Second series of global conferences coming to 11 cities this year

Facebook now boasts over 901 million active members, making it equivalent to the world’s third largest country. But how exactly can nonprofits use it and other platforms to raise money, grow their base of supporters, change policy, and recruit volunteers and board members?
After answering this question at eight of nine sold-out conferences and earning a 92% approval rating from over 2,500 nonprofit representatives in our first conference series, we realized that there are a lot more community leaders out there still wrestling with this question, and we’re here to help.
To meet this huge need, we’re doubling our audience and impact, with plans to tour 12 cities across three countries in our second series, enabling us to reach over 5,000 nonprofits in person. See below for dates or visit http://SM4NP.org.
We’ll continue to maintain our strong focus on sharing practical, actionable insights rather than vague concepts and theory, and do our best to keep the conferences accessible: Tickets cost just $95 – $175 and include access to the full-day programs, plus breakfast and lunch.
