Do you know a Digital Champion? The Deadline for Nominations is Nov. 15th!
Hello EACE Colleagues,
Greetings from one of your Spring Digital Champions! Before I brag about this fantastic opportunity, I want to share a bit about my own digital journey.
Launch Pad: EACE 2016, Philadelphia, PA, Newcomers Breakfast.
Setting: As newcomers were greeted at the door, it was requested of us to sit at a table labeled with a placard of an area of interest that you want to explore. I sat at a table with a jovial, energetic colleague, who warmly welcomed me.
Launch: @PatrickYoung, through his #TechnologySpeak and engagement around the breakfast table thrust me into a digital world that I dared not to embark on before. Of course, @Patrick Young had some friends that continued to encourage me to join the Technology Committee. Though “technology challenged”, @AmySmith and @RachelWobrak encouraged me to sign-up. Rachel then quelled my angst and guided me as I tackled my first major digital challenge- a Twitter chat.
Well, I’ve come a long way since that initial @PatrickYoung experience. I am thankful for the Spring Digital Champion recognition. Getting a “gold star” for my digi-efforts is significant. Although I’m not a digi-wizard, I am thrilled and humbled to have my efforts in this area acknowledged. With this said, I welcome each of you to the #EACE Digital Champions initiative!
Each quarter, the Technology Committee recognizes those who utilize technology in new or innovative ways, are new to technology, but going full-force, or those who are engaging the EACE community through exceptional social media use.
If you know an EACE member who is doing great things in this digital age, we want to hear about it. The online nomination form is simple to fill out and the process is as easy as 1- 2- 3. The champion selected, will be recognized by the EACE community and the nominee AND nominator both win $25 Amazon e-gift cards!
The deadline for the Fall Digital Champion is fast approaching. November 15th is the deadline, so the time to acknowledge those exceptional digi-efforts is now. Thank you, in advance, for your participation in this #EACEExciting effort.
