I am excited to announce the new 2018 Social Media Club LA (SMCLA) Board of Directors! SMCLA is a local chapter of a global non-profit that’s dedicated to producing monthly networking events and panels to promote digital literacy and discuss trends in this ever-changing landscape of social media.

Last year was a big year for our Los Angeles chapter. Our membership base grew by 3x in 2017, making SMCLA the largest Social Media Club chapter in the United States! Thank you to everyone who helped make this happen. SMCLA members enjoy attending our events for free along with many other perks. If you are interested in becoming a member, you can learn more about Membership here.

This year we have a wonderful group of Board of Directors, and I couldn’t be more excited. Our Board is 100% volunteer-based and comprised of social media, PR, communications, and marketing professionals who have a passion for sharing knowledge, networking, and producing great events.

We have big plans for 2018, and our goal is to provide valuable events to our Los Angeles social media community that leave you with actionable takeaways and insights. Here are some key dates to be on the lookout for in this first quarter:

February 26th – “Thriving in Facebook’s Friends and Family World”
March 19th – To Be Announced. Save the date!

Special thanks to General Assembly for continuing to be such a great venue partner for us and all of our sponsors who provide wonderful food and beverages at each of our events. Our events are not possible with the help of the Board of Directors, partners, and sponsors and we are so grateful.

I look forward to seeing you at an upcoming event!
