Net Tuesday Philly Meetup Message Board › Philly Net Tuesday April 5: Announcing 3 local nonprofits for our Crowdsourc
Upper Darby, PA
We are thrilled to announce the three local nonprofits that will be the focus of our Crowdsourcing Change event on April 5:
In this highly participatory format representatives of each of these Philly cultural and scientific icons will present their goals and current social web strategies to the crowd (that’s us!). Then, in a facilitated discussion, attendees share advice, perspectives and feedback to help these nonprofits move their social dimension forward. (See more information about these organizations, and their social web objectives, below.)
The event will begin at 6:00 PM on Tuesday, April 5 at the Friends Center, 1501 Cherry Street. Plus, we’ll be streaming the event live over the Internet (via http://phillynetsquared.org/live) and supporting a Twitter backchannel (hashtag: #phlnet2), so our crowd can extend beyond our walls and city.
This is a wonderful learning and sharing opportunity for everyone who attends, as we share our best current thinking; and just maybe help these popular organizations better fulfill their important missions.
