Chalkboarder CEO assumes board presidency of Social Media Club PDX

Earlier this week the board of Social Media Club Portland (OR) handed the post of board president to me. With humility and excitement, I thank Carri Bugbee (outgoing President), for nominating this change and thank the rest of the board for placing their trust in me. Carri, it will be difficult to match the dedication and energy you have exhibited.

The international parent association of Social Media Club is launching a shift in this hot and new profession, establishing a formalization of chapters and what it means to be a social web professional.

If you are practicing social media for an organization, I strongly encourage you to seek either free or professional membership in Social Media Club.

To the board of SMC PDX, thank you for the opportunity.

One Year And Growing

It was a year ago that Chalkboarder was created. My partner Judith and I spent eight weeks writing a business plan and meeting with Paul Speer of SCORE (a former CTO managing 5000 internationally in Web 3.0 development). Of course, not all has gone according to that plan and we’ve grown in unanticipated directions.

We’d like to take this moment to thank current and past clients:

Coffee Fest
Rewarding Feedback
Social Grub
Angela Tunner Brand
World Twang
Jenee Halstead
Dessert Professional Magazine
Oak Grove Coffeehouse

We’d also like to thank the following individuals for great conversations and dialogue over the past year:

Paul Barron, Carri Bugbee, Marsha Collier, Kerry Finstead, Matt Milletto, Zachary Cohen, Traca Savadago, Michael Atkinson, Amanda Hite, Joni Doolin, Jill McFarland, Brie Nadal, Kat Cole, Chris Brogan, Brian Solis, Eric Qualman, Chris Guillebeau, Ola Ayeni, Justin Levy, Ron Ruggles, Dan Schwabel, Amber Naslund, Sonya Schweitzer, Pia Proal, the crew at Evergreen DynamicsSo and so many, many others.

I personally would like to thank Judith Smith (VP/Co-Founder), Jennifer Kingman (Partner), Bill Bridgmon (Partner and VP Sales), David Rogers, Roger LeClerc, David Hiler, Cecilia Kingman-Miller and James Kingman. Your encouragement and support is greatly valued.

As part of our One Year Birthday, we’re very pleased to announce reaching a milestone. We’ve partnered with two outstanding individuals to empower deeper and more aggressive growth, based in Southern California and New York/New Jersey.

Southern California
We’re very excited to partner with Chef Sandra Mallut, an extremely accomplished professional pastry chef with deep connections world-wide, including Disney. Sandra will spearhead relational connections and socialmedia client development in California, Nevada and the Southwest, in addition to the dessert industry. Welcome aboard, Chef!

New York/New Jersey
We’re also very excited to partner with Matthew Vitrola, a double major honors student at Brown University, majoring in economics and linguistics, with a focus on new media and the social web and a professional interest in the hospitality industry. Matthew’s extrovert and analytic skills will be a valuable addition to Chalkboarder in pursuing new business in the Northeast. Welcome aboard, Matt!

We’re very appreciative of all the support, dialogue and encouragement we’ve received, especially from Social Media Club PDX here in Oregon. We’re excited to serve the community and our clients with greater knowledge and skill as we all move forward together.

Where’s the cake? Anyone want a slice? Ice cream too? The Vueve Clicquot is over at the bar 🙂

Facebook and what the new changes mean to the restaurant business

Facebook and what the new changes mean to the restaurant business. A podcast.

This week I was humbled and honored to participate in a podcast hosted by Paul Barron (@paulbarron), Publisher of Fast Casual Magazine. The other participants were:

Carri Bugbee (@CarriBugbee), Andrew Pascal (@ARKFoodie), and Nash Sherchan (@iRestaurant)

It was deep and enlightening to be a participant.

From Paul Barron’s blog Social Coco:

What a great forum with some awesome people to discuss the recent changes at Facebook and how this may affect the restaurant business.

Joining us today: @iRestaurant @CarriBugbee @JeffreyJKingman @arkfoodie

Facebook released a variety of changes at the most recent F8 Conference.

From the Huffingtonpost:
“Having built one of the Web’s most popular hangouts, Facebook is trying to extend its reach through new tools called “social plug-ins.” These enable Facebook’s users to share their interests in such products as clothes, movies and music on other websites. For instance, you might hit a button on Levis.com indicating you like a certain style of jeans, and then recommend a movie on another site. That information about the jeans and the movie might be passed along to other people in your Facebook network, depending on your privacy settings.”

Listen in on some great ideas and commentary from experts in the restaurant industry speaking on the impact of Facebook.
