This forum will serve as Campaign Central for the upcoming Board vote that will run from
6/24-6/29 with winners being announced at the 7/8 SMCKC Breakfast.
This forum will serve as the primary location for the Board nominees to share a little bit about themselves, their experience and why they would like to serve on the SMCKC Board.
We also encourage SMCKC members to ask questions and/or provide supporting statements for their candidate of choice. We will distribute the voting link by end of day Friday, June 24.
Thank you for your support and participation during this very important process!
Your nominees- (In alphabetical order by last name)
Hi all! I'm Kate, an intern at emfluence. I worked in TV production before going back to graduate school, and have since switched to strategic communication. I am completing my thesis work for my masters in Mass Communication. I work part-time, leaving my time pretty flexible for extra endeavors. I try to keep my plate light so I can give my full attention. Right now I am also on the planning committee for DMDays, but I feel I have the time and resources to fill the Communications chair.
If I can answer any questions, I'm happy to. Just looking to get involved and help out!
@techguytom and @lqualls4444 were so kind as to nominate me for the Events chair. I'm still trying to figure out if that was a backhanded compliment :).
A month ago, Lisa put out a Twitter call for help planning the May Happy Hour. I had an idea, I ran with it, and had a pretty good time. Hopefully those of you who showed up did as well. I'm currently in the midst of putting together the July Happy Hour. I've been part of the SMCKC for a couple years now, and I've enjoyed the people I've met, the exposure to new ideas, and the low-key, collegial nature of the group.
I enjoy throwing parties and setting up events, so I guess that works out well. I'd like to see programming become increasingly contextual, meaning talking not just "SOCIAL MEDIA-YAY!!" but how social media fits into larger cultural trends and events, whether it be marketing, community development, entrepreneurship, or something else--which seems to be the direction we're headed anyway.
Happy to answer any questions anyone has. I'm sure Emily would do a bang-up job as well.
