Introducing Social Media Saturdays

Social media – it’s a hot topic, a huge topic and it’s constantly evolving. Join AMA Omaha in collaboration with Randa Zalman, President and CEO of Canary and Coal, as we dive into the varying degrees of social media.

How much are these meetups?

  • FREE for all AMA Omaha members!
  • $10 for non-members
  • We do ask that AMA Omaha members still register so we can plan appropriately.

Who should attend?

  • Anyone interested in learning more about social media! Topics will vary and we will post them ahead of time on our event page.
  • Those with beginner through expert level of social media knowledge. This is a casual opportunity to start your social media journey or to learn more about what you already know. Bring your questions and your own experiences to share!

Where and when?

  • Regus Aksarben – 2111 S. 67th Street, Suite 300
  • Saturdays, 10:00am to 12:00pm
  • Please note that the frequency may change. However, it is our goal to bring you Social Media Saturdays at least once a month. Be sure to check our event page for exact dates and times.
