Social Media Club New York




(Back to the New York page)


The Social Media Club New York Area is looking for help shaping the future of social media in New York. We have identified four roles that we needed support filling. These four people form the leadership team of the New York group. If you'd be interested in helping one of them, please send an email to kristiewells [at] gmail [dot] com. And your input on these roles is welcome--as with all the Social Media Club Wiki pages, this one is editable too (the password is above, feel free to add your comments or suggestions below).


Programming Director - Howard Greenstein




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

  • Developing and managing the schedule of events, including regular (monthly) public meetings and planning meetings
  • Identifying topics for upcoming events
  • Coordinating with the Partnership Director to secure speakers and identify venues for each event
  • Securing speaker bios
  • Preparing the event program for each public event, including agenda, directions and other special instructions

Our activities wouldn't be possible without partners. We partner with other businesses and organizations to find topics, speakers and venues for future activities.

Promotion is key to the ultimate success of our organization--and the earlier the better! This person is reponsible for:

  • Managing the Social Media Club New York web pages, including the blog, wiki, forums and email list

  • Promoting future events through all the above-named channels
  • Publicizing future events through online and traditional channels
