Do you #genchat? FGS does and we are proud to join host Jen Baldwin for her “Focus on Societies” series of chats beginning this month. As our member societies continue to expand their social media efforts to reach an increasingly tech savvy audience, collaborative events like #genchat offer high visibility opportunities for community engagement. Baldwin herself says it best:
“#genchat really is an ideal concept for societies to gain attention and followers on Twitter. The conversational tone of the chats allows for free-flowing input and gives organizations a chance to showcase their collections and member benefits.”
Reach a dedicated group of highly engaged genealogists as they discuss what their home societies do well or where they need to improve. Topics are specifically designed to give societies a chance to share their success, inspire others and learn from the community:
July 31st: Society Focus: Creative Programming
Is your society offering unique programming with great response? Want to learn from societies that are?
August 14th: Need research details? Get local!
Let the genealogy community know how your society can support their research goals. And maybe discover a need for services you could be offering.
September 11th: Society Focus: Technology
Share with the community how your society is successfully using tech to improve society management and support your members.
