Prepare for Our Twitter Workshop on October 8!

Twitter IconThis year Greater Des Moines AWC is expanding our education mission with a Twitter Workshop on Wednesday, October 8 from 2:30 – 4:30pm at the Des Moines Social Club! AWC is your go-to organization for keeping up with rapidly changing communications technology. Too often we get caught up in our daily work grind and we lose sight of what is going on around us. Maybe you think you don’t need social media, but it is a driving force in our field and you need to explore it to keep your professional skills up to date.

Our Twitter workshop will explain the basics of how and why to tweet and we’ll participate in a live Twitter chat. We may even have some participation in our chat from AWC National board members.

Before you come to the workshop, please be sure to create your Twitter account and bring your mobile device with you. Laptops are best. Tablets and smart phones will work also. Be sure you have Twitter apps installed!

Watch for our email announcement for registration information. If you don’t already receive our emails, you can sign up on our homepage.

While you are waiting for the workshop, check out:

Follow @AWCDSM on Twitter and join us for #AWCchat on Thursdays from 11:30 – 12:30 Central.

Twitter Chat August 21 – Tooting Our Own Horns

It’s really hard for women to toot their own horn, while it comes naturally for most men. Why is that?

On August 21 our guest host on AWC Chat will be Peggy Klaus the author of BRAG! The Art of Tooting Your Own Horn Without Blowing It. You may remember that Lori Day spoke to us on this topic at our annual networking event a couple of years ago. It will be interesting to see what Peggy Klaus has to say.

Tune in to #awcchat on Twitter from 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. CDT on Thursday, August 21 to join in the discussion!
