Social Media Strategies for Government Professionals

How can you use social media to better inform and engage your community?
Do you need to develop a social media policy for your organization? 

Now that you’ve established a social media presence, how do you get the most from it? How can you use Facebook, Twitter, and other platforms to inform and engage your community?

Do you know how to develop an effective social media policy for your organization? What does the First Amendment protect in terms of citizens’ comments? How about employees’ comments?

Bring your device (tablets, phones, etc.). We will be using them! 

In this one-day, interactive course, you will:

  • Get tips for increasing reach and engagement through various social media platforms;
  • Learn the elements of an effective social media policy;
  • Walk away with specific strategies to make social media work for your organization and community.
