After four years of SMBNH, I’m so pleased to announce our new partnership with New Hampshire Public Radio. They will be hosting us in Studio D each month throughout 2013. We feel that this partnership brings the educational basis of SMBNH to the forefront, and look forward to the next year!
We’ll be sending out an event link for this event and the rest of the year tomorrow. The firm schedule of events for 2013, hosted by NHPR, is as follows:
We’re also putting out a call for speakers.
UDATE: As many of you know – Magnitude Media relocated in 2013. We have turned the keys of this wonderful thing we started over to some smart, capable folks at Seacoast Social Media. They are now running the existing @SMBNH Twitter and the SMBNH Facebook group, and are continuing the partnership with NHPR. Look forward to quality content and networking from them at this event and their other events!
This month’s Social Media Breakfast is brought to you by Magnitude Media, DimDim and the Manchester City Library.
The Manchester City Library has been a cultural treasure to Manchester and New Hampshire since 1854. In his inaugural address that year, Mayor elect Frederick Smyth proposed the establishment of a free public library for all of Manchester’s citizens. During the previous decade, the Manchester Athenaeum had been used and enjoyed by its members. The Manchester Athenaeum collection was officially transferred to the city on September 6, 1854, bringing to life Mayor Smyth’s dream of a Manchester City Library. (read more history here) The Manchester City Library isn’t stuck in its past, however. It has a thriving technological component, highlighting social media through its blog, Twitter, Facebook, Flickr photos, and more.
Thank you to Lichen Rancourt who helped facilitate the Manchester City Library sponsorship for us!
Location: Manchester City Library Auditorium
Theme for the sixth Social Media Breakfast: Community
The sixth Social Media Breakfast NH (hashtag #smbnh) will be all about topics related to Community. In this struggling economy and shifting paradigm we need to be working together to be more successful and better weather the storm. We should be pulling in all aspects of technology, new media, old media and social media to succeed. This meeting will help us lay the foundation for a richer, better education, tech and new media community in NH.
In addition to myself, who will be your host and MC for the morning, you will have three speakers giving three brief presentations on topics relating to the theme for the morning.
• Opening Remarks by Leslie Poston, Magnitude Media
• Welcome Remarks by Lichen Rancourt from the library
• Kevin Micalizzi, Community Manager for DimDim, on Simple Rules for Great Community Management
• Rachel Happe, Co-Founder of The Community Roundtable, on Eight Competencies to Socializing Your Organization
• Heidi Duncanson, Marketing Director at the Children’s Museum of NH, will share tips for building community on a shoestring
This is going to be a great breakfast!
