Social Media Club of Des Moines (SMCDSM) Kick-Off Event

I'd like to invite all of you to the Social Media Club of Des Moines (SMCDSM) Kick-Off Event. Though in existence for the past two years, we've been quiet for the past few months as we regroup and work on aligning our local Chapter with the National Organization so we can create a sustainable and viable Club for many years to come.

Won't you join us for a social event on Wednesday, September 12th at Exile Brewing Company (1514 Walnut Street, DSM) from 5-7pm? Claim your ticket (the event is free, but we'd like to keep a headcount) via and then like the SMCDSM Facebook Fan Page and share our event with your friends.

Hope to see you there!
