The White House and LinkedIn jointly announced this week that President Obama will be participating in a virtual Town Hall meeting using LinkedIn next Monday:
On Monday, September 26th, President Obama will travel to Mountain View, California to participate in “Putting America Back to Work: LinkedIn Presents a Town Hall with President Obama.” At the town hall, the President will answer questions about job creation and the economy from a live audience made up of LinkedIn members and employees, as well as questions that have been submitted from LinkedIn members across the country.
In conjunction with the President’s visit, LinkedIn has launched a community focused on job creation and the economy [Putting America Back to Work 2011]. Through this group, people are invited to join the conversation with President Obama by submitting questions for the town hall, contributing comments, and sharing content with their own network. This group will serve as a platform for LinkedIn users to continue the discussion on putting America back to work and provide opportunities for LinkedIn members to engage with the White House and Administration officials following the town hall. People can submit questions for the President HERE and watch the town hall live on LinkedIn and WhiteHouse.gov/live.
LinkedIn is the world’s largest professional network with more than 120 million members worldwide. At “Putting America Back to Work: LinkedIn Presents a Town Hall with President Obama,” the President will hear directly from LinkedIn members who range from small business owners and employees to community college students to veterans.
