The National Investor Relations Institute president and CEO Jeff Morgan has said before that he thinks of social media as "a bigger microphone" for IR pros to get their message out. Now NIRI is stepping up to the mic with eGroups, small social networks within NIRI which will give members the opportunity to find other members with similar concerns or issues and allow them to share ideas. EGroups is currently in beta.
"NIRI is trying to continually evolve," said Morgan. "We're providing a platform so that members can learn, which is what they come to NIRI for."
NIRI also launched a revamped version of its Web site, the first in over a decade in July.
A bit of an aside, there's news here and here that the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) won't issue proxy access rules that will make it easier for shareholders to nominate directors to public companies for the 2010 proxy season. As reported in PRWeek, NIRI is in favor of an overhaul of the system.
