Following last summer’s SHEAR conference, several SHEAR members, including me, recommended that the organization embrace social media such as Facebook, Twitter, and blogging. In response, President Drew Cayton and the executive council allowed a working group to draft a proposal recommending steps to be taken.

As I understand it, there will be an opportunity to discuss SHEAR’s future in social media at this July’s SHEAR conference in Baltimore. In the meantime, SHEAR has established Twitter (@SHEARites) and Facebook accounts.
