Lawrence, KS Social Media Club 


We're getting ready to launch a new chapter of the Social Media Cub in Lawrence, KS.


Our Facebook page is located here. Our Twitter account is @smclawrence.  If you're interested in getting involved or being part of the leadership team, please contact Ben Smith at benasmith71@gmail.com.


Our schedule of events is below. Locations, hosts/sponsors and topics will be listed as they become available. All events are FREE, unless otherwise stated. As agendas become available, we'll add links to them from this page (click on the date). Thanks to our sponsors, and to everyone on the Leadership team for their hard work to make this schedule possible! 




We'll be kicking off with a weekly Wednesday morning get together in Downtown Lawrence.  An informal networking event, which we hope will lead to some interesting discussions and grow to include more formal presentations and learning opportunities.


We'll meet each Wednesday from 7:30am to 8:30 am each Wednesday at the Mirth Cafe, located at 745 New Hampshire Street in downtown Lawrence, KS.  We live stream the meeting via this link.


NOTE: Please tag all blogs, podcasts, vlogs, and photos with #smclk.
