Join us for a very special Member Meeting.

SocialMedia.org Member Meetings are the longest-running series of meetings for social media leaders at the world’s greatest brands. Over 12 years, 19 cities, 6,330 attendees, 800 Show & Tell talks, and 2,400 unconference discussions — our members have built Member Meetings into the gathering for people leading enterprise social media.

At Member Meeting 50, we’ll celebrate this incredible milestone. We’ll have 10 Show & Tell talks, 12 member-led discussions, and 16 peer-to-peer unconference discussions — plus extra fun and social activities.

Whether you’ve been to 15 meetings or this will be your very first one, we hope you can join us for this incredible series of conversations with senior social media leaders.

Exclusively for social media leaders at major companies. No vendors, no selling. (Yes, really.)

This is the meeting for people leading the programs. Everyone in the room will be a senior decision maker. You’ll be talking with people who actually run their program, with experience and knowledge to share.

You’ll have leadership conversations you can’t experience anywhere else.

We talk about the things that keep you up at night: internal management issues, vendors, unprecedented topics, crisis response, and leadership strategies.

(We don’t cover the topics you get from other sources — the tactical or basic “how-to” concepts.)

Everything is facilitated and peer-to-peer.

That means better conversations and more meaningful connections. The people at this meeting have been there, done that, and are willing to share the real stories of what worked and what didn’t.

You won’t hear canned presentations, vendor pitches, or polished stuff for the stage. The conversations at this meeting are much more valuable.

Leave inspired, energized, and better prepared to lead your program.

What’s special about Member Meetings

1. Conversations that Matter

We’ll talk about the important issues that you’re facing as a social media leader. Bring the tough problems you’re trying to solve and the questions you can’t ask anywhere else.

2. Confidential, Off the Record, and Members Only

No vendors, no agencies, and no sponsors. Every conversation is completely confidential (no recording, blogging, etc.), and every participant is a social media leader at a major brand.

3. It’s Not a Conference, It’s a Discussion

Member Meetings are designed for high-value conversations that will help you be a better social media leader. There are no panels, keynotes, sponsors, or other distractions.

What’s Happening at This Member Meeting

We’ll have four kinds of incredible conversations:

Unconferences
Member-chosen, member-led peer-to-peer discussions on the hottest issues of the moment.

Show & Tells
Members share what they’re working on in casual, behind-the-scenes talks.

Member-Led Discussions
Deep-dive conversations on pre-selected topics from your fellow members.

Meal Discussions
Meals aren’t just breaks — they’re formal parts of the program where some of the best conversations happen.

Who can attend

1. Registration is Not Open to the Public

This meeting is private, off-the-record, and exclusively for social media leaders at major brands. All registrations are reviewed, and everyone will have signed a confidentiality agreement.

2. Tuesday is Members and Invited Guests Only

The first day is off the record, but some prospective members will be joining us. They’ll leave when our private member dinner starts that evening.

3. Wednesday is Members Only

Everyone in the room will be a SocialMedia.org member. Members, if you’re hoping to send someone that isn’t on your roster yet, they need to be approved at least two weeks before the meeting. Your friendly Community Manager can help.
