Social Media for Nonprofit Organizations

Free Registration for Nonprofit Attendees

Ongoing Workshop Series – Next Venue to be Announced Soon


Please join us for this special workshop event exploring the potential of social media as a powerful marketing, communications, relationships and advocacy platform, and a tool to drive positive action from supporters.

More than 800 nonprofit attendees have participated in the workshops to date in Wichita KS, Lawrence KS, Kansas City MO, St Louis MO, Jefferson City MO, and Springfield MO.  The workshop is being provided at no charge to nonprofit attendees in conjunction with Nonprofit Connect and Callahan Creek, as part of Social: IRL’s ongoing education and advocacy program.

The event brings together local and regional nonprofit organizations, for a day of inspired and empowered learning.  

Attendees will learn from each other – connecting, sharing, hearing case studies, discussing what’s worked and how challenges have been overcome.

Attendees will also learn through expert lead sessions covering important practical issues such as:

  • Developing social media strategy.
  • Effective approaches to integrating social media with existing initiatives.
  • Best practices.
  • Building and managing online community.
  • Creating and sharing effective social media content.
  • The power of digital storytelling.
  • Technology and trends.

A powerful combination of practical advice and support along with valuable “lessons from the front lines”.
