GSMCON2022 will be held at the Sheraton Dallas Hotel in Dallas, Texas.
The Local Host Committee (LHC) is an advisory group of appointed volunteers to serve specific functions for the Government Social Media Conference. Members are typically highly engaged social media or communication professionals in the public sector and work in or near the city or greater region where GSMCON is being held.
We’re excited to bring GSMCON2022 to Dallas, Texas, and thrilled to form a group of dynamic professionals who know major players in the region, can help get key agencies involved and who are excited to make the event a total success for both the region and our nation.
We recently recruited for the GSMCON2022 Local Host Committee, and we'll be announcing members soon!
Local Host Committee members help with making GSMCON an even greater success! Members participate in monthly Zoom planning meetings leading up to the event and assist with various on-site duties at GSMCON2022 — all members receive a complimentary ticket! Previous LHC responsibilities included assisting with restaurant romp, set-up/tear-down, serving as onstage emcees, network ambassadors and more. We recognize that some people are comfortable speaking onstage while others enjoy working behind-the-scenes magic, so we’ll work with members to find suitable opportunities that work for everyone!
The 2022 LHC term runs through April 2022 with a final wrap-up call after GSMCON2022 ends.
Members of the LHC receive complimentary admission to GSMCON2022 in Dallas, TX and up to three nights stay at the event venue (the Sheraton Dallas Hotel) during the event if needed. Because many LHC members will be local, some may prefer to drive to the venue daily.
LHC members also receive recognition for their participation on the GSMCON2022 website, in the event program and verbal recognition at the event. Your service on the LHC will make a significant impact on the success of the event!
LHC members typically work in or near the city or greater region where GSMCON is being held – for 2022 that is Dallas, TX. Texas is a very large state and broader representation is welcomed, so we’re accepting applications from anyone who works within the borders of Texas. Members of the LHC must be employed full- or part-time in the public sector. Members of the committee must have involvement in social media or communications for their agency in some capacity.
Previous attendance at GSMCON is very helpful, but not required. A non-disclosure agreement between incoming members and Government Social Media LLC will be required and LHC members must agree not to disclose any private information such as attendee registration information, operational data or explicitly private information. Committee members must agree to represent the best interests of the conference and demonstrate respect for each other, integrity and civility throughout their term.
We accepted applications to serve on the Local Host Committee from August 17 - September 3, 2021.
LHC members must work within the borders of Texas, though we may have other opportunities to help with the event. Please reach out to us!
We will review applications, reach out to candidates if follow-up is needed and will select committee members no later than September 17, 2021.
Yes, we will reimburse LHC committee members for their on-site parking at the venue during our event.
LHC members will have access to the conference meals included as a part of a normal ticket: Continental breakfasts and lunches on Tuesday and Wednesday, and continental breakfast only on Thursday.
If you're selected to serve on the LHC and you've recently paid for your registration, we'll refund your registration fee. If you're selected to serve on the LHC and you're a transferee or have a complimentary ticket for 2022 for any other reason, we'll give you a complimentary ticket for the next GSMCON.
