It is perhaps not wise for the chair of the Social Media Committee to admit to anything less than complete confidence in using social media, so let’s keep it to ourselves. Between you and me, I have a passingly adequate skill set. I know enough to fake it, until my ineptness outs me.

My grandmother would be aghast that I am about to reveal my age, so if you run into a 90-year-old retiree in Florida who resembles me, keep it to yourself: (cue the whisper) I’m in my 40’s. Members who like me squint into the mirror, noting that we have both a growing population of silvery hairs and an inability to see them, will possibly relate to my media habits. I love seeing baby pictures, even the occasional cat, and enjoy keeping up with family and friends. Some of us promote businesses or ourselves via social media. However, I have come to find that as the social media sandwich generation, my usage is completely unlike those both older and younger. We are excited to offer outreach to all, no matter what your comfort and familiarity with social media.

The Social Media Committee is committed to using our platforms to draw people closer and forge a sense of connection. To that end, we have some fantastic new offerings. We are now on multiple media! Look for us on Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, and Twitter. If you are using any of those platforms, please connect. Here’s a link to our website where you will find links to our various social media profiles in the top right corner:

We’re working with a wonderful social media consultant (see the Social Media Committee Board Report for an introduction), who is helping us to amplify our voice.

For those who identify as social media-hesitant, we have offerings for you! Stay tuned for a helpful video that will explain some of the privacy settings on social media, as well as an upcoming course on social media, privacy, and ethics.

As always, let us know how we can best serve you! Please write to:
