As some of you may be aware the #SMEM community made a huge push to get #SMEM into this years top categories for consideration on GovFresh's Awards for social media engagement. Well, I have some good news. Not only did our efforts get #SMEM as a category this year pay off, #SMEM will have two separate categories for submissions and votes! Those two categories are: 1) Best Use of Social Media for Emergency Management and 2) Best Emergency Management App! To check out the categories and start submitting see the links below:
This is a huge opportunity for the #SMEM community to band together yet again and push our best practices, lessons learned, and primary examples of success into the public eye. Please take a moment and click on through to help support the use of social media in emergency management by supporting organizations whom have led the way thus far.
The 2011 GovFresh Awards honors the most innovative citizen and city and local government technology projects of the year.
