#SHRMChat Goes Live

Last night was an exciting evening at least for about 24 people that I know from twitter.  Now I have met many of these folks face to face, but not all of them.  The reason last night was exciting is because it was the first night of #SHRMChat.   This was and will be an on-line chat on twitter.  This is the brain child of our good friend Joan Ginsberg.

Joan wanted to do something to bring together some of the most active and enthusiastic social media users who are at the forefront of using social media on behalf of their SHRM organization, be it a state council or chapter.  Well she did it.  Joan pushed it and got it out of the gate; so kudos to her!  The plan is to do this chat monthly on the second Tuesday of the month at 8 p.m. Eastern.  The hashtag is #SHRMChat.

I could not get a good tweet count, as it appears that tweet cloud has gone inactive.  Looking at the tweet reach stats we see we had 24 participants on the hashtag.

There were some interesting ideas thrown out during the chat.  Perhaps we could take action on some of these and move the ball forward.   If you are involved in any SHRM organization and you are trying to move the organization forward with social media then you should plan to participate in the next chat on December 13th at 8 p.m. EST.  

Those of us at the SHRM Leadership Conference will talk this up, but we need more support so please join in next month.

One last thing - THANKS JOAN!

  1. Thanks for posting this, Dave. I can't thank everyone enough for their time and generous help with getting this chat off the ground. I do know that if we all continue to work together, our chapters - and HR - will benefit immensely.

  2. Joan thanks for putting this together, you were the one who got this chat out of the gate! Kudos!
