A Message from our Co-Presidents

Welcome to the Social Media Association. We are delighted that you are visiting our website.

About SMA

SMA is the right group for you — if, like us, you create, manage, use, or advise about social media, digital content and new emerging technologies…and seek to advance your social media literacy.

SMA will inform you about best practices, industry developments and cutting-edge communication technologies and platforms.

SMA will encourage you to think creatively, solve problems, meet and network with peers and stay ahead of the curve.

Like you, we seek to have an impact on new ways of communicating, branding, and interfacing with colleagues, vendors, customers, and the public. Our members and sponsors include a broad spectrum of the American economy:

  • Not-for-profit organizations;
  • Mid-cap companies;
  • Emerging companies;
  • Fortune 500 companies;
  • Businesses that utilize social ways to connect with their existing and prospective customers;
  • Businesses and their leaders who are not quite sure what social interaction means, or how to begin the process;
  • Developers who are creating third party apps, wearable products, 3D printing and other technologies;
  • Public relations and marketing professionals who produce innovative communication technologies; and
  • Trusted advisors, including attorneys, accountants, bankers, insurance companies with wealth managers

About Our Events

We host many meetings that feature diverse speakers and events.

During the past year, our presenters have included:

In addition, we periodically host informal tweetups and meetups throughout the year, providing networking opportunities and social engagement for members and friends alike.
