Time: 10:00am - 12:00pm

Presented by: Heather Mansfield of Nonprofit Tech for Good Cost: Free For NGOs to succeed on social media, they have to be good at social media and that requires a clear understanding of how, when, and why individuals engage with NGOs on social media.

Topics include:
  • How and when to post content on social media
  • Tips for growing your following on social media
  • How to convert followers into donors, event attendees, and volunteers
  • A step-by-step plan for crafting a 12-month content strategy

Natural Resources Planning Using the Open Standards for the Practice of Conservation

Friday, Jul 15, 2016 -

Time: 9:00am - 4:30pm

  Local governments are continuously faced with the challenge to sustain healthy, natural environments while also meeting the immediate needs of their communities. However urban growth and functioning natural resources do not have to compete against each other; many of these challenges can be overcome through creative partnerships, collaboration, and the identification of multi-benefit opportunities. The practice of collaborative planning and “governance” has emerged amid growing evidence that where public polices that incorporate diverse community perspectives, results are more achievable and sustainable than top-down, centralized decision-making models. This workshop will introduce concepts for collaborative multi-benefit strategic planning. Participants will be introduced to the five-step adaptive management framework referred to as “Open Standards for the Practice of Conservation”. Conservation practitioners have only recently begun using rigorous approaches to their work. In contrast, other industries, from accounting to medicine to manufacturing, have developed streamlined processes, standard practices, and knowledge banks that allow those industries to work efficiently, leverage prior knowledge, interact with each other, and prove the value of their products and services to customers and investors. Instructors: Craig Orr and Abby Hook Fee: $393.75
