Message from the Chair

April 9, 2014

To Tweet or Not to Tweet- is that even the question? With new social media platforms being developed so rapidly, how do you decide what to spend your time and energy on? We hope that today’s panel offered insight to finding the best fit for your organization. Just as our organizations have a specific message, so should our social media strategy. It’s important for us always to remember- we can’t be all things to all people- that holds true for our causes and for us as professionals!  Social Media can truly enhance your communications- so choose wisely, and tweet, post, check-in and blast away!

NOTE: LOCATION CHANGE for April meeting!
