You know how August was supposed to be the month Social Media Club-DC was going to slow things down to cool off (literally), review new leadership team applications, and plan for the upcoming year? No way. There are too many good things going on that we are excited about. And here we go!
Celebrating new SMCDC officers, August 18
BIG thanks to everyone who applied to be part of SMC-DC leadership. We are currently reviewing applications and placing folks in positions we think will shine and help our community. We will send congratulations out to team members this week and formally announce the 2010-2011 leadership team next week. to celebrate, you are cordially invited to happy hour on August 18 to mix and mingle with our new team! Save the date and stay tuned for more details, but the event will be held in DC proper, probably Chinatown or downtown. If you would like to sponsor this event, please contact us at socialmediaclubdc [at] gmail.com.
Raising funds for Gulf families with CitizenEffect, August 25
We are also proud to announce that Social Media Club-DC has joined Citizen Effect’s CitizenGulf project on it’s National Day of Action — August 25 in alignment with the week of the fifth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. The benefit — to be promoted by Gulf Coast Benefit — seeks to help fishing families find a new, more sustainable future by providing education resources for their children.
Social Media Club very much supports the project, which will take place in cities from Honolulu all the way to New York. Please join us for our event in DC at Busboys and Poets (5th & K, NW). In honor of New Orleans, we’re jazzing it up — literally! We hope you’ll be there to support this great cause and for the good times à la Mardi Gras :) Please click here to RSVP and help us spread the word!
If you or your company is interested in supporting this great cause by sponsoring our CitizenGulf event, please register for the appropriate level and we’ll get in touch with you to add your logo or an image/link to your blog on our Eventbrite page and other promotions. Thank you in advance!
See you all on August 18 and 25!
