Realizing that young professionals are more likely to be reached via the web, the Silicon Valley Chapter has increased its online presence through Meetup and Facebook. Their Meetup Group has allowed for new individuals to find the chapter by way of location and shared interest. And advertising on Facebook has allowed the chapter to reach potential new members through targeted ads. In the last year, the Chapter has more than doubled its contact list – from 120 to 300 contacts! Congratulations Silicon Valley!
