We (the Coalition of Filipino American Chambers of Commerce/COFACC) learned the best practices on how you can use social media as a powerful tool in establishing a unique online brand presence and stronger communities in your chamber and fellow organizations the past Friday morning.
HOW IMPORTANT IS A BLOG? A Blog is a place where you put the content you’re already creating thru newsletter articles, columns, editorial and events. GOOGLE watches this! This is one of the key takeaways in today’s John E. Swing Leadership Training hosted by COFACC. The guest speaker for today’s training on “Turning Social Media to Business Media” was Kyle Sexton, a brilliant marketing strategist and creator of ChamberPeople.com, the largest online social network dedicated to Chambers of Commerce.
COFACC conducts monthly virtual leadership training sessions designed to uplift the leadership and business skills of its partner chamber leaders.
Watch out for our next virtual leadership webinar on August 19, 2022. In attendance in yesterday’s training session were around 37 Chamber leaders in various States from all time zones in the U.S.

"Inspired by the recent addition of two new partner Chambers from Nevada and Michigan States, the Coalition of Filipino American Chambers of Commerce ended its Fiscal Year 2021-2022 with a big bang holding its 12th Executive Board Meeting this past Tuesday night."
