March 7, 2009 (by Roxanne Darling)

We had a great launch meeting last night!  More news to come, however for now Kelly Mitchell is taking the reins, Tess Staadecker is handling programs, and Roxanne Darling is serving as the lead member with paid status.

We set the next meeting for Friday, April 10th and are thinking about the second Friday as our standing date. ING Cafe has offered the continued use of their space. Time is looking like 5:00 - 6:30 pm, with networking from 5-5:30 and the formal program starting promptly at 5:30 pm. We'll try this out for a while and see how it goes; your input is welcome.

Notes from the Meeting:

Thank you to everyone who came to this meeting - the energy was wonderful and the facility very conducive to talking and geeking. (Thanks again Cleo from ING Cafe.) 

We will be getting communication channels started shortly and really looking forward to the launch of the new SMC web site!

About the Social Media Club

* Social Media Club (SMC) is registering for non-profit status and offers several membership options, including a free, "Open" member.
* There must be at least one paying member to launch a chapter. (Roxanne Darling and Shane Robinson have a company membership under Bare Feet Studios; check.)
* SMC will be launching a major new membership website later this month. Each chapter will have its own area for blogging, events, etc and each member will have a unique login, and can designate their home chapter.
* There are currently about 300 paid members and over 1500 total members, with chapters all around the world.
* Local chapters have a lot of leeway in determining their activities and management.
* 10% of membership dues will be given back to the chapter to help cover operational expenses.
* The parent organization will be looking for sponsors and will share a portion of that with the chapters; chapters are able to get their own sponsors as well.

The Hawaii Chapter

* Close to 50 people attended from multiple disciplines.
* Kelly Mitchell has agreed to take the leadership position and Tess Staadecker has agreed to coordinate programs, starting with the next few months as we get ourselves organized.
* ING Cafe has agreed to host our meetings.
* Tess suggested we invite a local non-profit org to be a working case study for our group, where we can help them develop and implement a social media strategy over a 6-12 month term. People loved that idea.
* Each meeting will feature a demo or case study; we will be looking at ways to poll the group and manage this. There is so much to learn!
* Roxanne gave a short, 15-minute presentation, The Social Web Changes "Everything"
* Roxanne also brought along some books to share; several were "checked out" and we are hoping some coder might come up with a library that will show the books, who has them, and who might want it next.
* The live streaming did not (Flash errors in the browser) but we are hoping that will work next time.
* We are using these tags: #SMCH, socialmediaclub, socialmediaclubhawaii, INGcafe - let's add #SMCHI as Shane had set up that as a Twitter account some time ago, and it is more specific than SMCH.

Special thanks to Cleota Brown for offering the space to us. If you haven't been here yet, I think you will be excited. The space is open, modern, there are low cost food and drink items, and you can learn about their online banking. I found it a very interesting story on the company and its founder.



Please email me (roxanne @barefeetstudios.com) if you want to be notified. It is open to everyone and let me say in advance I appreciate your help in spreading the word!  Aloha, Roxanne Darling
