BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND!
FCA BROWN BAG SERIES 2.0
Digitally Remastered!

Grab your lunch and pull your chair up to your computer to hang out with your FCA colleagues. Each month we’ll explore a new topic relevant to our work. Using GoToWebinar, we’ll talk virtually with each other, allowing for conference call, video in some cases, and screen sharing. Each session will engage several panelists with experience in the topic, so come with questions AND ideas and thoughts based on your own work. Brown Bag programs will be more like a conversation with colleagues and less like a presentation or conference session.

OCTOBER BROWN BAG WEBINAR
Think Fast: Adopting New
Technologies to Tell Your Story

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 11 @ 12 NOON EST

Snapchat, Tumblr, live video, virtual reality:
Communication channels and tools evolve quickly. Talk with fraternity/sorority professionals who have been early adopters of some of these tools and brainstorm how we could utilize them to tell our organizations’ stories. 

This session will be part panel and part brainstorming about using new technologies in your communications work. We are excited to have an outside guest joining us as well. Alex Restrepo, Social Media Manager for the New Orleans Saints and Pelicans, will be on the webinar. These teams led the way in using Snapchat for professional sports teams. 
 
Come share and gain new ideas with your FCA colleagues in thinking about how we can use these highly visual tools to tell the stories of fraternities and sororities.
