The summit includes collaborative sessions on Performance Metrics, breakout groups, and in-depth case studies from the space agency and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence.
The autumn #SocialGov Summit is the next in a series of events for the new Federal Social Media Community of Practice, a new objective-focused solver community dedicated to identifying and developing solutions to shared needs among agencies. Our last event reached capacity and waitlisted in less than a week, so if you a Fed handling Social Media management, budget or Legal, register today and make sure your agency is there.
Participants in the #SocialGov Summit are from mission areas across government, including healthcare, intelligence, defense, science and research, and from all-star teams within agencies to one-deep shops driving innovation. This diverse group will come together again to discuss:
- How federal agencies can better measure and report social media performance, improvement of citizen services, and cost savings.
- How agencies like NASA and ODNI use social media to impact their missions.
- What emerging trends may affect our shared mission goals, and what solutions we can develop to meet them.
The first event, Federal Social Media Camp, attracted more than 100 government social media practitioners from more than 20 agencies, including staff appearances from Twitter, Facebook and Google — capped by announcement of Google+’s new fed-friendly Terms of Service agreement.
Soon we were invited to introduce the Social Media Community of Practice to the Department of Defense All-Services Social Media Conference. Here, dozens of social media specialists from the defense community came together to find ways in which their community can benefit from and contribute to all agencies’ efforts to improve citizen engagement.
The September summit promises to have more space (literally, as it is NASA), and more opportunities to meet colleagues and discuss the issues critical to your mission. Since there are other events and observances that week, we will broadcast sessions from NASA and ODNI online for later viewing.
We look forward to continuing advancing federal-wide social media initiatives, and hope to see you at NASA.
