SMCLA joins forces with SMWLA: Sept 24 Social Media & Retail

SMCLA social media and retail september 24 2012

Join me and SMCLA on Sept. 24! Social Media for Retail.

Join me on Monday, September 24 at Cross Campus as we bring Turbo-Charging Social Media Engagement in Retail to you! SMCLA is hosting a panel with the likes of Laura Knapp of Social Spotlight Media; John Tabis of ShoeDazzle; and Nicole DeRuiter of Fresh & Easy! My friend and mentor Serena Ehrlich is moderating. You may know her as the current Marketing Director of Mogreet. I’ll also take “The tallest social media woman I know” as an answer.

Tickets are only $10 – come on, you can afford $10. SMCLA keeps tickets low so that everyone can join in the conversation. Help us keep them low.

I’ll see you there! If you have questions, tweet me at @thechrislam or @smc_LA. One of us will get back to you!

RSVP right here!


Not too late to attend Monday’s 7/30 SMCLA event!


Social Media Club LA – @smc_LA

It’s not too late to RSVP and grab your ticket for Monday night’s panel – “Can I Tweet That?” Social Media in Regulated Industries.

I’m moderating a fantastic panel – Julie MacMedan (VP of Investor Relations, Demand Media); Julie Linn (VP of Compliance, Green Dot); Erik Deutsch (Principal, Excel PR); Dustin Luther (Head of Social Media, Dun & Bradstreet Credibility Corp.), and Serena Ehrlich (Director of Marketing, Mogreet). These guys are experts in working through the rules and regs of a regulated industry and still moving social media forward within public companies.

If you’re interested in social media in PUBLIC companies, you should attend! We’re adding that extra layer that all regulated companies have to deal with. Learn about this side of things.

Tickets are only $15. We try to keep all SMCLA events affordable so everyone can join in the conversation. They are usually $10 before the day of the event!

We’ll be at the Yahoo! Community Center on the corner of 26th and Broadway in Santa Monica. Park in the underground parking lot, and we’ll validate your parking. (You know I love free parking!) If you’re familiar with the Daily Grill in Santa Monica, it’s on the other side of the block.



SMCLA January 31 Mobile Social Panel

As you may know, I serve as a board member and blog editor for SMCLA (Social Media Club LA). I’ve written a number of posts at SMCLA’s blog, and I’ve got two more up for your reading pleasure. Both are spotlights on two of our speakers at our upcoming event on Tuesday, January 31 (I have one more speaker spotlight that’ll be published next week.)

If you’re in the LA area, I encourage you to join us for our Understanding the Mobile User and the Future of Mobile Tools event. It’ll be held at the ING Direct Cafe in Westwood, right on the corner of Santa Monica and Cotner. You can’t miss it.

Speakers scheduled include:

  • David Teichner, CEO of Yowza!! – You may know it as the company that actor Greg Grunberg (of “Lost” and “Heroes” fame) co-founded a few years ago.
  • Tim Street, VP of mDialog – These guys offer advertising via streaming on mobile devices. Tim also is a co-host of This Week in Media.
  • Patrick Mahoney, VP of Biz Dev and Strategy of Mogreet – The company makes mobile apps and offers advertising via mobile. If you watch Pretty Little Liars, you can register your phone number to receive clues from “A.” That’s a Mogreet campaign. (Neat!)
