Government Social Media Organization (GSMO)

GSMO is a national advisory institute and member network for U.S. local, state and regional government social media managers. Members have access to forums, groups, webinars and other exclusive resources.

The most valuable resource is the ability to make direct connection with counterparts in other agencies similar to yours. Join the network today!

About the GSMO Council

Our Council of top government social media professionals was formed both to advise GSMO leadership on the direction of the network and to serve as community moderators. The current Council will serve through April 2017, when elections will be held at #GSMCON2017 for the next team. As a change in October 2016, the GSMO Council will now serve as advisors to GSMCON.
