Toronto’s second ever FREE conference for social media professionals in the non profit sector returns on Wednesday Nov 7 2012 6-9pm at CSI Annex. Join us for a range of talks, a Q&A panel session and, importantly, drinks & food.
Thanks to the generous support Good Works
, our headline sponsor for continuing to support the non-profit community, enabling non-profit staff to attend for free.
Be Good Be Social is for non-profit staff interested in using social media, and is for the beginner as much as the digital die-hard. We hope to bring together people interested in social media for social good, whether you work or volunteer for a non-profit, charity or social enterprise.
You’ll get a chance to see how other Canadian non-profit organizations are using tools such as Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and YouTube, as well as blogging platforms to bring about real change and raise funds.
