This likely won’t come as a shock to many of you; I’ve been invited to go work on Empire Avenue.
Of course, I said yes.
Starting Thursday, September 1st, my role will be, as with any startup, kinda fuzzy to begin with. Officially I’ll be the Director of Social and Community Management. In reality, I’ll be blogging, working with the various communities, and helping the team get things done. Whatever those things may be. Clean up after the Squirrel, you know.
What I’m leaving behind
For the last five years, I’ve been a Web Content Specialist and Web Business Analyst with the Alberta Motor Association.
It’s be a great time with a marvelous people and a great employer who’s allowed me to make mistakes, grow, and test the corporate waters with innovative social media experiments (hello @AMARoadReports)!
If you’d like to check out the position I’m leaving, here’s the link to the official posting. And I’d be happy to discuss the role, or the organization should you have any questions — email me (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Well, as I said, it’s going to be kinda fuzzy. Empire Avenue is a startup, and as such, there are lots of cool things that we’re doing, and that can be done! And in my work with community, I’m going to be working with and asking a lot of questions of *you*.
So, what can we do, together, on ‘the Avenue’, hmmm? Let’s find out!
