Event Spotlight: Government Social Media Conference (GSMCon) + Practitioner Webinar

Blog   /   Social

Constituents have become sophisticated social citizens who expect timely communications and answers to their inquiries from their local and state governments on social media. Hootsuite enterprise customer Greg Licamele, Director of External Communications at Fairfax County, who leads the county’s social media presence, noted during a recent Hootsuite webinar that “we can no longer afford to work at the speed of government. We must remain relevant to the people we serve.”

Hootsuite Enterprise seeks to help governments strike the right balance between governance and empowerment. The aim is to increase efficiencies on social media and enhance collaboration within a safe and secure publishing environment. This ultimately enables agencies to engage on social and better serve constituents.

On April 29 – May 1, the Hootsuite team will be attending The Government Social Media Conference and Expo (GSMCon) in Reno, Nevada. GSMCon is the only major social media conference specifically for U.S. city, county, and state government agencies. This first annual conference will bring together a unique audience of social media managers, communicators, elected officials, webmasters, and law enforcement.

  • Get answers to your social media questions

Hootsuite’s VP of Enterprise strategy, Rob Begg, will be facilitating a keynote session on the “5 Social Trends that Matter for Government”. Attendees will learn how to think like media—not media relations—and take advantage of more meaningful social measurement.

If you are a social media practitioner, learn how to embrace social media solutions and strategies for quickly and efficiently posting and moderating content. Ben Cathers, Senior Strategic Solutions Consultant at Hootsuite, recently joined social media government influencer and GSMCon Conference Director, Kristy Dalton, to deliver a practical webinar for social media practitioners on time saving strategies like bulk scheduling content.
