Transcript: President’s Message – Social Media
Many years ago, in a time before some of our members were even born people had only the major networks as their television choices. And if they didn’t get their news from either ABC, CBS, or even NBC they actually had something called a newspaper delivered at home. Imagine that!
Hello brothers and sisters, I would like to talk to you for just a minute today about the information age. As we all know, it has exploded because of the Internet, and social media has changed the game. And because of it, pretty much anyone who wants to get on a soapbox and talk can do so. You could even say that IBEWHourPower.com, which launched nearly 10 years ago, was born because of our desire to spread the good news of the IBEW to the world. And now, millions of clicks and views later, Hour Power remains an important voice for the IBEW in an electronic age.
Besides your own rank and file, we have heard from customers, contractors, developers, and even elected leaders who watch the content we produce. But there is something you can do too. This is yet another tool to get in front of our tech savvy society.
- Forward an Hour Power video to a friend
- Post an Hour Power link to your profile page
- “Like” the Hour Power Facebook Page
But most importantly, talk to other people about what the IBEW can offer them. Send them to our site, to a video on YouTube, our strongest social networking group will always be the group that is around you.
What we offer is not only a great career but also the pride of belonging to something bigger than ourselves. It strengthens the brotherhood and may even plant the seed for a potential career in the minds of others; and that helps us all in the end.
Thanks for the click. See you soon, and remember, every hour counts.
