It’s an election year and Social Media Club of Madison wants to get in the game!  We are applying to be a full chapter of Social Media Club. That means we have raised the necessary $1000 in funds and in professional membership fees to do so.

As part of the suggested Bylaws offered by the National Social Media Club, Social Media Club of Madison (MadisonSMC)  must hold an election for a 2012 Board. In order to do so, we must have a call for nominations for the positions open. And this is it!  Our official chapter application is now in the mail to the national Social Media Club leader Kristie Wells.

Let’s nominate
