Hey SocialToaster fans!

Now that we’re on the other side of Labor Day, we’ve hit the end of summer. And I couldn’t be more excited.

On September 26th (just 23 more days!) I’ll be speaking at the 2019 Social Media Conference on Alumni Engagement (SMCAE). While it’s great to be able to speak at the conference and share my ideas, I’m really excited to be an attendee of the conference. It’s not often that you get to learn engagement techniques first-hand from industry professionals from across the nation.

The SMCAE 2019 lineup promises to be something really special because each speaker and panelist is someone who possesses strategic insight into alumni or social media engagement.

For example, I’m excited to see what Heather Locke Green, from the University of Texas at San Antonio, has in store for us. She’ll be presenting her case study, “Using Bots to Engage Alumni: A Taylor Swift Case Study”. There is a lot of attention on bots right now, and I think we’ve barely scratched the surface in terms of their use for alumni engagement, so it will be interesting to hear how it went for UTSA.

We’ll also have Auriel Buchanan from Miami University at SMCAE. She is an expert on digital fundraising, so I am really looking forward to picking her brain on all things social media. If you know what she’s done with Miami University’s fan advocacy Mbassidor program, you’re going to be glad to have this chance.

SMCAE 2019 is going to be a learning and networking experience you can’t replicate.

If you can make it to Baltimore on September 26, join us at the 2019 Social Media Conference on Alumni Engagement, held at the beautiful and prestigious Johns Hopkins University. Tickets are still available at www.SMCAE2019.com/tickets, so reserve your seat now.
