Are you ready to move your nonprofit board towards online tools and social media? Digital skills are quickly becoming a fundamental part of all nonprofits, so it is essential that you integrate them across the entire organization and into every area of the nonprofit’s business model, including board engagement. Online strategies are not just for fundraising anymore!
Please join Jeanne Allen for a webinar that will identify how you can get your board actively involved in using social media and other online and collaboration tools. Not only will we explore examples of how to use these tools in conducting board business, recruiting new members, offering orientation, communicating within the board, and assessing board effectiveness, but key board responsibilities will be specifically matched to various social sharing and collaboration tools. Finally, we’ll identify some easy starting points and share real examples from nonprofits so you’ll get a chance to see how other organizations are experimenting. This presentation is geared for those who work directly with boards as well as board members themselves.
