Leadership Workshop on 10/22 will Focus on How Nonprofits Can Leverage Mobile and Social
SAN RAFAEL, CA — Center for Volunteer & Nonprofit Leadership (CVNL) will be offering a special leadership workshop for nonprofits on October 22, 2015: “How the intersection of Mobile, Social and Technology is Changing Nonprofits.” Led by John Kenyon, nonprofit technology educator and strategist, the event will present ways nonprofits can integrate mobile and social media with their current programs and operations. “Technology is transforming the nonprofit sector, from the ways supporters engage, to the ways organizations fundraise, market, and manage information,” said Kenyon. “Participants will walk away with a clear set of steps to bring back to their full staff for integrating mobile and social technologies.”
“This event is ideal for any leader who wants to learn about ways they can leverage mobile tools and methods to maximize their organization’s fundraising campaigns, communications, website presence, and social engagement,” said Katelyn Willoughby-Bagley, Leadership Programs Manager at CVNL. “Mobile is now undeniably the preferred way people communicate with each other: getting up to speed with mobile strategies is essential for nonprofits and businesses alike.”
Event Details: Thursday, October 22, 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
$40 for CVNL members, $60 non-members (light breakfast provided)
