Advanced Facebook for Local Unions

“So my local union agreed to make a Facebook page – Now what?”

Come by to learn best practices on how to efficiently and effectively manage a Facebook page for your local union or organization.

We’ll go over:

- How to deal with nasty comments

- What to post and how often

- Page administration

And other tips for making your Facebook page engaging – and to make it easy for you to run a Facebook page.

Emily Tao & Molly Katchpole from IATSE will lead the training. Find the IATSE on Facebook and Twitter

Emily Tao is the first-ever communications director at the IATSE and oversees all communications initiatives.

Since joining the IATSE in 2011, Emily founded and maintains the IATSE’s social media presence, including its Facebook and Twitter, and headed the redesign of the IATSE website in 2012. In early 2014, the Communications Department released the IATSE Social Media and Netiquette Guide as a primer using social media professionally in a labor union setting. Much of this guide is based off of trainings and presentations that Emily conducted.

Molly Katchpole is the Outreach Coordinator for the IATSE’s Communications Department.

Since October 2013, Molly has provided support for the department’s communications projects and ongoing efforts. Most recently, Molly helped run the Save the Met Opera campaign by coordinating its online presence. Earlier in the year, Molly worked on developing and publishing the union’s first Social Media and Netiquette Guide. Prior to working for the IATSE, Molly did campaign organizing with the Progressive Change Campaign Committee and Rebuild the Dream, and was a social media producer for the Flaming Sword of Justice podcast, now known as The Good Fight.
