Remember, you don’t have to start something new to get the benefit of ASCE social media. You may be able to contribute to existing communities that already have a large, active following. That way, you can reach your goal with far less up-front effort.
Starting a New Social Media Initiative
Any social media project that you undertake on behalf of your section, branch, younger member group, or student chapter must be reviewed and approved by the ASCE Social Media Team. Submit a social media request form to start the process.
Because they know more about the big picture of ASCE social media than anyone else, the social media team uses this review and approval process to ensure efforts are complimentary and not duplicated. When you fill out the social media request form, you’ll be asked questions like these:
Sample Questions from the Approval Process
- What is the purpose of the project?
- Who is the target audience?
- Who are the primary and secondary administrators managing this?
- How often with this be updated?
- After the initial rollout, how will you evaluate and improve your efforts?
Already Using Social Media?
Now is the time to reach out to the ASCE social media team. They’ll help you get more out of your efforts, starting with getting your site registered. They’ll also review your site to make sure it complies with ASCE’s rules and requirements. If anything needs updating, the team will let you know.
