Join the Social Media Club of Lawrence at Signs of Life at 7:30 a.m. on Wed., Feb. 27. We will be discussing where we go to find the best online learning sources.

What if social media was just a part of a larger digital experience for your customers?
Join us from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday, February 20, 2013 at Signs of Life, 722 Massachusetts St, Lawrence, as we explore this question.
We’ll watch excerpts from a recent interview with Brian Solis, author of the upcoming book, What’s the Future of Business, and previous books, The End of Business as Usual and Engage!
I’m pleased to finally announce the new board members for Social Media Club of Lawrence!
Since we’re a small group, we didn’t hold any type of election. Rather, we asked our community members to apply if they were interested in serving and to let us know what area they wanted to work on, and then our current board figured out where to assign everyone.
We are lucky to have such a committed group of volunteers and members in Lawrence. Nine people applied to be on the board. (One person had to withdraw because she got a new job in Kansas City. We’re sad to lose another member to the KC commute!)
Here are the new board members and their assignments:
Josh Davis, @joshd
Cheryl Hanback, @chanback
Beth McKeon, @beth_mckeon
Charlie Bryan, @charliebryan
Adrian Jacobs, @adrianjacobs
If you want to get more involved in social media and the Lawrence community, the Social Media Club of Lawrence is looking for you!
It’s time to add new volunteers to the board of directors.
What does the board of directors do?
We communicate with each other frequently via email using a Google group. We plan weekly- yes, weekly!- meetings for folks in Lawrence and the surrounding areas who are interested in social media. We have solutions meetings for non-profit groups and other organizations who are looking for help with social media. We occasionally plan lunch or evening meetings and presentations. And we help promote other social media-related events in the area.
All of this takes a dedicated group of volunteers who are committed to making this awesome group even bigger and more awesome.
What positions are available?
With September being National Preparedness Month, the Social Media Club of Lawrence visited the Douglas County Emergency Operations Center Sept. 19 to learn about how the Douglas County Emergency Management agency communicates during a major event, emergency or accident.
Jillian Rodrique, DCEM Assistant Director (pictured) and Bob Newton, DCEM Duty Officer and Public Information Officer gave the group a rundown of how they communicate, and how social media plays a role in their communications.
