WE ARE SACRAMENTO SOCIAL MEDIA ENTHUSIASTS
Social Media Club Sacramento (SMCSac) is deeply rooted in the communities of the greater Sacramento region. It has served as a catalyst for the Region’s social media conversation.
Over the years SMC Sacramento has covered important topics from the Arab Spring to #HereWeStay. SMCSac has explored social media usage from one end of the industry spectrum to the other, from farming to real estate and everything in between.
“The Unconference”, in partnership with the College of Continuing Education at Sacramento State, introduced many to the concept of socially organized conferences. In partnership with the Sacramento Business Journal, the Region was introduced to focused business training and education by means of the Connectionopolis series. Annually since 2013, as a training partner to the Sacramento Regional Community Foundation, SMCSac has provided social media education to help non-profits maximize the Region’s Big Day of Giving campaign.
#TheSocial, sometimes called “The UNsocial,” brought together social media enthusiasts and practitioners IRL at local restaurants and even Rivercats games. Beginning in 2016, SMCSac joined forces with other Sacramento professional associations as co-hosts of the annual MegaMixer.
Social Media Club Sacramento was founded in April 2009 by Sally Boorman Poggi, Jeff Marmins, Josh Morgan, and Ronnie Ledesma.
Social Media Club’s primary mission is to expand digital media literacy, promote standard technologies, encourage ethical behavior and share best practices. We bring together journalists, publishers, communications professionals, artists, amateur media creators, citizen journalists, teachers, students, tool makers, and other interested collaborators. Essentially the people who create and consume media who have an interest in seeing the ‘media industry’ evolve for everyone’s benefit. We are more than just USERS, we are the reason the tools exist – we are the people who communicate our thoughts and ideas near and far. Join us and let’s shape the future together!
