Like most busy professionals, your calendar is probably jam-packed, and your to-do list grows faster than you can cross anything off. So how can you make room for social media – and is it worth your time?
I'll help answer those questions in the New Directions in Social Media panel at Solutions 2013: National Conference on State and Local Housing Policy in Atlanta on September 18. I'm excited to discuss with my fellow panelists how you can incorporate social media into your tight schedule, so you and your organization can effectively engage with affordable housing and community development thought leaders and spread vital messages.
With housing tax credits, funding and programs continuously threatened by budget cuts and sequestration, it's increasingly important that we all be advocates for our cause. We'll talk about rallying support through Twitter, Facebook and other channels, and building key partnerships that further our mission of providing affordable homes and opportunity to all.
