Live Blog II Kicks off Saturday.

Friday, we began a live blog in the House of Delegates. As time went by, more and more Academy members joined the conversation and as we got the hang of it, we discovered a great new tool to help formulate thoughts, questions and commentary during a meeting.

We turned the live blog back on for Saturday's Keynote Address and, while fewer members participated, we again enjoyed a lively forum, with participation not only from the live blogging site, but also through Twitter.

Numerous articles have been written about the benefit of social media for associations. We began our experience with it here in Atlantic City. With further development and promotion, this could become an outstanding tool for enhancing communications between Academy members, NJAFP and other academies and with our patients.

Possibilities are virtually endless.

What do you think?

Thanks for participating. Gotta get ready for the Gala!
