Washington, DC (PRWEB) September 17, 2013
During the webinar, Andy Steggles, President and Chief Social Strategist at Higher Logic, will share real-world examples of how associations like American Institute of Architects (AIA), American Society of Association Executives (ASAE) and the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SEP) have leveraged the benefits of discussion groups, libraries, blogs, gamification and knowledge-sharing to drive engagement, promote information-sharing and increase collaboration.
Attendees of the webinar, slated for Thursday, Sept. 26 from 2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. ET, will learn:
“Social media is becoming more and more important for associations to use as a tool to drive membership and engagement,” said Steggles, author of Social Networking for Non-Profits. “However, associations are only just starting to realize the opportunity with respect to member engagement. Collaborative technologies impact every department, but often they don’t understand how to leverage the tools available to them. Our Social Media Survival Guide series is designed to address that issue. By presenting real-life examples of social media successes, we hope to spark ideas that can fuel attendees’ plans for their own organizations and provide guidelines in how to best engage their audiences.”
