Addison, Texas (PRUnderground) May 20th, 2014

Mayor Todd Meier of Addison, Texas is proclaiming June 30th “Social Media Day” in honor of the DFW Rocks Social Media Conference to be held in Addison on June 29th and 30th.

Tech Industry Giant Mashable got the first proclamation signed by Victoria, B.C., Canada in 2010. Cities around the US have followed suit. Lissa Duty, organizer for the 3rd annual DFW Rocks Social Media Day Conference, is thrilled with Addison’s recognition of the importance of Social Media Day.

Lissa hopes Addison’s proclamation will motivate and encourage other cities in Texas to follow suit. And why does Lissa organize this Social Media Day celebration? She answers:

“I love social media! It has made it possible for all businesses to make an impact on their bottom line. In today’s online world we can all compete with the big corporations without needing the big budget.”

Lissa founded her social media consultancy in 2009, and since that time has been focused on providing social media education for business owners both locally and globally. Truly understanding social media platforms such as Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Instagram and using them effectively to grow a business is quite different that simply registering. This conference is an important outlet to promote and share this knowledge.

As Addison’s proclamation states: “Many citizens have used and continue to use these platforms to hold Meetups and Tweetups at various city businesses, educating others on the use of Social Media to further the prosperity of local business and keep moving our great city forward in shopping, tourism, attracting new visitors and future residents … ” and “June 30th is Social Media Day – the 2014 DFW Rocks Social Media Day Conference is in Addison for gathering together to celebrate and honor this day.”

Each year Lissa brings new and exciting speakers, opportunities, knowledge and value to this Social Media Day celebration. She explains:

“My goal with the DFW Rocks Social Media Conference is to provide important social media information that every business owner needs to continue to be successful and rise above the competition. Each year I look at what is coming, what is leaving, and what areas business owners are struggling with learning. I select the topics first and then find the perfect speaker to provide the information.”

She added, “I keep the price for the conference as low as possible, so that everyone who wants to attend can afford it. Many have told me I need to double or even triple the conference ticket price. My passion is education at this event, not profit. Call me crazy, but I love it!”

Well, I did call her crazy and she said:

“DFW Rocks Social Media Day is a national conference at local prices. Business owners around the U.S. need this important knowledge. If it wasn’t a big deal, Forbes Influencers such as Neal Schaffer, Shelly Kramer, Eric Tung, and 33 other well-known and established industry authorities wouldn’t be volunteering their time to speak!”

Sources say Mayor Todd Meier will make the opening announcement on June 30th, welcome the DFW Rocks Social Media Day Conference attendees, and kick off the Social Media Day Celebration.

Lissa challenges you – get your city to make a Social Media Day proclamation, or better yet, attend the DFW Rocks Social Media Conference and come celebrate with us!
