Hi Brian & all,
Sharing some resources around SocMed policies - not quite sure what you 
envision for the scope/work products of this group, but thought this might 
help.

http://socialmediagovernance.com/policies.php is a library of social media 
policy docs.
You can filter to show only government/non-profit:  
http://socialmediagovernance.com/policies.php?f=5
If you know govt organizations that have developed social media policy, 
but are not listed, please encourage them to submit their policies for 
inclusion on this list.  It is a great one-stop, but I'm sure there is 
lots of good info out there that is not yet included on the list.

Here are a few more:

(primarily blogging policies)
http://government20bestpractices.pbworks.com/
http://www.socialmediatoday.com/SMC/155843
http://govsocmed.pbworks.com/Web-2-0-Governance-Policies-and-Best-Practices 
(I think you will need a password to get to this one...)

We (Web Manager University 
http://www.usa.gov/webcontent/resources/training/university.shtml) also 
just conducted a training session for USGovt web teams yesterday about 
social media policy, featuring the State of Massachusetts and the 
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).  You can view the webinar and 
presentation slides here:  
http://www.usa.gov/webcontent/wmu/newmedia/spring2010/socialmediaguidelines.shtml

The State of Mass. has developed guidelines for using specific types of 
social media tools, as well as guidance specifically to help gov't 
attorneys navigate tricky legal issues: 
http://www.mass.gov/itd/socialmedia   They are a very good model for US 
State governments to follow.

EPA has released interim guidance to help employees determine what is OK 
or not when using social media to represent their agency - as a part of 
their job, or on their own: 
http://yosemite.epa.gov/OEI/webguide.nsf/socialmedia/representing_epa_online

We also have some resources on webcontent.gov 
http://www.usa.gov/webcontent/technology/other_tech.shtml to help USGovt 
agencies implement social media tools.  The Social Media Sub-Council of 
the Federal Web Managers Council has a wiki http://govsocmed.pbworks.com/ 
where they have posted an extensive library of research, projects, etc.

Don't know if I will be able to make today's meeting, but wanted to share 
these resources w/the group.

Thanks!
-Rachel
