Sierra Club and IAVA Build Engaged Communities


Published on

At their best, communities are places where we make connections and share knowledge, stories and support. They are places where we both grow, learn and become something greater than we were. And while communities historically have been based largely around geography, today social, mobile and cloud technologies are changing how and where communities are formed and how people relate and connect to fulfill their goals.

Join us to learn how Salesforce Communities can help you better engage with your volunteers, members, supporters, employees and more. Discover how Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America is using Communities to build the modern veteran's hall. And dive into The Sierra Club's vision for engaging their community online to catalyze action to protect the environment.
