October 11, 2009 4 Comments
On Thursday, October 15, I’ll be in Columbia, Missouri for the University of Missouri’s Social Media Summit ’09. Brad J. Ward of Blue Fuego and I will be on hand to talk about social media in higher ed and beyond. [Update: Follow the conversation on Twitter with the conference hashtag: #musms09]
The following week, I’ll be in Irvine, California at the CARA (California Advancement Researchers Association) Annual Statewide Conference from October 22-23. I’m taking part in a panel discussing social media in fundraising and prospect research. Members of the panel are Jay Frost of Frost on Fundraising, Alison Becker, Senior Research Analyst at UCLA, and Vladimir Foronda, Prospect Researcher at Earthjustice.
