PortlandSocietyPage.com, the free public platform for nonprofit news, is excited to be a part of the on-line communication workshop: “Communicating for Good: From Goals and Strategy to Brave Authentic Stories.” The workshop, presented by Meyer Memorial Trust, is on Thursday, July 19, 2012. Join us! Here are all the details from Meyer Memorial Trust’s Director of Communications & Learning, Marie Deatherage.

Meyer Memorial Trust, NTEN and PAGATIM are joining forces to offer up resources and tools that can help nonprofit organizations make the most of online opportunities for reaching audiences. You might well be amazed at the wealth of resources available locally that can help you map out a communications plan and tell your stories like you’ve never done before. This gathering will feature keynote presentations by Amy Sample Ward, currently at NTEN and formerly NetSquared, and Laura Mansfield, Co-Founder Chief Visionary Officer at PAGATIM. In addition to these great speakers, we’ll have a resource fair where you can learn about related services and products and meet the folks offering them.

8:30 to noon

Space is limited, registration is required. Register HERE

Meyer Memorial Trust is covering nearly all the cost of the event, but we are charging a nominal $5 registration fee to cover the cost of refreshments. [In addition, we’ve had problems in past events with so many folks enthusiastically signing up as soon as an event is announced that all spaces are taken, we have to turn people away, but then a sizable enough number of people don’t show up and seats end up being wasted. Nothing we’ve tried has worked in the past, this is our next experiment.

Laura Mansfield has an award winning background in broadcast journalism, documentary filmmaking, non-profit management, and social entrepreneurship. Laura and her aura is a power to be reckoned with as her ability to connect with people and capture their story is like no other. She is determined that ‘brave authentic stories will change the world’.

Amy Sample Ward is NTEN’s membership director, blogger, facilitator and trainer having worked with groups and spoken at events in the US, UK and around the world. In 2009, she co-authored Social by Social, a handbook in using social technologies for social impact, and has contributed to various other publications about social media. She is a conversation-starter and thought-leader, writing about strategic uses of new technologies for communities and organizations on her blog and the Stanford Social Innovation Review.
