Social Media Club Quarterly Mixer – Wednesday. March 7th

As social media evolves, the way the Victoria Social Media Club operates has evolved as well. The SMC Victoria leadership is pleased to announce some exciting changes to our meeting format!

Firstly, as of March 7th, we will begin to meet quarterly. When possible the group will meet the first Wednesday of every “seasonal change” month (meaning March, June, September and December).

Secondly, our meeting format will turn to more of a mixer & informational session. Every meeting will host a “Social Media Help Desk” from 6:30-7pm for all levels of social media users. Bring your questions about how to start up a Facebook business page, what does a hashtag mean and how can I best gather search engine optimization.

You are invited to attend Social Media, Citizen Engagement and Municipal Politics on Monday, October 17th at 6:45pm at the University of Victoria, David Strong Building, room C126.

Mat Wright will be asking a panel of municipal candidates and political organizers their thoughts on Social Media as it effects municipal issues, in particularly the challenges and opportunities for citizen engagement at this level.

All municipal candidates who are using social media as a component within their campaign are invited to be part of the panel. Please contact @MatVic on Twitter.
