Social Media Club is about learning, and the leadership team tries to bring some great speakers in every month to do just that.
But we have an immense amount of knowledge within our own community. So, given the warm weather, we thought we’d leave July “speaker-less”. That’s right, we are not featuring any particular speaker this month!
Do you have a topic that interests you? Perhaps a short presentation you want to present? Perhaps you want to facilitate a workshop or discussion on a particular topic? This is your chance!
Victoria’s first Social Media Camp is coming on October 3rd, 2010.
The first 100 registrants receive a signed copy of Scott Stratten’s new book, “UnMarketing: Stop Marketing. Start Engaging.”
To the best of our knowledge, this is the first “Social Media Camp” held in Canada. We are still accepting speaker applications.
Welcome to Social Media Club Victoria, where innovators from the local area can meet for monthly events to share, engage and collaborate with the community on the issues of social media and technology.
Please pardon our dust as we are in the process of building out this portal on the official Social Media Club website. For now, you can get information on our events and activities at http://socialmediaclub.ca

They are visiting our lovely city from San Francisco for one night only!
Let’s show them a fabulous time at the Bard & Banker Scottish Pub, 1022 Government Street, in Beautiful Victoria, British Columbia!
The upstairs bar and surrounding area are booked especially for us, but try not to be late – it’s a Friday night, so the bar has warned us they will let tables go if we are not using them by 7:30pm!
