This weekend I have the opportunity to present with my ex-workspouse but forever friend @starfocus on how organizations integrate and use social networking to help promote and message. I'm extremely lucky to have been asked and honored to be part of this amazing group of people who man this army to protect and restore the Bay.
Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay is working with some broad and diverse organizations that are focused on messaging the education of restoration science and action to the Chesapeake region. For nearly 40 years the Alliance has spearheaded innovative ways to engage people and groups to restore the Chesapeake Bay and its rivers. And if you noticed what happened with the run off from recent torental storms, the rivers and tribs are having a negative impact on the bay this season making the need to engage and message for cleaner filtering that much more important.
The NWF MidAtlantic office has been a key partner in this group - and show casing how NWF has utilized the various tools and methods to engage will be a delight to talk about with those who are attending the three day forum.
This is also my first time visiting Shepherdstown, WV so besides hanging with some of my fave buds I get to see some amazing country in my own backyard. http://bit.ly/nLfzPg
Saturday morning I may be in need of an intravenous drip of caffeine but I'm betting my twitter stream will be getting a workout as we talk and train this dedicated army who are committed to saving the bay! Keep an eye out for some creative hashtags - we need to work on something smaller, a little help D?
