Social Media Club of Minnesota


Why Social Media Club - Minnesota?



"Be like the Internet: Collaborative, Disruptive, Networked" - Scott Hirsch


The idea of Social Media Club is to have smaller round table discussions on the future of social media and how it relates to our world, business, or organization. Minnesota is full of individuals and existing organizations who are highly fluent in the conversation of community. Let's chat on engagement, vendors, best practices, ethics, regulation, adoption, and community management. SMC is just a way to discuss these topics with existing groups in the Twin Cities. Think of it as a break out session at a trade show.


We look forward to integrating future activities with MIMA, Social Media Breakfast Club Minneapolis, and Twin Cities Interactive Community. The idea of SMC Minnesota is to connect our local conversations with the other chapters and groups in the US including SFO, Boston, Austin, and DC. With such great talent and organizations here in Minnesota, bringing alignment is part of the goal of SMC of Minnesota. More details of organizing committee are being formed to develop the Minneapolis Social Media Club. 



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.

Hello, I am interested in social media for the non profit sector. I became a member of the Minneapolis chapter of Social Media Club Wiki and would like to volunteer for the same.
