This fast-paced webinar will introduce the most popular platforms and how floodplain managers can use them effectively.

The importance of floodplain managers becoming social media savvy, challenges and considerations when launching a social media strategy, and suggested activities to get you started will be discussed.

Attendees will receive resources including job aids on best practice tips, suggestions for outreach activities, and steps to developing a social media strategy for your agency or organization.

In this webinar, you will learn how to:
  • identify the most popular social media platforms, common terms and actions, and which to use for specific communications;
  • recognize why becoming social media savvy is essential and how it can help you more effectively reach your customers, communicate, and perform outreach; and
  • establish a social media strategy and first steps to get started.

Presenters:
Brian Varrella, PE, CFM, Co-Owner, Forum V Consulting
Brian Varrella, is the Chair of the Colorado Association of Stormwater and Floodplain Managers, and Co-Owner of Forum V Consulting. During the 2013 Colorado floods, the Colorado Chapter realized the need for and benefit of a strong social media presence and relationship with their public. The chapter’s successful social media strategy not only aided in disaster and state response and established the chapter as Subject Matter Experts in the field where the media, public, and policy makers could access accurate flood information during and after the disaster.

Kait Laufenberg, CFM, Training & Chapter Coordinator, ASFPM
Kait Laufenberg has increasingly used social media to communicate with ASFPM’s chapters and members about training and outreach initiatives. Social media’s success as a communication and outreach tool especially before, during, and after a disaster has shown how essential it is for FPMs. Kait works with our chapters who have successfully launched social media initiatives to aid others in forming social media strategies. She is currently working to develop new webinar topics on social media to help our members get up to speed in this critical knowledge area.
