The Social Media Club is holding its 1st annual conference, happening November 10-12, 2010 in Orlando, Florida, USA.

There’s a whelter of big names presenting there: David Meerman Scott, Katie Paine, Tom Foremski, Jason Falls, John Hagel III, Nic Adler, Tara Hunt, and Amber Naslund.

But even more important than the presenters is the opportunity to network and share ideas and experiences with your peers from around the world.

I know that for me, that opportunity was a highlight when I spoke at the IABC World Conference last year; I have no doubt that the networking and idea sharing (and saying to yourself, “So that’s what she looks like in real life”) will be a far greater value for you than you might at first realise.

If you have the funds available, or can persuade someone to release them as part of your training and development, you really should get your registration in now.

As the SMC say on the University ‘info’ tab:

This is also the first ever membership meeting for Social Media Club, the association for social media professionals. We will be discussing the rise of social media as a true profession, determining the course of our organization in 2011 and beyond. We will be nominating a new board, ratifying our bylaws, choosing programs to support and sharing our lessons learned.

    Thank you for sharing this Lee. This 1st annual conference is a huge step for Social Media Club as we transition from a grass roots loosely joined organization to a full fledged non-profit trade association, specially focused on social media professionals.

    Hope to see your faces there.
    Happy to report that so far we have confirmations from members in the USA, Mexico, Netherlands, Nigeria, India, and Germany. Would love to add Australians to the attendee list. :)

    There are discount tickets on sale through October 1st.
