Letter from the President

Blogging, and Facebook and Twitter... oh my! This trifecta of social media has become ubiquitous in our culture over the past 18 months, and ACGA has joined in this networking revolution with our own Facebook Fan Page, a Twitter feed, as well as a regularly updated blog. While it may seem like a lot all of the sudden, it's actually just a first small step in making the ACGA a more easily accessible resource for our members.

So what can blogging and Facebook and Twitter (oh my!) do for you? While all three portals are going to be sources of new information for our members, the ACGA Blog is a great place where you can comment on posted topics and have your voice heard. There is also regularly updated bits of new information on shows opportunities, short member profiles, and of course, the letter from the President every month. The Facebook Fan Page is a great place for our members to post bits of their own news and useful links related to clay or glass. And our Twitter postings will have a lot of overlap from what you can already find on the blog and Facebook, so it's more useful for what you can find from the people we follow, such as the Archie Bray Foundation and Craft Magazine who are posting their own "tweets" and links.

So please, take some time to get familiar with the ACGA social media presence. Your participation and feedback is vital, so let your voice be heard... people are listening!
