If you’re in the NC Triangle area and active in the marketing industry, you should know about TIMA - and get involved as a member of the community!
Predicting the Future with TIMA
It was my distinct pleasure on Wednesday to attend the year’s first panel event, “The Futurists,” hosted by the Triangle Interactive Media Association, TIMA for short (in case you didn’t know).
Have you heard of TIMA?
I hadn’t until this past Fall – it was when a friend of mine, another online diva, mentioned that her company was planning to send her to TIMA’s 2012 Internet Summit and…had I heard?…and was I going too? I literally LOL’d (laughed out loud). I was in the middle of a relocation and too busy with boxes and cleaning and packing and unpacking, not to mention staying on top of my professional objectives, to think about attending a conference that I hadn’t even heard about.
And then, while she was there, she started texting me. And getting her connections to text me.
@jabusfield You should be here #isum12
@jabusfield I hear you’re in the #socialmedia biz. Why aren’t you here? #isum12
Which bothered me enough (in a good way) to pay closer attention to what I was missing. And boy, was I ever missing out!
“TIMA is a local community of interactive marketing and design professionals dedicated to enriching members’ careers and knowledge in digital media. We unite interactive technologies and traditional marketing principles through networking and education.” (see the TIMA About Page)
And I knew that this association was something I wanted to get more involved with in the new year. No better way than to attend their January event, “The Futurists” Panel. And I give OnWired much thanks for supporting my curiosity and desire to connect with other makers-n-shakers in the local web community.
I’ve been marinating on a couple of take-aways, less about marketing specifically and more about the industry in general. I’m a New Hire to OnWired (as you may have read) and there are a lot of firms in the local area looking for new team members as well. What makes someone stand out? Who are the “desirables” within our industry?
Who do you want to hire?
