Don't be the last one into the social media pool...

Calling all social media moguls (or wannabe moguls): ASBA is now on Facebook and LinkedIn. Are you following us?

Facebook: Those who are already on Facebook can "Like" the page (filed under American Sports Builders Association). Once you've done that, you'll receive regular notifications of what's trending now: notifications from the Association, news stories pertaining to athletic facility design and construction and more.

Chances are, once you start following ASBA, you'll be able to catch up with industry colleagues as well -- many of whom have their own Facebook pages (for themselves as well as their companies).

LinkedIn: If you're already on LinkedIn, you'll find the American Sports Builders Association listed under "Groups." Follow ASBA and you'll receive regular e-mail notifications of industry discussions and more. Join the talk or just hover in the background and take it all in. You can also connect with fellow industry members and make new contacts.

Both ASBA's Facebook and LinkedIn accounts are always looking for input from you. Have an industry question? Want to post an interesting link? Share a news story? It's all possible, and all very welcome. ASBA is hoping for more member use of its social media and is looking forward to increasing its involvement there. Your questions and suggestions for how we can do our job better are also welcome! Call Laura Izzo at 443-640-1030 x110, or contact her via e-mail at

And if you're just considering diving into the social media pool, you're in luck. A special session at the ASBA Technical Meeting this December, " Get a Social (Media) Life: Marketing Your Business with Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn," will deal with all these topics. It'll give you a from-the-ground-up look at what you can accomplish -- often totally free of charge. Best of all, it's presented by ASBA members just like you, so come and hear what your colleagues have to say about the new media.
