SAN DIEGO—The Society for Human Resource Management's (SHRM's) Tweetup at Vin de Syrah Spirit & Wine Parlor drew 350 people here the evening of June 28, 2010, said the organization's Manager of PR and Social Media Relations Curtis Midkiff. People ate, drank, danced, tweeted and socialized for five hours.
“It was a great way for our members to take their online engagement to a more personal level,” Midkiff said. The tweetup was co-sponsored by Monster.com.
@RitaCJackson: Neon drinks, laughing, first meetings, great food and did I say neon drinks. All at #monstersocial#SHRM10
RT @Syrahwineparlor: SHRM & Monster Tweet Up is fantastic! #SHRM10 (@ Syrah Spirit & Wine Parlor w/ 9 others)
“We had a lot of people who tweet regularly and those who had never tweeted before. It was a good crowd,” Midkiff said.
Three people won prizes, including Robin Schooling, SPHR, who won an iPad courtesy of the HR Certification Institute, and Kim Urban, who won a SHRM Learning System. Kristen Shadburn won a free conference registration to next year’s SHRM Annual Conference in Las Vegas.
Through tweets, photos and video, members and exhibitors have been offering their view of the SHRM Annual Conference across the web on Twitter and on their blogs. The five members of SHRM’s Blog Squad also have weighed in with their conference observations on SHRM’s official Annual Conference blog page: http://annual.shrm.org/blog.
There, attendees can see additional tweets as well as HR Today, a video roundup of conference happenings.
