Winter Conference — Social Media for County Government

This year’s MACo Winter Conference, December 11-13, 2013 at the Hyatt in Cambridge, offers attendees a “nuts-and-bolts” style training session from two experts in social media.

Join us on Thursday, December 12, 9:00 am – 10:15 am, for “Social Media: Making It Work for You.” Speakers will share how local government can take advantage of the power of social media. The session description and confirmed speakers are below.

DescriptionEvidence of social media’s growing dominance is all around us, but what can government learn from social media’s success stories? What are Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn and how do you use them?  How can you avoid pitfalls when putting your message out to the public? Learn from the experts how to use social media not only to extend your public information capabilities, but to improve the work of other government departments, too.  They will tell you what will and won’t work in this dynamic medium and teach you how frame your message for maximum reach.  Now is the time to start the dialog that will increase your audience and enhance your operations.
