On any given day, I post 3-4 times on 6-8 different Facebook pages, send out 50-60 tweets under 6-8 accounts, participate in an hour-long tweet chat, upload a YouYube video, publish a blog, respond to 20-30 emails all while monitoring and responding to questions or mentions for all of these accounts. That was a mouth full, but this is what it’s like as a social media manager.
WOW. Get five energetic, creative people in a room, mix in a Google Hangout, add a little beer, some pupus and what do you get? Insane brainstorming, problem solving and ideas. Your BOD this year is ALL in and I think its going to be an exciting year. It goes without saying that so many people have worked hard to get SMCHI to this point and we can’t thank you enough for your support.
I wanted to give you a little run down on our meeting and the general direction of SMCHI this year.

As more and more businesses immerse themselves in social media, the need for a company-wide social media policy becomes more and more apparent. Because social media impacts so many areas of a business including marketing, customer service and human relations to name some more obvious examples, creating a policy can present some unique challenges for businesses. Whether you’re running a small business or managing the needs of a regulated industry, your company will need a social media policy.
How DO forward thinking employers create policies that empower employees in the social media space while at the same time protecting the company’s many legal and branding considerations?
Let me ask you a question. When was the last time you went to the mainland for a conference? By the time you paid for hotel, transportation, meals, not to mention air travel, I bet it cost you anywhere from $3,000-$5,000 for a couple of days of professional development. Imagine if you could have national-level education with some of the industry’s most respected authors, speakers and educators without ever leaving your own state?
