Most of the members of the Social Media Club LA have businesses that keep them busy, but we also hear that some of you serve on nonprofit boards, or have side projects designed to make the world a better place. This post is for you, as well as those of you with nonprofit types in your networks.

Social Media for Nonprofits is a nationwide conference series that provides nonprofit leaders with the tools and resources needed to create, manage, and maximize their social media presence.

We’re heading to Los Angeles next Monday, August 22nd, with a program that will once again share practical tips and tools for fundraising, marketing, and advocacy. Our SF, DC, and NYC conferences were all sold out and received rave reviews, and we need your help to ensure a packed house at UCLA.

We’re giving away two tickets to the SMCLA members who get the most comments or likes on a Facebook post on our Wall, or who get the most ReTweets on a message with the #sm4np hashtag.

Come join us for a “Twitter Meets TED” format featuring top authors and experts, or you can just show up for the networking reception and book release party for Nonprofit Management 101. We’ve got top brass from Facebook, LinkedIn, and Causes, plus leaders of PETA, NTEN, and social fundraising platforms like Fundly and Razoo.

See you on the 22nd and please contact us with any questions or suggestions!
