AACR announces its bi-annual conference on Corporate Civic Responsibility in Las Vegas, NV

December 7,2017


Las Vegas NV- December 7, 2017: The Washington DC based Association of Americans for Civic Responsibility (AACR) held its Bi-annual Roundtable on "Advancing Corporate Civic Responsibility through Social Media" at the Satay Restaurant and Event Center in Las Vegas, Nevada on December 7, 2017. The conference was attended by leaders of social media companies, NGO representatives and small businesses. The panelists and speakers included business leaders from Las Vegas, Chicago and various philanthropists and community service leaders.

Hon. Steve Seroka, the City of Las Vegas Councilman and a highly decorated veteran who is a military strategist and commander, welcomed the invited guests. Rudy Pamintuan, CEO of Sherman Consulting, an IT and Communication firm and a former White House appointee introduced the panelists. He told the audience that there has never been a medium like social media to spread any message across the world, instantaneously and effectively whether that message is good or bad.

Joseph Melookaran opened the discussion with social media’s transformational effect on the civic responsibility by engaging social media in “giving back” to community. The speakers exhorted businesses and NGOs for an enhanced linkage with the community through “giving back” and closer engagement through effective adoption of social media. “While larger corporations have better framework for civic involvement capitalizing on social media strategy, small entities are lacking that awareness and needs lot more guidance” Ms. Dube said.

Dr. Joy Cherian who advocated the need for having more forums and framework to exchange experiences of civic engagement and education on civic responsibility by every business and non-business entities, expressed hope that more forums like this should be organized at universities and sponsored at the governmental levels so that it will become more widely accepted and become part of the fabric of our culture and values.
