On April 2, Philly Net Tuesday is thrilled to welcome Amy Sample Ward, coauthor of the just-published book Social Change Anytime Everywhere: How to implement online multichannel strategies to spark advocacy, raise money and engage your community. Drawing from her deep experience working with technology for nonprofits, Amy will show how organizations are successfully integrating online multichannel efforts into their work, and how you can craft an “Anytime Everywhere” campaign to achieve your nonprofit or social change goals and objectives.
Doors will open at 6:00 PM at the Friends Center, 1501 Cherry Street, and the program will begin promptly by 6:30. Can’t make it to downtown Philly? Go to http://phillynetsquared.org/live to watch the live Internet stream, and share your comments or questions via the Twitter backchannel (hashtag #phlnet2).
Amy Sample Ward is an author and speaker, and works with nonprofits of all sizes around the world to use technology to enhance their community impact. Amy is a former community organizer for NetSquared, having supported local NetSquared groups around the world, and currently serves as co-organizer of 501 Tech NYC (the NetSquared affiliate in New York). She is the author of a highly respected blog on nonprofit technology, and somehow finds time for her day job as membership director at NTEN (Nonprofit Technology Network).
Published just last month, Social Change Anytime Everywhere has received rave reviews from media and readers alike. Coauthors Allyson Kapin and Amy Sample Ward describe in a readable and highly practical style how organizations can effectively plan and implement online multichannel strategies of “Anytime Everywhere” to advocate for their causes, raise money and engage more deeply with their communities. Try to get the book from Amazon (or elsewhere) and start reading it before April 2, or buy a copy that evening.
RSVP’s via Meetup or Facebook are requested for planning purposes, but not required. This Net Tuesday promises to be fun and very useful. Lite fare will be available.
Thanks once again to the American Friends Service Committee for sponsorship.
Philly Net Tuesday on July 10 (note date change due to holiday) will be about how nonprofits and social change initiatives can enhance their causes with “gamification”. Gamification is about creating and using social games in new ways to help reach and engage communities, raise funding and support, and advocate.
Nathan Solomon, founder of the Philadelphia Game Lab, will provide an overview of this emerging field and show examples about how organizations are currently using games. And we’ll discuss how YOU can use gamification to help YOUR cause or nonprofit.
Who should come to this event?
- Nonprofit staff and activists who want to better understand how games can help their causes.
- Techies and consultants who want to learn more about how this technology is being used in the nonprofit world and beyond.
- Anyone who wants to see how social games can be used for new and socially useful purposes.
The event will begin at 6:00 on Tuesday, July 10 at the Friends Center, 1501 Cherry Street. (NOTE this date is the second Tuesday of the month because the first Tuesday’s proximity to July 4.)
RSVP’s are helpful for planning purposes, though not required.
Can’t make it downtown? No worries. Watch the Internet stream at http://phillynetsquared.org/live and add your questions and comments on Twitter with the hashtag #phlnet2.
