Association News: Registration now open for AAMA LinkedIn webinar

Posted on November 30th, 2017

AAMA_MerylWilliams_crop-web.jpgThose seeking to boost their profile and presence on LinkedIn, the online professional networking tool, can take advantage of a complimentary webinar offered by the American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA). Registration is now open for “7 Actions You Can Take Today to Improve and Protect Your LinkedIn Profile,” a Dec. 12 presentation given by AAMA Communications Coordinator Meryl Williams. This reprise presentation is being held for those who were unable to attend Williams’s in-person workshops at the 2017 AAMA National Fall Conference in October. Registration is open now.

“LinkedIn is an ideal place to showcase your professional background, but also a platform that might need some care when it comes to security and protecting your client list,” said Williams. “Plus, it’s a place to present yourself as a fully rounded person, and someone companies will want to have on their teams.”

Williams will share tips about what makes a good (and bad) profile picture, and why professionals should include volunteer work and other interests on their profiles. She also will review LinkedIn account settings that allow users to view the profile pages of others without detection, how to make sure participants’ profiles are not quickly passed over and how to keep competitors from poaching clients. To conclude the presentation, privacy settings for LinkedIn will be discussed.

Though many AAMA webinars are available exclusively to AAMA members and certification licensees, this presentation is open to the public. Register at
