Introducing the SMCDC 2013 Leadership Team!

welcome_aboard

Announcing the latest additions to the SMCDC Leadership team. Welcome aboard!

Social Media Club DC has been around for 5 years now, and in that time we have grown our group of local social media professionals to one of the largest in the nation. This is all due to the amazingly talented and hardworking team of volunteers that have put countless hours into our events, programming, and more often than not meme sharing. I’m proud to announce that today our Board of Directors have chosen quite a few new leadership team members to help continue to make SMCDC an great organization.

This year we had a record number of applicants, and appreciate the time each person spent completing them. If you didn’t make the team, you don’t need to feel left out though. We are launching a street team that will allow you to join us at specific events. We’ll make an announcement around that once our new teams get settled in.

What they didn’t know is that when they applied to join our team, we also asked a few random questions to see how the think… and also share their answers here. So without further ado, please welcome, connect with, and follow our newest leadership team members (this list does not include returning team members):

Sponsorship Team

Our sponsorship team is perhaps one of the most difficult. They deal with sponsors and partnerships.
