The Government Social Media professional association is served by a group of elected volunteer advisors representing regions across the United States. Elections are underway as the Southeast, Southwest and West region council terms are ending and the Northeast region has a vacant seat.
A Note to Our Outgoing GSM Council (from the Executive Director)
Though your membership council terms have come to an end – Chris Hsiung, Mary McGuire, Jay Socol and Jon Tolbert — we’re so grateful for your commitment, and we can’t wait to see all that you accomplish moving forward.
As the association’s Executive Director, I’ve seen how you have shown not only deep dedication to your field, but also to each individual in it. You’re always willing to help your peers across the country, step in when help is needed, and support the strategic direction of the association.
During one of the most difficult years members have faced both personally and professionally, you (along with Warren Kagarise and Jessie Brown, fellow council members continuing to serve their terms) allowed both us and fellow members to lean on you for support, advice and friendship.
Throughout your tenure, you helped us:
Thank you for taking on expanded roles within the council to champion new projects and execute the association’s vision. We will continue our mission of uplifting government social media professionals by sharing best practices, guidance and providing a place for our community to connect and collectively learn from each other.
As we will welcome several new incoming council members next week, we wanted you to know how you, like the honorable councils before you, have laid such an important groundwork for our organization and future council members to come.
From all of us at Team GSM, THANK YOU.
Kristy Dalton, GSM founder and Executive Director of the GSM professional association
