An exclusive, intimate event for the people who lead their SocialMedia.org memberships.

This is an inspiring, lightly structured meetup for those who have the responsibility of leading their social media teams at the world’s greatest brands.

We’re all about bringing leaders together for deep conversations, and for this event, we’re focusing on the highest level of social media leaders for in-depth conversations on the unique leadership challenges you face.

This is different from the Member Meeting experience. It’s more exclusive, completely private, and conversation-focused. Members will pick topics and lead discussions in a casual format designed to maximize connections and conversations.

Special Content
Unconferences, leadership development, and inspirational guest thought-leaders.

Deep Conversations
Dig into leadership issues at a higher level in a more relaxed, casual structure.

Build Connections
Make long-term friendships with people leading social media teams just like you.

Private
100% confidential so everyone is comfortable sharing openly and honestly.

Two days of great conversations with other leaders who get you, what you do, and the opportunities and challenges you face.

In two inspiring and fun days, you’ll connect with the people leading social media (and their SocialMedia.org memberships) at big brands just like you.

We’ll be more focused on leadership topics at this meeting, and we’ll do it on a wide range of formats:

  • Members will lead discussions on major topics we’ll announce ahead of time. (We’ll reach out in the weeks leading up to the event to invite you to lead a discussion.)
  • We’ll have special guests leading fun, experiential breaks.
  • We’ll have unconferences where we’ll pick topics on the fly based on what matters most in the moment.

You’ll build some of the best connections and friendships you’ll ever make in this business.

We’re bringing together the leaders at the very top of the world’s biggest social media programs, and then we’ll do what we always do: Make it really easy for you to have great conversations and build relationships. We’re intentionally keeping our schedule lighter and more free-flowing than typical Member Meetings. We’re building in extra time for you to connect with peers in small groups and one-on-one settings. You’ll leave with new friends (and stronger connections with longtime ones) who you can count on for advice and support. We all know leading social media can be a tough, lonely job — but as a member of this family, you don’t have to go it alone.

This is the most exclusive meeting of social media leaders anywhere.

It’s not just vendor-free, it’s not just social media leaders — it’s exclusively for SocialMedia.org Board Chairs. You’ll be surrounded by people who have your job, at the very top of their respective social media programs. As the head of your social media program, the issues you face are different. This is that incredibly rare opportunity to dig into those challenges with your peers. Frankly, there’s just no other opportunity like this.
