I'm Speaking at a Social Media Workshop(?)!

The Capital Area Food Bank and the Young Nonprofit Professionals Network of DC are sponsoring an online media forum for direct-service non-profits. This is just the kind of helpful information that, I hope, will spur many of our partner organizations to take the plunge into online communications. Also, I'm one of the presenters. If you're interested in coming, you should send an email to Kristin (address listed below). I hope you'll come and check it out!

Social Media at Work
Are you new to blogging and other online social media? Attend this workshop for an introduction to the new technology scene, including blogs, YouTube, Facebook, Change.org, and more! Jennifer Berk from Amplify Public Affairs, LLC will demonstrate how to use these new tools to create connections at work with colleagues, volunteers, donors, and clients. In addition, Matt Siemer from Bread for the City will provide an up-close look at how one of DC’s largest nonprofit social service organizations got started in social media and will provide concrete tips on how to set up and successfully manage a blog. This workshop is co-sponsored by the Capital Area Food Bank and the Young Nonprofit Professionals Network of DC and is offered in partnership with the Washington DCJCC and the Morris Cafritz Center for Community Service.

Date: Wednesday, March 4, 10am-12pm
Location: Washington DCJCC, 1529 16th Street NW, Washington, DC 20036
