ASPA Webinar on Social Media and Government

Washington, DC–Does your local government use social media? Or have you been hearing a lot about social media and still not sure how useful it is for governments?

Then join ASPA on Wednesday, April 18, 2012, for a webinar on “The Use and Utility of Social Media in Government.” Presenters will focus on the application of social media in local government and its efficacy on operations.

The webinar will present practices from the upcoming report, “The Rise of Social Government”, which is based on a survey of 108 cities and in-depth interviews with government administrators. Revealed will be social media technologies that local governments are using, how social media is managed, monitored and measured by city government staff and concrete examples of how social media is impacting government administration.

Presenters are:

  • Katherine Parker, MPA candidate at Fels Institute of Government and Associate, consultant with the Fels Research & Consulting division
  • Lauren Hansen-Flaschen, associate consultant for University of Pennsylvania’s Fels Institute of Government. Hansen-Flaschen is co-author and co-researcher of The Rise of Social Government: An Advanced Guide and Review of Social Media’s Role in Local Government Operations due out in May.
