Our mission, first and foremost, is to promote NVTC as a leader in social media. The group will strive to embrace this new medium and adapt to its ever changing environment. Through educational forums and insightful dialogue with NVTC members, the Social Media committee will become a valuable resource for those in the Northern Virginia technology community who want to use social media tools to improve how they communicate with key audiences. While there is a need to understand more about the tools that make up the social media landscape, most importantly, it is about what tools are the best fit for businesses and how they fit into a company's overall goals. NVTC's Social Media committee will address these very issues that are top-of-mind with the members.
Follow the NVTC Social Media Committee blog at NVTCSMC.com. The purpose of the blog is to share the latest information on social media best practices and trends with the NVTC community. Follow our blog and join in on the conversation. Have an idea for blog content? Let us know as we encourage guest blogger contribution in addition to posts by regular committee members.
The committee meets on the 4th Tuesday of each month.
To Be Announced
