2013-10-22 10.20.22 amEach year, more than 700 nonprofit leaders from around the world gather with an impressive array of experts to discuss the newest thinking and practices in nonprofit governance and solutions to current leadership issues at the BoardSource Leadership Forum.

This year, the Rebecca Gordon Group is proud to announce our very own Rebecca Gordon has been selected to share her social insight on taming the social media beast through “Creating Something Out of Nothing: Social Media in the Nonprofit Sector” at the 2013 BoardSource Leadership Forum, in Los Angeles, CA.

“Social media communications offers nonprofits an opportunity to more easily do what we are good at,” says Gordon, “Connect and cultivate communities, partners, donors, and friends, who are the lifeblood of meeting our missions and changing the world.”

Gordon’s session is designed to pinpoint common social media related leadership challenges in the nonprofit sector, while providing lighthearted, workable solutions that will garner results and an overall return of investment. Highlights are to include the importance of “Understanding Your Audience,” “Embracing the Editorial Calendar,” and the importance of a solid social media strategy.
