Social Media for Non-Profits and Social Good – A special forum to be hosted by Social: IRL in Wichita, Kansas

On Thursday, May 3, Social: IRL will be hosting a special full-day interactive workshop, “Social Media for Non-Profits and Social Good.”

Taking place in Wichita, Kansas, the goal of the event is to bring together local and regional non-profit organizations, for a day that combines inspiration with learning focused on the potential of social media to be used as a powerful marketing, communications and relationships platform.  The main focus will be on non-profits, but the day’s takeaways will be valuable for any business or organization.

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 social media integration, community management, monitoring, relationship management, handling negative PR and crisis response, planning and strategy, best practices, effective content creation, and content marketing.

Our goal at Social: IRL is for as many local and regional non-profit organizations as possible to be able to participate in the event without having to pay registration fees. To help achieve this goal we are reaching out to sponsors to help cover expenses. We are re-structuring event sponsorships so that each sponsor will not only receive the typical branding and online and offline recognition, but with every sponsorship the sponsor will receive their own event registration and will also receive additional registrations to be awarded on their behalf to non-profit organizations wanting to attend.

For the sponsors, not only will they have supported and made possible non-profit participation in the event, but for themselves, participating in this inspirational day of learning will provide many valuable takeaways that can also be applied in their own businesses.

Full details of the event will be announced in the next week. Meantime, event registrations are open. Attendees are encouraged to sign up early as a limited number of spaces will be available.  Non-profit organizations may register up to two attendees at no charge. Other attendees may register at a subsidized full-day registration rate.

Potential sponsors may also contact us to learn more about supporting and participating in the event. Thank you to those sponsors already committed to making the event a success: Cox Communications, Delta Dental of Kansas, UMB Financial Corp, Colab Digital, Shay Chic Events and Design, Northstar Comfort Services.
