Social Media Club Los Angeles Kicks Off The New Year At The Craftsman

The networking and picture taking opportunities were plentiful at The Craftsman (SMCLA_018-1024x685@TheCraftsManSM), a retro-style beachside lounge in Santa Monica. That’s because it was the location of Social Media Club Los Angeles’ Happy Hour on Jan. 21, when @SMC_LA officially kicked off the new year. A photo booth proved to be a popular Happy Hour attraction, in addition to the excellent  food & drinks at The Craftsman. 

Newly elected SMCLA President Madeline Wright introduced the 2014 slate of board members who were on hand to greet both SMCLA members and non-members alike.   Victor Garcia, yours truly, gave one of the shortest speeches in Social Media Club Los Angeles history with “Join SMCLA!” after he was introduced. Sound advice, though, for sure, given the long list of member benefits. For more information on joining SMCLA email us at losangeles@socialmediaclub.org.

SAVE THE DATE: Our next event is “Ask The Executive Recruiters” Feb. 18 at the Regus/Yahoo Center in Santa Monica.

Introducing Social Media Club Los Angeles’ 2014 Board of Directors!

On January 7th, the members of Social Media Club Los Angeles (SMCLA) elected 22 officers to its Board of Directors for the 2014 term.

Social Media Club Los Angeles strives to produce monthly programming that educates, engages and energizes the Los Angeles area social media community. 2013 was an incredible year for our organization both in terms of programming and community involvement.  It was the first year we had a formal board of directors and we were able to lay the groundwork necessary to produce an ongoing range of social programs to meet the changing needs of our community members.

It has been an honor serving as SMCLA’s President and excited to continue on overseeing membership for both the national board and our own chapter’s. I am so proud of the accomplishments of our 2013 board, and look forward to surpassing their success in 2014 with a profoundly skilled team lead by my friend and social media expert, Madeline Wright.
