blogpotomac-rgbweb-thumb.jpg I am extraordinarily pleased and honoured to be participating in BlogPotomac 2008 this coming June, a social media best practices unconference organized by Geoff Livingston and Debbie Weil. Here’s the official blurb:

Sponsored by Livingston Communications, The Point, Viget Labs, WordBiz, Inc. and The Social Media Club, BlogPotomac seeks to provide a local “un-conference” on best marketing practices for the social media community in DC. Our goal is to provide advanced marketing insights beyond the average social media 101 event.

Which is something I am absolutely all over – being recently very inspired by David Churbuck’s (Lenovo’s social media guru) post lamenting the lack of more Social Media 201 examples.

Here’s the lineup:

  • Lionel Menchaca, digital media manager and chief blogger, Direct2Dell
  • Frank Gruber, community manager, AOL and author of Somewhat Frank
  • Kami Huyse, Communication Overtones on ethics
  • Author KD Paine on measurement
  • Jeremy Pepper from Pop! PR Jots on strategy
  • (I’ll be doing a session on integrating social media into your overall marketing/communications plan, and Josh Hallett will co-host with Debbie)

    Personally, I’m really looking forward to meeting people I’ve heard a lot about and getting to know others a little better. This should be a great event – the lineup is incredible; I am in some very good company!

    There are only 150 seats available, so register now if you’re planning to attend. Any profits from BlogPotomac will be donated to the Electronic Frontier Foundation.
