As the incoming president, I am overjoyed to announce the new 2013 Board of Directors for Social Media Club of Hawaii! Voting was held last week and a majority of our professional members approved the new slate! This year we have a few returning volunteers, but a lot of new ones too. We have an unprecedented number of board members, and I am excited to have the opportunity to be a part of such a diverse and talented group of people.
This is my last blog post as SMCHI President. What an amazing ride its been.
Since becoming involved in SMCHI in 2009, I’ve become part of SMCHI and SMCHI has become part of me.
And as much as I’ve dedicated countless hours to SMCHI, its members, its events and sponsors, I’ve received much in return.
First, a little bit a about us:
We are Social Media Club of Hawaii, an educational nonprofit organization. The members of Social Media Club commit to developing and supporting best practices of transparency, authenticity, and ethics in the use of social media and social networking. Our members are leaders in the field and are helping to define these business practices.
Happy New Year! Fresh starts abound and no where is this more true than at SMCHI where we’re preparing to have the Professional members vote on our 2013 nominee class. As an eventful SMCHI 2012 comes to an end, I thought it appropriate to share with our members some this year’s highlights.
To All of Our Friends, Members, and Sponsors,
I have submitted my resignation to the board of directors (and it was accepted) effective yesterday, December 20, 2012. Having founded this chapter over four years ago and having been a founding member of our parent organization, Social Media Club, I have enjoyed countless memorable experiences in developing and sharing the best practices of social media!
The goals and operations of the chapter are moving in different directions now, many of which I do not support. I wish everyone the best and continue to live by one of my favorite beliefs: perfectly reasonable people can disagree about everything.
