SOCIAL MEDIA COMMITTEE
The Social Media Committee (SMC) was established as an Ad-Hoc Committee by the Department Commander in mid-2014, and as a full Committee by the Department Executive Committee at the 2016 Department Convention. The members are appointed by the Department Commander for a 1-year term.
The Committee members all have a background in social media, web design, multi-media presentations, journalism, photography, video production, entertainment, voice over work and radio.
They are responsible for all Department social media outlets (website, e-newsletter, Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, YouTube, Periscope), developing social media campaigns for Department Committees and Chapters, assisting Chapters and individuals with setting up social media accounts, producing videos, brochures, etc. and for promulgating training seminars for all Chapters in Virginia so they may become part of the social media world.
Not sure if you or your Chapter needs to be on social media?
