Social media has quickly become an essential tool for nonprofit communications and promotion. At this month’s program you will learn how to effectively promote your special event through social media to get the word out, get more supporters in attendance and obtain more sponsorship dollars through higher visibility for event sponsors. Amber Recker from Cancer Services of Northeast Indiana will share her secrets for leveraging Facebook, Twitter, Eventbrite and other social platforms to create great promotion for special events.

When she joined Cancer Services in 2010, she implemented a social media plan to mesh with the agency's marketing strategy.
