New Social Media Workshops Announced

MCLS is happy to announce two brand new social media classes being offered in the coming weeks:

Creating a Social Media Policy (online workshop)-October 14

Can my employees talk about my organization on social media: What if someone makes a negative comment on my organizations Facebook page? Creating a social media policy and/or guidelines can be extremely helpful in answering these questions and many others like them. Learn about Capital Area District Libraries experience as well as what you can and cannot include in a social media policy.

Developing a Social Media Content Plan (online workshop)-November 4

Navigating the ever-changing world of social media can be challenging. The rules change all the time, it can be difficult to get buy-in from staff and/or administration, and you have to decide just what exactly you are going to use social media for anyway. Creating a content plan for each social media tool you decide to use will get you organized, help you work through the exercise of why you are using social media, who is contributing content, what your goals are and how to measure them. In this session, we will review a few types of social media, examine some good and not-so-good applications and learn how to create a content plan.

The cost to attend each of these workshops is $59 for MCLS members or $119 for non-members. If you have multiple staff interested in attending, we also have a group viewing rate of $249 for MCLS members or $349 for non-members. Time is running out to register for these sessions so don’t delay!
