Clubhouse is the newest social media platform, perfect for those who are “Zoom”ed out. An audio-only (currently invitation-only) platform, Clubhouse highlights organic conversations with thousands of rooms focused on niche topics, including procurement!
Maine CPO, Jaime Schorr, participates as a regular in the recurring Wednesday procurement chats, which feature five to six regular practitioners from different levels of government (state/counties/District of Columbia) “on stage” with another five to 10 people who come in and out based on schedule and topic. There is no limit on the number of listeners. Jaime compares the experience to a conference room breakout. And because not everyone is on Clubhouse, the first half-hour of each week’s conversation is recorded as a podcast, “Public Procurement Change Agents,” available on Google.
While still limited to Apple app users, a Clubhouse Android app is coming. Jaime has a limited number of invitations available, but she graciously opens them to NASPO members, first come, first served.
