Social Media Committee

The Social Media Committee seeks to foster an online community among NEDRA members and beyond. In doing so, the Social Media Committee hopes to initiate and engage members of NEDRA’s online community with novel ideas and online interactions about research and development/ philanthropy in general. Equally as important, the Social Media Committee hopes to aid in the marketing and information dissemination of NEDRA-related programming events, scholarships and the Annual Conference. NEDRA online community members will also get information about volunteer and sponsor opportunities, membership, as well as industry news and job opportunities.


The Social Media Committee is currently chaired by James Cheng of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.


Volunteer Tasks:

  1. Be a Twitter follower of @NEDRA_Tweets, join the NEDRA group on LinkedIn, and/or like the NEDRA Facebook page:
  • Using Twitter as the online platform of choice as the messaging hub and the LinkedIn group and the NEDRA Facebook page as the content and discussion hubs, one easy way to volunteer is to join @NEDRA_Tweets on Twitter and/or join the NEDRA LinkedIn or the NEDRA Facebook group (if not a member already)
  • Becoming an active contributor on Twitter via @NEDRA_Tweets and/or posting on the NEDRA LinkedIn or NEDRA Facebook group is a fantastic way to actively volunteer without the commitment of being on the Social Media Committee


  1. Serve as a member of the Social Media Committee to assist with various activities:
  • Host hour-long Twitter tweet chats through the year
  • Be a constant blogger of short informative posts through the NEDRA LinkedIn and/or NEDRA Facebook groups
  • Analyze API site traffic/usage for @NEDRA_Tweets, the NEDRA LinkedIn, and/or the NEDRA Facebook group pages
  • Meet monthly via phone conference with other Social Media Committee members for updates and brainstorming other uses for Twitter and LinkedIn, as well as other social media platform incorporation for the NEDRA online community.


Time Commitment:

A volunteer’s specific time commitment is estimated to be one to two hours per month on social media interaction, along with a one-half hour to one hour per month commitment for committee conferencing.
