The Arc of the US Convention – 2009 Edition

Did you know that The Arc’s convention will have a session on Social Media from 1:30 PM to 3:00 PM on Friday, November 13?

Embracing Social Media (C)
Presenters: Ms. Stacy Monaghan, Online Advocacy Manager, The Arc of the United States; Mr. Jon Erickson, Ms. Kristin Erickson, Parlerai, Inc., Scituate, MA

This presentation will cover an overview of the top social media sites (i.e. Twitter, Facebook, YouTube) and answer the question “Why bother?” The session will also address how chapters can make these sites work for them, as well as see how The Arc of the United States is making use of social networking to further our mission. An example of how one family is using social networking and technology to support their daughter’s service coordination will also be highlighted.

If you haven’t done so, please sign up at the convention website.

I’ll be there and hope you will be, too!
