The Marketing Executives Networking Group (MENG) announced this morning that it has formed a Social Media Council of Advisors to provide strategic guidance on social media trends and issues to the MENG Board and its membership of nearly 2000 executive marketers.
Much to my delight, I will join Mack Collier, Paul Dunay, Beth Harte, Amber Naslund and Joe Pulizzi to form this new advisory group. (You can see their handsome mugs above). All five of my co-advisors are incredibly generous and insightful people that I've been learning from for quite a while. It will be awesome to work along side them and soak in their smarts!
Our duties will be varied…but they will include advising members and the MENG board, doing some writing for the collective and conducting quarterly webinars together (that should be quite the talk fest!) I'm really looking forward to it.
If you don't know much about MENG, it's the premiere international community of executive-level marketers and it provides networking opportunities and the ability to share knowledge and best practices. Members must have reached at least the VP level in their organization. Eighty four percent of members have Fortune 500 experience and 70% have earned graduate degrees.
Stay tuned…it should get interesting!
