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 (Social Media Club LA) is having their May event on Wednesday evening, May 23 at the Edmunds.com headquarters in Santa Monica. It’s all about Social TV and its evolution – so what are you waiting for? RSVP now and tell them I sent ya! Better still, tell ME and I’ll be on the lookout for you!
What is Social TV? It’s the mash-up of tv watching and the chatter going on on social channels. Did you vote for a favorite contestant on American Idol? Do you check in on GetGlue? Do you live-blog or live-tweet during sporting events? Do you watch programming on Blip.tv or Yap.tv? Have you downloaded Conan O’Brien’s app (Go Team CoCo!)? That’s part of it. On the back-end where the nerds sit (me… you), social tv is also something that companies look at to increase viewership, engagement, and quite frankly, prove that there is interest in a particular show.
