An Association's Facebook Connection

I arrived for a meeting just as another meeting was ending today. The local president introduced me to one of the committee members: "We first met on Facebook, she said she wanted to get involved, so I appointed her to this committee."

This is how social media can be used to identify association members willing to participate. But it may take people with power being present to make those connections. And are they present?

Maybe we should ask Presidents to appoint at least 3 members to committees during the year that they only know from a social media site?
