Social Media Committee

Social media has exploded. According to a recent ANA study, 89% of marketers are now using social media to reach their customers-leaping from 20% just a few years ago. Despite this rapid growth, marketers have many questions and their issues include measurement, agency selection, internal organizational structure, and relinquishing control to the consumer while trying to influence the dialogue

The Social Media Committee is for members who lead social media marketing and/or initiatives at their organizations. We will drive industry thought leadership, share best practices and expertise, and facilitate discussion and topics to inform better decision making. The committee will provide a forum for members to elevate themselves and their respective organizations via interaction with their peers as well as an outside perspective from invited guests.  

This committee helps program the annual ANA Digital & Social Media Conference, next planned for July 13-15, 2014 at St. Regis Monarch Beach, Dana Point, CA. Click here for more information.

  • Internal Organizational Structure
  • Different Roles of Social Media including Customer Service, Brand/Product Awareness, Fundraising, Legal/Human Resources, etc.
