Social media: failure or future? March 28 evening event at the Denver Press Club

    As PR practitioners, we must stay involved with the latest trends and practices involving communications. Whether we post, tweet, snap, pin or chat, social media offers us a variety of ways to reach our communities.

    And yet, what are the implications for the public when social media is omnipresent, technology is at our fingertips and location doesn’t matter? How do members of the media as well as PR practitioners ensure that the 24-hour news cycle is grounded in ethical communications standards?

    On March 28, after you’ve learned about, engaged and discussed social media — its practices, challenges and opportunities at the PRSA luncheon  — join us that same evening at the Denver Press Club for the second edition of Social Perspectives: Conversation, Debate and Understanding.

    The Denver Post’s social media guru Dan Petty along with Republican commentator and Compass Colorado’s Kelly Maher and Democratic voice and ProgressNow’s Ian Silveri will take their viewpoints — outlined in the preceding Sunday Denver Post — and lead a lively discussion on the power of social media in politics today. Members of the media, PRSA and the public will be there to chime in. This is a great opportunity to listen, debate, grab a beer and connect without pitching!

    Social Perspectives: Conversation, Debate and Understanding is a free series that picks up where the editorial pages leave off — bringing together key players and prominent perspectives on social and political issues that lawmakers are discussing, the media is covering and Coloradans are consuming in the press. The events are free and open to the public. A cash bar and appetizers will be available. Ample street parking is located nearby.

    For more information, contact Teresa Dougherty, PRSA Colorado.
