The Social Media Club Boston wouldn't be possible without the hard work of several volunteers. The folks below help make all of these events possible. Terms are one-year, though many folks stay on for additional terms.

At the heart of the Social Media Club is great interactive events. The Programming Director manages all aspects of the activity calendar for the Boston club. This person is responsible for:

  • Coordinating with the Partnership Director to secure speakers and identify venues for each event

  • Updating the wiki with all new program information
  • Hand off event program to Promotions Director for publicity and Production Director for planning and coordination of event

Our activities wouldn't be possible without partners. We partner with other businesses and organizations to find topics, speakers and venues for future activities. The Partnership Director manages the relationships with the national Social Media Club parent organization, other important social media organizations (both national and local), as well as with local businesses and organizations interested in sponsoring or hosting upcoming activities.
