It has been a little over a week now since MCON 2012 occurred and the Achieve staff is still recovering from all the planning and organizing that made this event possible. We are all gathering the tiny ounces of energy left in us to give a big round of applause to some special people.

These past two months, 5 individuals came together to form the MCON 2012 Blogger and Twitter team. The team turned their focus on the promotion of this virtual conference through their blog, Twitter and Facebook. Using the social media packet we provided them, they incorporated their personality, enthusiasm and attitude to create unique, promotional strategies.

So, the Achieve staff would like to say, “Thank You,” to the MCON 2012 Blogger and Twitter Team for helping out during this busy Millennial season. You all did a great job and we hope you enjoyed your experience working with us.

Here are some of their final MCON 2012 blogs and posts. Enjoy!
