We have an exciting event coming up I'd like to invite
everyone to - and it's free, thanks to the support of our co-host, The
East Bay Community Foundation.
Please join Oakland Local and The East Bay Community Foundation at a talk beginning at 6:15 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 21, by Beth Kanter - a global expert in nonprofit development, social media and measurement.
According to Kanter, author of Beth's Blog and named one of the most influential women in technology by Fast Company and one of the BusinessWeek’s “Voices of Innovation for Social Media,” the answer is to improve the ways your organization builds networks and measure results. Come hear Beth share cases studies and success stories from her new book, "Measuring the Networked Nonprofit," and from her work around the world - that give you valuable, how-to insights on using data to change the world and your organization.
I'd also be appreciative if you'd
share this with your email lists and networks - we'd love to get this
internationally-known expert get a great crowd she can talk with in
