PDXTech4Good August Meetup
Lucky Labrador Brew Pub

This gathering of PDXTech4Good focuses on the smooth integration of social media into your organization. We've heard all the excuses for putting off a social media presence a thousand times: the ED thinks you'll spend way too much time on Facebook, the Board doesn't think it's going to give any results, your demographic is not represented on social media, etc. This session will be all about how to address these issues and bring ...your nonprofit all the benefits of social media.

Facebook for Nonprofit Organizations
Lucky Labrador Brew Pub

Maybe your organization has already taken the Facebook plunge. Or, perhaps it's about to. Either way, building a Facebook presence for your nonprofit requires a whole lot more than the simple "build it and they will come" approach.

Join us for this month's PDXTech4Good meetup where we'll delve into the details of cultivating, managing and growing your organization's Facebook presence. Together, we'll explore topics ranging from engagement strategies and metrics to page administration and policies.
