If you are there and looking for an awesome workshop, please stop by the Social Media Panel on June 3rd at 10:30am (in Maryland A). This will be an interactive workshop that will discuss the positive uses of social media and its benefits (and some pitfalls to avoid). Social media allows people to spread awareness and educate others about their personal life experiences, but it can be a tricky medium to utilize. The panel members have specific differences in how they use social media and encourage you to come find how to make it work for you and fit your needs! This will include but isn’t limited to a discussion on etiquette for job seekers.
For all who attend, please use the hashtag #LPAdc2013

Chelley Martinka, a 2006 BS of Hospitality grad from Johnson & Wales University, has worked in marketing, social media, large events and brings experience in the proverbial spotlight to the table. In December 2012 Chelley asked a mid-west company to change the m-word on a pickle jar to something less archaic- in February 2013, they agreed. A flurry of positive and negative feedback from the media, public and the LP community ensued… or, is still ensuing. Learning how to incorporate Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Google+, and other sites into dwarfism awareness and advocacy, Chelley brings the perspective of an AH parent to our workshop.
