On February 7, 2013 I will be presenting on the records management implications of social media at the upcoming 3rd annual Winter Summit of the Canadian Society of Association Executives (Trillium Chapter). For more information you can view the conference brochure or visit the CSAE chapter website.
The Records and Information Management Implications of Social Media
Many associations are exploring or using social media (e.g. blogs, social networks such as Facebook, etc.) to support their member recruitment and retention strategies. This presentation will provide an overview of social media technologies: their strengths, weaknesses and potential uses.
It will also identify the records and information management (RIM) implications of social media technologies by answering such questions as, “What information can (or should) an association communicate via social media?”, “Is such information an association record?”, “How long should the information be kept?” and “How can the information be accessed if/when needed in the future?”
Attend this session to learn how to incorporate RIM best practices in your association’s plans for managing information communicated via social media.
