Here at ELGL, it’s no secret that we’re huge advocates for local governments to have a healthy and robust online presence. (In fact, just last night, the ELGL management team was 100% perplexed by an unnamed Oregon city that lists fax numbers – but not email addresses – on their city web page).
To recognize and celebrate communities that are using social media well, we’ve created a new column series titled “Social Media Superstars.” From time to time, ELGL member Carrie Ann Taylor (you may know her on Twitter as @OneCopaceticCat) will identify an organization that is using online tools exceptionally well. Using Storify, she’ll walk us through the ways that social media is helping the organization connect, communicate and educate.
Carrie Ann is a budding local government professional, currently serving as the Digital Media Manager for Mayor Pro Tem Barnes of the City of Charlotte NC, and Operations Manager for an international nonprofit. She is a devoted social media advocate and finds great pleasure in collaborating with the greater community to educate, inform and inspire.
So, cross your fingers and keep your eyes peeled for future installments of Social Media Superstars – and maybe, just maybe, you’ll be picked for this exclusive and important award!
Winners will receive a coveted “Social Media Superstar” plaque and unique recognition on ELGL.org and our affiliated social media sites. If you’ve ever wanted to know which local governments are doing online communications “right,” then watch this column for a step-by-step guide on how to be a social media superstar!
