Professional Association Committees

Many government communication professionals want to be an even bigger part of the Government Social Media professional association. Serving on a committee has a direct impact on the community you love, and is a great way to get to know other dedicated professionals in government!

Recruitment is currently closed. Committee members are recruited annually, with appointed terms starting after annual council elections. 

Awards Committee

Provides direction to maintain and grow an exceptional recognition program that empowers and celebrates work by individuals and agencies to elevate the SocialGov profession. The annual Golden Post Awards program honors outstanding use of social media by government agencies in the United States.

Co-Chairs: Kristen Waggener, Katie Grant and Chelsea Sawyer


Membership Committee

Supports the professional association membership experience by providing insight to recruit and retain members, identify their needs, help them connect with one another and their regional representatives, while also elevating the profession and member accomplishments.

Co-Chairs: Zach Whitney and Andrew Belanger 


Training Committee

As the social media landscape continues to evolve, it is essential that government social media managers evolve with it. The Training Committee identifies best practices and develops tools that ensure members gain the skills to confidently and effectively communicate their organization's messages.

Chair: Marie Tweedy


Committee FAQs

Committees generally meet via a one-hour Zoom meeting once per month, plus additional responsibilities outside of meetings.

The Awards Committee generally involves more time commitment from January to March, as it involves judging and planning the awards ceremony.

Appointments are typically for one year, though recruitment for the first-ever committees is kicking off in October 2021, so the term for the inaugural committees is from November 2021 through June 2022

Moving forward, committee member appointments will run from July to June (with applications being accepted in June, appointment in July, and the term running through the following June). 

Committee members may re-apply each June to express their interest in being appointed again.
