Together with Connecting for Good, last week's computer drive generated over 40 computers to be donated to Kansas City's neighborhoods. Connecting for Good's digital literacy program is intended to help low income residents gain access to Google's offer of seven years of internet access for $300 (payable in 12 monthly installments).
Time and time again when we survey our membership, we are encouraged to add more in-depth professional content for our members that are past the social media 101 hurdle. By rolling out an improved focus on professional membership and development, we are answering these wishes.
To receive the full benefit of these initiatives, we are asking our professional members to register for annual professional memberships through The Social Media Club. You can sign up here:
This $100 annual fee provides benefits in the form of discounted professional lunch costs, addition to our media contacts list, and more, all of which are incentives for your employer to pick up the tab on your fee.
A helpful list of points to send to your head honcho as follows:
Immediately following this week's breakfast, from 9-10am Friday, November 2, SMCKC and Connecting for Good are holding a computer drive to collect internet-enabled devices to be distributed to lower income Kansas City residents. Please bring used and unwanted laptops, desktop computers, tablets or mobile phones that you would like to donate. We will accept any desktop or laptop (Mac or PC) whether it is in working condition or not. Non-broken monitors and peripherals can also be donated; if they are broken Synetic will recycle them for you for a fee.
At the Social Media Club of Kansas City, we’re continually invested in providing exciting events and content for our members.
And because we recognize that a portion of our membership is comprised of people who work with social media in a professional sense, we’ve created an all-new SMCKC Professional Membership package designed to provide greater levels of content and professional development to our members.
Our $100/year Professional Membership will include:
• Discounted admission to a monthly professional luncheon with a guest speaker on an advanced-level social media topic.
• Access to post personal blog posts on SMCKC Facebook page and websites
• Discounts to Social Media Club National workshops and events.
• Special invitations to Social Media Club National events.
• Listing in the SMC Professional Speakers Directory
