Before we tweetup

The second SAMPRB tweetup is in a mere 37 hours (but who’s counting?) so we wanted to post a quick list of what to expect. If this reminds you of your school days when teachers would tell you what to bring to a test I immediately apologize and promise that the tweetup will be much more fun, engaging and effective than any standardized test.

1. Because I know my priorities I’m listing food first. As you know, the great people at Paloma Blanca have once again agreed to accomodate our group (52 RSVPs! Not too shabby) and, to help things run smoothly, they have suggested a three-item lunch menu. Each item is $14, which includes the lunch entree and drink of your choice, tax and gratuity. Easy right? So just make sure you make a trip to the ATM sometime before the tweetup.

The menu is below:

  • Enchiladas Verdes: Two chicken enchiladas covered in our tangy tomatillo sauce, melted queso Monterrey and topped with sour cream. Served with Spanish rice, frijoles borrachos and guacamole.
  • Pollo al Cilantro: Grilled chicken breast covered with our signature Crema Cilantro. Served with Spanish rice and frijoles borrachos.
  • Ensalada Esmeralda: A blend of crisp iceberg, romaine and spinach lettuces with grilled chicken, tortilla strips, red onions, rajas poblano and queso fresco tossed in our cilantro dressing.

2. Don’t forget our theme is personal branding but think of that as the appetizer. The idea is to let the discussion run it’s own course. @nanpalmero from Salesby5, @joeruiz from KSAT and SAMPRB founder and yours truly, @andinarvaez from KGBTexas Public Relations / Advertising, will kick us off with some insight on personal branding for those in business, media and public relations. We will then open up the floor for more discussion. Our very own @writeontime (A.K.A. Donna Tuttle), from the San Antonio Business Journal and also a proud SAMPRB founder, will be our moderator.

3. If you couldn’t make it or RSVP, don’t despair. We will live stream the tweetup via Ustream and live tweet using the #samprb hashtag. Feel free to participate right from your office or from home.

4. Three things are more than enough to keep track of. See you at the tweetup!

SAMPRB tweetup #2

April 9, 2009

If there was one thing to take away from the first, very successful, San Antonio Media/Public Relations/Business (SAMPRB) St. Patrick’s Day tweetup (besides the great people, delicious food and lively discussion) it was the fact that this niche group of fellow Twittering San Antonians are clamoring for more opportunities to get together with peers and like minds.

Officially, the SAMPRB tweetup will take place towards the end of every month in an effort to get together at least once over lunch for a chance to ask questions, share advice and form relationships with people who are in your same line of business or work for sister industries.

Although tweetups are usually informal and unstructured, we have proposed a theme for the next tweetup in order to get our minds geared up to start thinking about good questions or issues to bring up for discussion. The topic for SAMPRB tweetup #2 is…(drumroll)

Personal Branding – Your social media personality

Feel free to comment here to suggest other topics or submit your questions ahead of time.

For everyone interested in taking the conversation beyond the tweetup – join the SAMPRB Google group, where we will keep the discussion going,save useful files and resources from the tweetup and post useful links related to the uses of social media for media, public relations and business.

Lastly, don’t forget to use the #SAMPRB hashtag on Twitter if you ever find yourself Twittering something that the group could help with or that could be taken up for discussion at the tweetup.

And now without further ado…

RSVP here to attend SAMPRB tweetup #2!
