19 Social Media & the Public Sector— Closing Argument ECIA provides vital services to those who take advantage at life-changing—and sometimes life-defining—moments. You need to be vibrant, a source of hope. I feel like social media, along with other bolstered marketing efforts, could further familiarize the community in which you exist with your organization. Social media could allow you to cement your relationships and establish ECIA not only as a resource, but as a life-long partner. Use social media to add meaning > understanding > life/human side to what your organization does
