Advanced Social Media Strategies for Nonprofits

On May 4, Citizen Schools presented a social media panel hosted by the McColl Center for Visual Art in Charlotte. Over 60 event participants from local nonprofits and community groups learned how to use social media to advance their organization’s online media strategies. Our panel of social media experts included Aleigh Acerni of Goodwill, Desiree Kane of CLT Blog and Hip Communications, Eric Frazier of the Charlotte Observer, Jenifer Daniels of the Charlotte Mecklenburg Library. The event was moderated by Rich Tucker of Travel Leaders Leisure Group.

Event participants joined a live Twitter stream to share panel information in real time. Within 10 minutes, #whatsnextsm became a trending topic, reaching more than 116,000 followers before the end of the discussion.
