ALEXANDRIA, La.--The Central Louisiana Chamber of Commerce is partnering with the Gold, Weems, Bruser, Sues & Rundell Law Firm to provide a 5-part series of workshops on social media law.

The program, "Conquering Social Media," will coach many businesses about social media as the new medium to interact with their customers and preparing for legal risks.

The objectives of this program series include:

  • Demystifying social media.
  • Understanding the benefits and common pitfalls with the use of social media.
  • Learning how to create a social media strategy by creating guidelines for employees, protecting propriety or confidential information, and managing your reputation.

Module 2 - July 28: "Social Media Policies for Employees"
Module 3: August 15: "Top Social Media Disasters"
Module 4: September 19: "Can We Be Friends?"
