As mentioned in the video above, Social Media Club would like to give a special ‘thanks’ our original 66 Co-Founders, the people who paid a ‘premium’ membership before June 2008 to help the organization get up and running, and in return, received a special designation of Co-Founder of Social Media Club. They not only supported us financially in the critical early stages, many helped by starting local chapters in their respective cities and provided thought leadership and feedback on our missions that helped shape the organization to be what it is today. These 66 folks are truly pioneers in social media, and have made a serious contribution to the community at large.

If you have received any benefit from the events we have organized over the past five+ years, please join as a Professional member today. Social Media Club is dedicated to helping professionals in many diverse fields, from Marketing and PR to Designers, Web Developers, Journalists and Technologists – and those boundary spanners who fit many of these categories at once – to learn from each other, share their emerging techniques and expand each other’s capacity to contribute back to the community. The conversations in which we participated with the various Social Media Club Chapters in different cities have shared one common attribute – the participation of highly intelligent people asking great questions and talking openly about what they know for the benefit of all those in the room, and all those in the larger community. If that kind of intelligent inquiry and dialogue sound appealing, consider joining us now and contribute your perspective in this crucial phase of our development. Thank you.
