international-roaming#intravelpass.
 +
* So does Vodafone: http://www.vodafone.com.au/personal/international-roaming
 +
* Don't accidentally use roaming data without getting some sort of travel pack active first.  You will almost certainly regret it.
 +
* Picking up a New Zealand SIM will probably still work out cheaper than roaming travel packs, especially if you only really care about data.
