If you’re wondering how you can get involved in social media – look no further than the Social Media Club of Des Monies. The Board of Directors were announced on March 4, 2010 and we’ve been organizing community events ever since.

Social Media Club Des Moines is a local chapter of Social Media Club, an organization whose mission is to promote media literacy, promote standard technologies, encourage ethical behavior, and share best practices in social media.

The Des Moines chapter of Social Media Club seeks to bring together area technologists, business owners, educators, professionals, enthusiasts, and users of all vocations to provide a forum for education and collaboration on social media technology, platforms, and strategies.

Some great events coming up include:

Everyone LOVES ice cream.
Most everyone LOVES beer.

Imagine sucking down Olde Main’s Sudbuster Stout drizzled over a big ol’ scoop of cream kicking it on AJ’s on East Court’s patio. Pure #awesomeness.
