The Association will use the three popular social networking sites to communicate with its members, make important announcements, and to let members offer their opinions on issues affecting their businesses.

“The pace of business is faster than ever, and these social media allow NSGA members to connect, even if it’s just for a few minutes, with the Association,” said NSGA President & CEO Matt Carlson. “On-the-go executives can stay abreast of Association and industry happenings on their smartphones, at their desks or at home.”

As an added bonus, NSGA has used Flickr since May. Several dozen of the best photos from the 45th Annual NSGA Management Conference & 11th Annual Team Dealer Summit, held last May in San Antonio are posted there for all to view. Just go to:
