Social Media & IR: What to look out for - NIRI-AZ March Lunch Program

Social media, new media, emerging media… whatever you want to call it, the times are changing. Investor Relations professionals have a broad array of new tools – blogs, Twitter, RSS and more – to use for communications with investors and potential investors. However, social media is a moving target. Trends and best practices seem to rapidly change, new jargon and acronyms are born, philosophies are debated and a battle about control, visibility and what can & can’t be said continues to rage on.

The March lunch program with emphasize best practices for integrating social media into your communications. We will use case studies and an open discussion to discover how you feel social media can help, or already has helped, your organization.
