Being a local ACS Section Leader is a great opportunity to practice many of the skills and techniques that are required throughout your career to help you achieve your goals and be happy. This webinar will focus on the three key aspects of all great leaders and provide some advice on how to implement these throughout your professional career and volunteering roles. Leadership is something that can be learned, so please join us to learn how!
Join us for a virtual meeting lead by the National YCC’s Communication Experts. This meeting is open to all LSYCC and student Chem Club leaders. We all already know how to use many social media platforms including Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram, and Snapchat as well as keep up our website. This training will discuss the social media policy when posting on behalf of the ACS, ways to link the platforms to make your life easier, and which platforms are best for which kinds of messaging.
