The next meeting of the Cornwall Social Media Café will take place on Tuesday, 8th November at 6.00pm at County Hall in Truro (click here for travel info).
Cornwall Council entered the brave new world of social media some time ago, but has really stepped up its efforts in the past year, not only using platforms such as Twitter and Facebook in an attempt to engage but also webcasting, using a live chat feature to allow the public to be involved in meetings and give their views.
They thought it was about time they invited the local social media community into County Hall, to share their new public space and wifi and talk about what they are trying to achieve – both as a Council and in using social media and innovation. They would really welcome your views as to how they’re doing.
Chief Executive, Kevin Lavery, will take time to talk to us about Cornwall Council’s future plans, and why social media is important to Cornwall.
Hannah Rees, Communications Manager will talk to us about the small steps Cornwall Council has taken to engage with the public using social media. There will then be chance to ask questions of Hannah and several of the councillors who are keen Twitter users.
If you’re into social media – for work, study or play – and you’ve never been to a Cornwall Social Media Café meeting before, we’d love to see you. Each month CSMC brings together a great crowd of people from Cornwall’s business, academic, media and public sectors – sometimes just for informal networking and sometimes to hear a guest speaker talk about an interesting aspect of social media and the digital world.
Membership is free – all we ask is that you register your attendance in advance so we have some idea of numbers on the night.
We look forward to seeing you on the 8th!
