Looking for input about NPO Boards and Social Networking

August 5, 2009 at 3:37 pm Leave a comment

When it comes to nonprofit use of social media, most of what I find is related to use by staff and front line volunteers. The role of the Board of Directors in a mature nonprofit is different than a staff role. Are there good (or even bad) examples of actual Board level strategies for using social networking to advance the work of the Board? Do these strategies differ from staff use or is it the same? Are NPO boards (as an entity) even using social networking as a specific tool?
As we plan a Board strategy session on this topic, I would love to get input. There’s the survey here, but even more so, I’d love thoughts and comments.
Thanks, in advance!

July 9 Winnipeg Foundation Presentation

Recent Workshop Feedback

"Wow – great presentation today! I came into this workshop thinking I knew enough about social media to kick start the organization I work for, but once the presentation began I was immediately taken aback at how much I didn’t know as well. It was a great learning experience and opened the doors to many ideas I now have – in fact I am having a meeting tomorrow with the rest of my colleagues to discuss these ideas! " - Randi-Leigh Michaniuk, Winnipeg, Manitoba
