Facebook Lions Arizona Page –Many clubs have “liked” our page Mid-Year Conference Page –Sharing information about the conference There are several Arizona Lions Clubs with Facebook pages that are now linked to the state page.
We have reached out to the PR Committee in order to coordinate messaging with them. This is still in progress.
We are working to coordinate the IT for conferences and conventions. Meetings will be run more efficiently and waiting because of IT issues will be eliminated.
Future Plans: Short Term/immediately coming up – LinkedIn Page for MD21 – Webcasting state conferences and conventions – More effective use of technology – MD21 You Tube Page Lion Joseph makes outstanding photo montages and they should be shared.
Long term Create committee to integrate social networking and technology with our clubs My hope is to have Leos help with this as they are very knowledgeable about social networking All state events will be fully integrated with social networking and technology We will work with the PR and Membership committees to get out a consistent message which will lead to an increase in membership
