Membership is small, specialized, and comprised of digital executives willing to challenge the norm to build successful businesses and lead the way in the digital space. It's a group of passionate individuals redefining an entire industry. We're pioneers, leaders and entrepreneurs, but we're also friends, competitors and collaborators.
You should get excited about anything digital and be a bit of an explorer and visionary. You're also interested in the global aspect of our business, not just locally. You should think of yourself of more than a digital person, but we do expect you to be savvy in your area of expertise. Most of all, you want to participate, in fact you are probably already thinking of ideas that will help our business, our society and our industry.
There are several ways you can join SoDA in achieving its mission. Helping us will also improve your chances of becoming a member. You can participate at our public unConference events and engage with members and other professionals through our Digital Marketing Roundtable online conferences. You can also attend some of our open events like SXSW and Adobe MAX. Don't forget to opt-in to stay current on SoDA positions, events and other opportunities to make a difference.
We've worked hard to make sure each SoDA member brings a unique asset to the society. This is achieved by being very selective. We're looking for digitally focused agencies that want to lead and applicants must be at a C or E level to be considered. Your personality counts too, if you have a good reputation that goes a long way, awards and well-known client brands don't hurt either. It helps to have a current member to sponsor your application. Membership is by invitation only, but we are always looking for the right people to build SoDA.
If you think you fit these requirements, we'd love to send you some more information.
