The event will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 2 in Community Hall at Antioch University, 602 Anacapa St. in Santa Barbara.

Admission is free to AWC members and $20 for nonmembers. Click here for more information or to reserve a seat.

Social media is not just a way to reconnect with distant family and friends. Social media can be used to market your services, and connect you with clients, colleagues and mentors.

Your network need not be limited to people you have met. There’s a social media revolution under way, and communicators cannot afford to not understand the tools and best practices to tap the power of social media.

Ross is known as The Marketing Therapist or Wild Web Woman. But when you break down her work as an advisor, speaker, trainer and agency lead, the core distinction is using online tools strategically to make meaningful relationships.

As a she-geek with super relationship savvy, her craft brings the heart of marketing to organizations who are "in it to win it."

Ross, M.A., teaches workshops on-site at corporations and also through UC Berkeley Extension. She was on the founding team at ValueClick Media. Her book, The McGraw-Hill 36 Hour Course to Online Marketing, is a must read. Her lynda.com courses are top-viewed business courses in their video training library. She has been featured in the media as a web marketing expert in publications including INC Magazine, Wall Street Journal, Forbes and SUCCESS Magazine.

Please join AWC-SB on April 2 as Ross shares her expertise on how to use social media to form meaningful and powerful connections.

— Cynthia Stewart is program chair for the Association for Women in Communication-Santa Barbara.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
