This isn’t a typical conference. This is where you get together with members to have conversations you can’t have anywhere else.

This is an exclusive, private meeting for SocialMedia.org members — no vendors, no sponsors, and no outsiders. It’s part strategic planning, part deep learning, and part family reunion.

This isn’t a conference, it’s a meeting that helps you with the confidence and credibility you need to lead a great social media program.

You’ll collaborate with people like you, in total confidence.

There are certain things you can only talk about in total confidence with people like you, with jobs like yours (and problems like yours), at companies like yours. That’s what our community is focused on, and Member Meetings are the pinnacle of that experience.

Members only — social media leaders at big brands.

Member Meetings are exclusively for SocialMedia.org members only. Everyone in the room will be someone who runs social media at a major brand. They’ve been there, done that — and they’re ready to help.

100% confidential and off the record.

Everyone will have signed a confidentiality agreement, so you can trust them with the hard questions. There’s no blogging, no filming, and no recording. You’ll dig into the real issues that never get discussed on panels, in analyst reports, or even back at the office.

Every conversation is valuable, because you’re picking the topics and participating in the conversations that are most relevant to you.

You decide what we talk about.

If you’re going to spend your time and money going to a conference, you shouldn’t have to listen to irrelevant panels chosen by a meeting planner or sponsor. You’ll pick the Show & Tell talks that interest you, you’ll suggest topics for the group to discuss, and you’ll always have options of which conversations to join.

Bring a list of what you’re working on and see just how much this community can help you.

You can always go to a conference. This is that rare chance to be with your family.

As a social media leader, you’ve got a tough, important job. And so much of that job is dedicated to helping everyone else in the business and on your team.

This is a meeting for you and leaders like you. There’s a level of comfort and support you get when you know everyone in the room understands you, has the same job, and experiences the same struggles. It’s so much more relaxed, safe, and open. People help you, and you help them.

It’s supportive and empowering. You’ll love it.

Peer-to-Peer.
Members share ideas, answers, and advice. Get expert opinions from people who’ve been there, done that.

Guest speakers, panels, and keynotes.
Polished presentations can be great, but you can get those anywhere (often, without leaving the office since they’re recorded).
