Get It Online: Legal Implications of Social Media for Communication & Government Relations Executives
12:00 - 1:30 p.m., Friday, June 7
Whether you are a communications director, public relations strategist or government relations professional, questions about how to use social media as a communications tool are commonplace. As these technologies become more prevalent, they raise many legal issues.
At the June "Get It Online" lunch discussion, we will explore the legal aspects of social media. What happens if I tweet about my activities? What if my client posts updates on Facebook? It this lobbying activity? Does this implicate LDA registration? Do I have to worry about state lobbying laws? What if I’m working with a corporation or trade association? Do I need to worry about campaign finance laws? What are some best practices?
Jason Torchinsky, a partner at the law firm Holtzman Vogel Josefiak PPLC, will present about the current views on these issues from the legal perspective. Please register in advance: INSERT LINK
