This new online social media presence gives CMC another way to make connections with stakeholders and network members, provide dynamic links and updates, and inform audiences about our activities and services. The LinkedIn page adds to CMC’s suite of communication vehicles which include Twitter – @cmcghg, the website – cmcghg.com, the newsletter – CMC Update and the Carbon Commons.
HQP volunteers to create page
Instrumental in the development of the page was Ali Ebrahimi, an HQP working with Dr. Amy Bazylak at the University of Toronto, who volunteered to build the site.
“On LinkedIn everyone is associated through their professional affiliations – so the purpose of the site is to introduce CMC to everyone on LinkedIn and gain recognition for our work,” he says when asked why he volunteered.
Ebrahimi is currently a PhD candidate in the Mechanical and Industrial Engineering Department at the U of T where he is a member of the TEAM laboratory (Thermofluids for Energy and Advanced Materials). He expects to graduate in the fall of 2014.
Volunteers always welcomed at CMC
CMC welcomes suggestions for improvements or offers to volunteer from HQP, investigators or other interested stakeholders.
We are currently seeking volunteers to work shifts at the May 27 to 29 conference in Banff. Volunteers are needed to help with set up of the poster rooms and with the registration desk. Volunteers will not be asked to work during the conference plenary sessions or at both poster sessions. If you are interested, please contact Ruth Klinkhammer at email@example.com
