To all of you who have been involved with, touched, inspired or helped by Social Media Club – please read this message because we need your help.
Social Media Club was launched in 2006 with a global mission to advance digital media literacy, promote ethical behavior and build a community of like minded professionals to meet and learn from one another. Over the past six years, we launched over 350 Chapters, managed 50+ educational events and continue to work to connect professionals around the globe.
Social Media Club has positively impacted the lives of hundreds of thousands of people, including hopefully, you. If you have attended our national or local events, learned something, met someone who impacted your life, secured a job/client, found the perfect employee or any and everything in-between, we respectfully ask for your help.

Our model has always been to empower people to launch local Chapters under the umbrella of the national Social Media Club. It was wildly successful. But this organic model of growth did not create a sustainable financial foundation needed to provide the support, programming and community development activities needed to keep the association and it’s Chapters functioning.
We truly believe there is a bright future for Social Media Club. Your investment will help significantly in a few critical areas: expand our Chapters; further education by through more original content, market research reports; and new events both live and virtual. Your support will also go to hire our first ever Executive Director to lead Social Media Club into the future, and critical web site development support to create a more functional user experience..
With very little, we have accomplished so much for so many people.
If Social Media Club has been of any value to you, whether personally or professionally, please take the time to help us with this effort by sending a donation via http://bit.ly/smcdonate today. And evangelize! Spread the word! We know the power of social media all too well – be a part of it.
Thank you so very much for your support over the years. We look forward to many more.
President and Co-Founder
