On Tuesday, October 22, we (Chicago's Social Media Club chapter) celebrated our five-year anniversary with the event “Where Are We Now?” We brought in a panel of long-time SMC members to speak at Answers Media. MJ Tam of Chicagonista, David Armano of Edelman Digital Chicago, Kelly Olexa, CEO and Founder of FitFluential, and Ramon De Leon, #RamonWOW Speaker, spoke to a crowd of about 100.
Guests were treated to a spread of veggies, hummus, fried chicken, and cheese and crackers. Bridgeport Pasty Co. was the event food sponsor and brought their delicious pasties in their Pastymobile food truck.
In the spirit of celebrating the 5 year anniversary of Social Media Club Chicago, we'll get to hear from several supporters and members who have been a part of our journey so far on October 22nd from 5:30pm to 7:30pm at Answers Media. (Register here: https://smcchicago5years.eventbrite.com)

If you weren’t able to make this month’s event, here’s what you missed. Doing something a little out of the norm, Social Media Club Chicago had a workout session with health and fitness expert Traci D Mitchell. Hosted by Cocoon Care, a modern gym for expectant and new moms, this event provided a great way to burn off some stress after a long day at work. There were a few new faces at this event, so it was fun talking with them about how they use social media in their work.
