Team Developmental Training at New York City Social Media For NonProfits, 2015

“It may be that you are not yourself luminous, but you are a conductor of light.” - Arthur Conan Doyle / Sherlock Holme 

On Tuesday, July 21st, members of Pan African CDI's Outreach Committee and the Executive Director and co-founder participated in a developmental informational social media conference held at NYU Kimmel Center for University Life.  The annual program was organized by Social Media For Nonprofit, with previous locations including Washington,DC., Dallas, Austin, Silicon Valley, Boston, San Francisco, and finally New York City. From workshops and hands-on training on essential social media applications, i.e Periscope, to the interactive sessions with other professionals in the nonprofit sector, Social Media For Nonprofits provided us with key tools that will enable Pan African CDI to strengthen its outreach strategy and improve it’s on and off platform advocacy for low-income and African immigrant communities.

Social Media for Nonprofits provides social media training to help nonprofits leverage social media for cause awareness, engagement with stakeholders, fundraising and advocacy.  The conference series, their signature program, is dedicated to social media for social good and to date has earned a 96.5% approval rating from over 8,000 nonprofit leaders across the USA, India and Canada. Doing away with abstract concepts and theory, their focus is on sharing practical tips and tools for fundraising, marketing, and advocacy with nonprofit decision-makers.
