At Member Meetings, you’ll collaborate with people like you who can help you be a more effective social media leader.
Everything is completely private, off-the-record, and in an incredibly efficient format. Get fast answers to the questions and challenges you can’t talk about anywhere else.
Every meeting is exclusively for social media leaders at major hospitals.
You’ll connect with more social media leaders from major hospitals in one day than you will anywhere else all year.
Bringing so many hospitals together creates incredible conversations that span a wide range of challenges. You’ll get answers and insights from unexpected places, make amazing connections, and leave with a notebook full of ideas.
You’ll have incredibly valuable conversations.
Because everyone in the room is a social media leader, no matter what you’re looking to start, figure out, or fix — someone else has been there before and can help.
It’s efficient and designed for busy leaders.
Meetings are typically a little over a day and a half and located in convenient cities, so you can get in and out in a little more than 24 hours.
We’re famous for running on-time, keeping a fast pace, and expert moderation. You’re busy, so we make sure every minute is time well spent.
Unique venues and changing formats — but always great experiences.
We mix things up to keep it interesting so no two meetings are ever the same. But the core never changes: Great conversations through Unconferences, Show & Tells, Small Groups, and Meal Discussions.
We do 4-6 meetings per year. Registration fees are usually $500, and the bigger events are $1,500 — we keep them low and aim to simply cover our costs. We recommend all members of your roster get to at least two meetings per year.
We don’t do a lot of the usual conference stuff.
There are no sponsors, exhibitors, panels, keynotes, vendors, or canned presentations. In fact, the only time someone stands at the front of the room is when another member is sharing with you.
Member Meetings aren’t conferences. They’re the highlight experience of membership, and attending gets you better insights, answers, and the help you need to lead your social media program. These conversations don’t happen anywhere else — it’s the kind of practical, actionable advice you can only get from other leaders like you.
How members describe it:
“The unconference exceeded my expectations. I learned, I educated, I debated, I shared, and I left the event better prepared to manage my organization’s social media program.”
Mo Moorman, Aurora Health Care
“A fantastic meeting. I’ve got several pages of ideas to follow-up on, lots of great contacts made, and had a ton of fun, to boot.”
Neal Linkon, Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin
“Nothing is more helpful than being in a room with professionals who can provide specific input related to your social media problems or questions.”
Julie Beckert, HCR ManorCare
“The experience and collective knowledge in the room is invaluable.”
Diane Lang, Nationwide Children’s Hospital
“This was a worthwhile experience; great discussions by great speakers who are people like us in the healthcare social media world.”
Marina McGowan, Northwell Health
“I’ve been to a number of conferences and never enjoyed them much as I did this event. I felt extremely comfortable, accepted, and understood. I gained a number of takeaways, but also confidence in what we’re doing as a healthcare system.”
Courtney Leach, Parkview Health
“The SocialMedia.org Health Member Meeting was fantastic! I walked away from the first day with ideas and inspiration. I walked away from the second day with strategic insights I plan to implement in our social media program.”
Alexandra Tursi, The University of Vermont Medical Center
“Great opportunity to network (and empathize). Lots of smart people together in the same room — and everyone ‘gets it.’”
Lisa McMahan, Oregon Health & Science University
“This has been the single-most informative meeting I have ever been to! I have never been so excited and empowered to do my job and do it well! I have so many ideas!”
Ariane Detamore, Union Hospital
