Norma-web Top 11 Things for Chamber Government Affairs Tweeps to Do When Twitter is Down

By: Norma Johnson
VP of Legislative Affairs
Lubbock (TX) Chamber of Comemrce

  1. Go hang around the membership director’s office and ask “Has anyone quit because of our stance on xyz or endorsement of Joe Blow lately?†It will be painful for you but cathartic for the membership director. (Gov affairs folks are a giving people).
  2. Go to the finance director’s office and ask how much your division lacks being a “revenue generating†division this budget year. (Same pain for you, same cathartic exercise for finance director as above).
  3. Type up minutes from the last 3 lege affairs committee meetings (you know you’ve been putting them off).
  4. Go hang out at City Hall whether there’s a reason for you to be there or not. See how long it takes for rumors to start about what you’re doing down there.
  5. Go to other Chambers’ sites and see what can be stolen (I mean, “modeledâ€) from them.
  6. Read that 1,000 page health care bill that John Conyers didn’t.
  7. Send flowers to Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison from Tx Gov Rick Perry and to Rick from KBH. (Can’t we all just get along?)
  8. Finally go to some blog sites and take time to read the entire blog to learn how to blog like Sarah Hubbard! - www.sarahhubbard.com
  9. Go outside. Listen to the real and original “tweetsâ€.
  10. Waste time creating “top things†lists.
  11. Go to the Milwaukee CVB site to prepare for ACCE next year!!!
