New Meetup Group for BCHC-San Diego Unit members
Post date: Jun 10, 2014 12:18:30 AM
Backcountry Horsemen of California—San Diego Unit has created a Meetup Group. Meetup is a social media site where people with common interests can connect and stay informed of local events that pertain to their interests. Social media has become increasingly vital to many people nowadays, especially younger people, who are a demographic that the unit would like to tap into. A unit member, Weston Barnes, has graciously offered to fund the first six months of our unit's Meetup site. After that, the board will decide whether to continue the program (there is no commitment). The Meetup site gives us another avenue to disseminate information about the unit and our events to people specifically interested in equine or public land issues. The unit's Meetup site is now up and running at:
Unit members are highly encouraged to join our Meetup Group to support the unit’s efforts and be able to connect with people with similar interests and find out about events and rides. Even if you’re just going for a local ride, you can post the information for others to be able to join you. The unit sees this as a valuable tool to connect with other equestrians and hopefully increase membership. Please check it out. Thank you.
