Happy New Year Social Media Club DC Members!
As we look forward to the New Year, our January meeting will be on government and social media, specifically those that actually work outside government agencies (contractors, media, etc.).
Special thanks to Booz Allen Hamilton for sponsoring the event and to the Partnership for Public Service for generously offering space.
Title: Government 2.0 Part II
Social media is set to make a big splash in 2009 and beyond, especially with President Barack Obama's administration openly embracing online marketing tactics. What does this mean for government contractors, government focused media outlets, and those actively engaged with government agencies that face challenges around social media adoption? Small and large contractors who focus on military, defense, intelligence, public service and other sectors will all benefit from this open discussion on social media in government. We'll discuss the overall government strategy and what the potential roadmap for 2009 looks like, how government agencies and contractors have collaborated so far, what works and what doesn't, how to harness the collective intelligence of people to contribute to government, and what's next in the relationship between social media and government.
