  • Hayden - thanks for the nice compliment and the blog post. If you're interested, on February 26th we're hosting an event on a similarly themed topic at the national press club in DC. http://www.forumone.com/content/calendar/detail/2682 - if you cant make it you'll still be able to find the presentations and audio here afterwards.

  • This guy on slide #29 looks familiar to me, but I don't know why... :)

    Fantastic slideshow, Kurt -- really nice work! Great tips for the nonprofit getting its feet wet in the seas of social media and the new reality of engaging your constituents to take action online. :)<br /><br/>

  • Good morning everyone, and thanks Denise for inviting me to speak here this morning. My name is Kurt Voelker, and I’ve been working with the internet and nonprofits for the past 11 years – and recently I’ve been working with Denise, Chris K, and Bill Mountjoy at AFL to help them think about the longer term strategy for their web efforts. My goal today is to share with you a few stories that illustrate the trends we’re seeing online that are helping organizations have a real impact with their work, and their communications – and hopefully leave you with a some key ingredients that you can mix into your own communications’ strategies when you get back to your office and start planning how to use the web.
