SMCHI Board Positions for 2012
This has been an amazing year – we are now one of the strongest and largest active chapters in the world, with over 30 Professional members! 2011 was also the first year we installed an official Board of Directors – in keeping with our agreement with the parent organization, Social Media Club. They, by the way, manage the official nonprofit status of the organization, handle all membership payments and processing, do the accounting for our chapter, and provide us with liability insurance – just to name a few things!
Please congratulate our newly elected 2012 Board of Directors! All of our current Pro members can be seen listed in the side bar.
