Webinar recording and slides: Good practices for using the internet and social media to promote your organization

March 13th, 2019 by Iler Campbell

Does your organization have a Twitter, Facebook or Instagram account, or any other social media accounts? Does it have a website, or a blog? Does it have any sort of internal network linking members or stakeholders? These tools can be powerful ways to get out information; they can reach far more people than the old fashioned newsletter or bulletin board. However, there are risks to having tools to get information out to more people, more quickly – when the information is defamatory or discriminatory, or otherwise problematic, having it distributed on line can create serious problems.

Iler Campbell lawyer, Shelina Ali discussed these issues in a webinar last Friday. A recording of it is now online. Check it out below. You can download a copy of her slideshow here.

Does your organization have a Twitter, Facebook or Instagram account, or any other social media accounts? Does it have a website, or a blog? Does it have any sort of internal network linking members or stakeholders? These tools can be powerful ways to get out information; they can reach far more people than the old fashioned newsletter or bulletin board. However, there are risks to having tools to get information out to more people, more quickly – when the information is defamatory or discriminatory, or otherwise problematic, having it distributed on line can create serious problems.

Join Iler Campbell lawyer, Michael Hackl, for an hour long session starting at noon on March 8th to discuss these sorts of problems, how significant they can be, and what your organization can do to protect itself from exposure to such issues.
