Community Focused Brand Awareness: Utilizing Old & New Mediums for Nonprofit Storytelling

Nonprofit organizations and other community groups frequently have the best stories to tell but they often lack the resources to tell those stories properly.

On Wednesday, July 10, we are excited to host leaders in community storytelling and media personalities on how to maximize the resources you have at your disposal. Panelists will also discuss the changing technology and how to keep up with new trends.
