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). You can also post to ASBA's page if you have some interesting industry news.

LinkedIn: If you're already on LinkedIn, you'll find the American Sports Builders Association listed under "Groups." Join ASBA's group 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.

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 the ASBA office at 443-640-1042, x110, or contact her via e-mail at

And if you're just considering diving into the social media pool (or getting in deeper), you're in luck. A special session at the ASBA Technical Meeting this December, "Beyond the Like Button: The Evolution of Social Media and How It Impacts Your Business," will deal with all these topics. It'll give you a from-the-ground-up look at what you can accomplish using everything from Facebook Ads to Groupon to Yelp to Foursquare. Best of all, it's presented by Ryan Melton of the TIA -- someone who knows how to use social media to benefit the sports industry.
