Friday, February 5,  9am – noon, Residence Inn by Marriott is pleased to host:

Social Media Workshop (Beginner/Intermediate Level) – Facilitated by Heather Hermen, Director of Public Relations, Sedona Chamber of Commerce.    

Heather is considered to be an expert in Social Media and has facilitated many workshops over the past year.  Heather is a native of Arizona and has lived in Sedona for 10 years. After completing a trade school in Powell, Wyoming she made her move back to Arizona and began working for an adventure based company. After holding management, sales & marketing and event planning positions in Sedona, she was offered the Public Relations Management position at the Sedona Chamber of Commerce more than a year ago and now serves as the Director of Public Relations. She has brought the Sedona Chamber of Commerce to a technologically advanced state with innovative and creative Public Relations opportunities for the community and the Chamber members. She happily enjoys the Sedona experience everyday with her husband of seven years Mike, and three year old son Nicholas.

Whether your career is in retail, real estate, hospitality, government or service, this workshop is a MUST!  You will learn the technical steps and marketing principles of Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, YouTube and LinkedIn.  How to set up your accounts, why it’s important for your business, how to manage your time and what the future holds for Social Media Marketing. 

Workshop Fee is $100 and includes take home material.  Bring your laptop if you want but it’s not necessary. 

Pre-registration is required.  Call or email Heather directly at hhermen@sedonachamber.com or 928-204-1123 ext. 170.  Payment can be made by check or credit card.

We only have space for a maximum of 25 attendees.   After 25 are registered, we will begin a waiting list and will schedule a second workshop in the near future.  Please register as soon as possible to secure your spot!

It is hard to beat the beauty that only Mother Nature can offer. See Watson Lake in Winter in this FLICKR photo set.

Why “Prescott Rocks?” Because of so many things that this blog will explore:

  • Four-hundred fifty miles of trails in Forest Services lands
  • 28+ miles of Prescott trails (click for information)
  • Our mild four-season climate (often 20 degrees cooler than the Phoenix area)
  • Opportunities for bicycle riders of all skill levels (click for information then click on Bicycling Opportunities Map)
  • The Worlds Oldest Rodeo — the 123rd annual rodeo starts on June 28, 2010!
  • Jazz aficionado? Plan to attend the Prescott Arizona Jazz Summit August 27-29.

Please join us at a meeting next Saturday January 23rd from 1-4 pm at the Marriott Residence Inn on Highway 69 (the new hotel across the street and towards Prescott from Costco). 

Chris Hosking, Greg, Christophe from Raven Singletrack and Prescott City Councilwoman Lora Lopas  have talked with IMBA over the past month or so about what it would take to have Prescott become an IMBA Ride Center.  Prescott seem:to have most of what it takes:

  • Great variety of trails for all abilities
  • Fantastic Bike Shops
  • Awesome after ride hangouts
  • People with a Passion for Riding

IMBA is coming to Prescott to give a short presentation followed by a group discussion on how to bring our Mountain Biking Community together as one collective group.  We think Prescott has a lot to offer and we like to WOW them with a great showing.
