Event type: Social Media Network

This networking group is for CharityComms members working as social media leads in UK charities and not-for-profits.

This networking group looks to address a gap for strategic and professional development of social media leads working in charities and not-for-profit organisations.

Each meeting will offer a safe space for members to chat about working in charity social media, with the focus of discussions on strategy-led topics. This is a space to learn together and share best practice, challenges, successes and inspiration with your peers.

Who can attend?
Attending the Social Media Network events is free and exclusive to CharityComms organisational and individual members (charities only).

These events are for professionals who have strategic social media as the core function of their role (at least 50%) working in charities.

About the events
The group will meet four times a year to discuss working in charity social media, with the focus of discussions on strategy-led topics.

The events will be focused on discussions and peer-to-peer sharing. There will also be plenty of time for networking.
