As a member of the Subcouncil, I’m so excited to start getting some of our draft concepts out to the larger community of government communicators and innovators.
As an employee at the State government level, it’s been exciting to work with a diverse group at the federal, state and local levels (see our members). At first, I worried whether being “just” a state government representative would allow me to fully participate, since much of the momentum for social media seems to be rooted within the federal community. It didn’t take long to realize that our issues are the same at every level when it comes to addressing barriers, getting buy-in, and making the business case.
