GSM Membership Council

GSM runs a professional association for public sector employees who handle social media for government agencies and educational institutions. The association is guided by a Membership Council, made up of elected representatives each serving a specific region of the United States.

The Council advises on the needs of government social media professionals in one of the newest fields in government.

Conference Local Host Committee

The Local Host Committee (LHC) is an advisory group of appointed volunteers to help plan the Government Social Media Conference. Members are typically highly engaged social media or communication professionals in the public sector and work in the greater region where GSMCON is being held each year.

The LHC works in coordination with Team GSM and the GSM Membership Council to help plan an exceptional conference experience!
