Fordham University: Social Media Workshop for Non-Profit Leaders

Social Media Communications and the Not-For-Profit Leader: Representing your Organization Yourself, #NoFilter

Leaders of non-profit organizations are charged with many tasks. All include representing the organization in the best possible light. So why defer to a junior team member to speak most loudly for you? Learning about social media channels and creating your own accounts can keep you in touch with employees, board members, partner organizations and constituents.

This three-hour hands on workshop on social media communication will walk you through best practices for non-profit professionals from organic search returns on Google, to social media channels: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and professional platforms including LinkedIn and GuideStar.

Date: TK.
