JD LasicaOn June 29, I’ll be part of a great gathering in San Francisco, kicking off a seven-city conference series called Social Media for Nonprofits.

The full-day conference is less about concepts and theory than practical tips and tools for fundraising, marketing and advocacy. The day includes keynotes, workshops by leading experts and interactive roundtables.

Speakers include Guy Kawasaki, author of the new book “Enchantment,” Beth Kanter of Zoetica, Susan Gordon of Causes.com, Jonah Sachs of Free Range Studios, Charles Porch of Facebook, Darian Heyman, Susan Tenby of TechSoup Global and Kellie McElhaney, founding faculty director of the Center for Responsible Business at the Haas School of Business at UC Berkeley.

I’ll be speaking on the subject, “How to activate your supporters to take action,” a condensed version of the Socialbrite series of Social Media for Social Good bootcamps we’ve put on across the country.

A book release party for local author and former Craigslist Foundation executive director Darian Rodriguez Heyman’s new book, “Nonprofit Management 101,” will follow the conference at 5:30-8:30 pm.

This is the kickoff program in a seven-city series, which is also touring Washington, DC (July 14), New York City (Aug. 4), Los Angeles (Aug. 22), Seattle, Chicago and Atlanta.

JD Lasica, founder and former editor of Socialbrite, is co-founder of Cruiseable. Contact JD or follow him on Twitter or Google Plus.

    When Heyman, who is the minority in his self-described minority-owned consultancy, focuses on anything other than doing the one thing he’s good at (smoking cannabis), does he have any inkling of how ridiculous he is? One wonders what other sanctimonious and vacuous projects he will undertake – and list on his email sign off!
