Member Education: Social Media For Introverts Throwback

August 25, 2022 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm UTC-4

Join us for this highly successful webinar throwback originally aired in August of 2021 with Live Q&A featuring NASDDDS Communications Director, Carrie McGraw!

Social media can be a useful tool for quickly communicating with constituents in a meaningful and reciprocal manner. Providing information, connecting communities, and receiving feedback are important strengths of this platform; however, bureaucracy and fear can lead to underutilization or misuse of these important tools. Adding to this complication, social media planning in state government is often left to staff with many other responsibilities or a centralized communications team without specific subject matter expertise. How do you bridge this gap and make the best use of your department’s social media? How do you ensure accessibility and universal design while effectively getting your messaging across to a broad base? This webinar is for directors or state staff interested in strengthening your communications and social media game and understanding what it takes to effectively use multiple platforms as part of a successful strategy.
