The next #SHRMChat is tonight at 8pm EST/7pm CST and will be my first time participating in 2013. But, before I go on and explain more in detail, some of you may ask …what is #SHRMChat?
#SHRMChat is an online discussion between members of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) who serve in a leadership role in some capacity. It has been my experience that this provides another way to connect and share ideas with various people who, without technology, I might never contact. It is time well spent and well worth your time to check it out and see if it is right for you.
UPDATE: (05:23pm) Please note that you do not have to be a SHRM Volunteer leader to participate in the chat. All are welcome!!!
The following information will tell you how to access #SHRMChat:
- Create a Twitter account if you do not have one already. As you can guess by the use of a hashtag (#)……the chat is via Twitter.
- As a courtesy, I will always “warn” my followers when I participate in a Twitter chat. Otherwise, if I don’t, they may be wondering “Why the heck is he sending out all of these messages.”
- Visit http://tweetchat.com. (See Image.)
- Login with your Twitter username/password.
- Search on #SHRMChat.
- Join the fun!
Joan Ginsberg, Dave Ryan & Tonight’s Chat
I discovered #SHRMChat quite by accident last year and connected with Joan Ginsberg. Joan’s Blog, Just Joan, is home to more information about the current and past #SHRMChats. Dave Ryan, of the HR Official blog will be tonight’s host.
I invite you to join the fun. Let me know if you’ve joined based on this post by letting the chat know that @HRtoWHO/@kylemj6977 sent you.
I’ll see you in the Twitter Stream!
