Social media workshop - VEFN - 13 July, Melbourne

Social Media has become a major means of communication to the public for recruiting, activity event promotion, and information. LVI partners, the Victorian Environmental Friends Network (VEFN) are inviting Landcare groups to join their Social Media Workshop on 13 July.

Presenters are Nick Sibbing from Artful who is a regular presenter to Small Business Victoria, and Kristen Boshma who has many years experience with marketing consultancy to major corporate, and who ran last year's very popular session.

This workshop will present two streams - one for newcomers to social media and one for more experienced. If you think about your knowledge in 1 - 10 (where 1 is none and ten is expert user) then stream one will cover 1 - 3/4 and stream two will cover 4/5 to 8.

VEFN welcomes up to three members of Friends, Landcare and other environment groups, with a small cost of $20 for people who are members of a VEFN member group, and $50 for others. This includes lunch. The venue is the Adina Apartment Hotel in Queen St Melbourne.
