Pinterest! Interested?

Those of you who attended our September 2017 program learned how Pinterest can be an important tool for agencies and groups (like ARMA chapters) to connect with existing audience and reach out to new groups and potential members or customers.

ARMA Puget Sound Chapter Board members Karen Hague, Audrey Houston, and Susan Haigh just set up a Pinterest account for our own chapter, where we will post things like tools and tips, ARMA events, and ‘RIM-shots’ of humor, just for fun!

Check it out, share a pin or two, try out this newfangled (to most of us) tool, and help spread the word about ARMA and the Puget Sound Chapter!
