Is your city struggling with how to keep up with the ever-expanding social media world? In this webinar, Assistant General Counsel Heather Lockhart will provide an overview of legal issues associated with social media usage by public officials and employees.
The webinar will cover pitfalls in operating city social media accounts, as well as dealing with employee social media usage. You will receive practical tips on social media policy considerations, and an example social media policy that your city can use as a starting point for enacting or revising your social media policy.
