Jun 26, 2024

Keep up on the latest trends while getting valuable info for your important government social media role during these upcoming virtual webinars & chats in July 2024.

We’re virtually getting together in the free GSM network & GSM professional association on topics that matter most to you, on everything from learning more about what artificial intelligence can do for you to becoming the subject matter expert at your agency.

Mark your calendars & RSVP at these events!

Free GSM network & GSMChats

The free GSM network is where you’ll find a place to ask questions, share advice and genuinely meet fellow socialgovs working in public sector social media. While a lot of great collaboration happens publicly on the social networks, the GSM network is different because members are exclusively employees of government agencies and educational institutions – and, members get access to perks only the platform like starting a direct 1:1 chat or group chat.

A major benefit of joining the network is to participate in our bi-weekly Government Social Media Chats (GSMChat), happening every other Thursday since 2015. You’ll meet with government social media professionals to discuss and share ideas with each other on different topics in a text-only chat. Recaps are available for most chats, too! 

Register & RSVP to attend chats in the free GSM network.

10 a.m. PT / 1 p.m. ET, Thursday, July 18: Becoming the Social Media SME at Your Agency
Even if you're a social media whiz, you might still face dismissive attitudes from colleagues who don't fully appreciate the value of your work. Establishing yourself as the go-to Subject Matter Expert (SME) in social media at your agency can be a challenging journey, but it's one that can boost your confidence and enhance your influence over time.

We’ll explore strategies to elevate your role from a social media staffer to the recognized social media expert within your agency. Don’t miss this chance to empower yourself and amplify your impact! Attend this chat in the free GSM network.

10 a.m. PT / 1 p.m. ET, Thursday, August 1: Branch Out! Exploring Alternative Social Media Platforms
While government agencies often stick to a few mainstream social networks, some are now venturing into online communities that foster niche conversations or opportunities to connect with younger or more diverse audiences. Are you ready to explore these new frontiers?

Join us for #GSMChat on Thursday, August 1, 2024 as we dive into the pros/cons and talk strategy for government agencies on platforms like Reddit, Snapchat, Pinterest, WhatsApp and more. Discover how your agency could thrive and engage in these dynamic digital spaces! RSVP now.
