Pgh Stonewall Dems Search for Social Media Editor

I'm very pleased that Steel-City Stonewall Democrats are on the search for a volunteer to focus solely on social media.  I've been working on this project with other local LGBT social media users and really want to applaud the group for embracing these tools to support their mission.  The job description is also attached to this post as a Word document that you can circulate.

This is a concrete way someone who has social media experience and a desire to be part of the solution can get involved. There are also opportunities for folks to serve as “aggegrators” to help keep the organization's followers, fans and tweeps well informed on issues related to the group's mission.  What an excellent opportunity for Pittsburgh!
