Public Policy Communicators NYC is an informal group of nonprofit and foundation communications executives that has been meeting roughly bimonthly over the past five years to explore contemporary, practical topics to improve our work. Whether it’s looking at macro issues like FCC policy on “net neutrality” or micro issues like how to make the most of low-cost multi-media, PPC-NYC meetings bring members into close contact with experts for full conversations that generate new ideas.

**This is a brown bag lunch series. Come early and network with your colleagues while you eat your salad or sandwich before the program begins at 12:30 p.m.**


This Session- Bring Out Your Hashtags!

This is the second gathering  of the PPC-NYC subgroup of communications professionals focused on social media  (our first was in February) that we’re calling “Social Media Club for Grantmakers and Nonprofits.” This first session brought together those who plan and/or execute social media efforts at their organization to discuss the kinds of strategies and campaigns they are experimenting with, and was aimed at assessing how much interest there was in meeting with others to build cross-organizational connections that are mutually supportive.  The large group of attendees and the feedback from the meeting clearly indicated a strong interest in the topic.

This second meeting of Social Media Club will have the group talking about hashtags: What are the hashtags you use the most in your work? How have you experimented with them? What are the most effective practices with hashtags?

This conversation will be participant driven and will not have a designated “speaker.”
