June 30th is Mashable's official Social Media Day and thanks to the exceptional work of Serving Social to kickstart Texas, #SMDay is upon us.
We're warming up the meetup with a get together at the Microsoft Community Theater at La Cantera.
Brad Voeller, founder and CEO of DCI (Digital Creative Institute) and Laura Calo, Director with MediaTech Ventures, will be hosting a discussion: Social Media for Good Dialogue.

As well as working directly with MediaTech Ventures, Laura serves as a a communications and humanities visiting professor with DeVry University and Adjuct Faculty with the University of Phoenix.
The dialogue will allow participants an opportunity to hear and share their experiences with social media, trends, successes and how their organizations have been able to do great things with social media. We will also highlight a few key social media companies that will share what they do to build community and impact change through using social media.
