Tweets & selfies: The best ways to get social at the meeting

0820-Selfie 2If you’re not following AAD Meeting News on Twitter yet (@AADMtgs), now is the perfect time to do so. This is especially aimed at those attending the Summer Academy Meeting because Twitter will be the main source for updated news and information throughout the course of the meeting. All attendees are encouraged to join the conversation and share their experiences with the hashtag #AAD15 for all meeting-related tweets.

Of course, the meeting wouldn’t be quite as much fun without some friendly competition, so we’re pleased to announce the return of the ever-popular Selfie Contest. To participate, follow our Twitter feed and submit as many selfies of you and your friends as possible showcasing your Summer Meeting experience.

Submissions must incorporate the hashtag #AADselfie to be eligible to win, and should mention @AADMtgs somewhere in the tweet to ensure we receive your photos. Selfies can be taken anywhere in the convention center area, the hotel, or on the streets of New York during your time off after sessions.

NOTE: Photos may not be taken at any time inside meeting sessions/workshops. This is a general rule of all Academy meetings, and any submission that violates Academy rules will be disqualified.

Again, there is no limit to how many selfies you can submit, so make sure your photos are as unique and creative as possible to outshine the competition! One winner, who will be chosen the week after the meeting, will win  their very own selfie stick.
