May Training - New Date!

Storytelling is an innovative communication tool that is particularly well suited to inspire and build relationships. With a lot of competition in our social media ridden world, good storytelling communicates what your organization stands for and how it supports the community. The interactivity of social media allows users to be directly involved in such stories. For nonprofits, digital storytelling can be a promising tool for including supporters, stakeholders, and others who may not know your organization's role in the community.

Panelists to be announced soon.

New Date: Thursday, May 18, 2023

11:30 a.m. - 1 p.m. (PDT)
