Social Media Surgery Clinics

In desperate need of some social media triage? Get some fast first aid at one of our new social media clinics.

Every month, the Chamber hosts Social Media Surgery Clinics. Learn more about specific topics as well as discuss particular social media challenges in a relaxed setting. The experts (aka "surgeons") are helpful volunteers who have extensive knowledge and provide free advice to those in need of assistance.

Each clinic begins with a brief presentation on a specific topic, along with a Q&A.  Participants can bring in their laptops (and lunch, if they wish).

Speak to experts and get tips!  

All those who attend will have an opportunity to have a one-on-one Q&A with the expert. The “surgeons” will help you tackle your social media challenges and teach YOU how to resolve them.

Check out the list of upcoming topics and get more details.

 


Tech Triage

Not sure why your technology is acting the way it is? Frustrated because your technology expectations are exceeding your needs? Wonder how you can get more out of your technology including your computers, tablets, smart phones, network and cloud systems? What scams should you watch out for?

We’ll identify technology puddles so you can avoid them.

Each month we’ll start with a 10-minute presentation on a tech topic, Q&A, then follow that an opportunity for one-on-one Q&A with our expert.
