Outreach for a Cause conference
Learn the importance of the mobile web, partnering with churches, and reaching out to Sacramento’s diverse population at the first Outreach for a Cause conference on Friday, Aug. 17 from 10:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. at Sierra Health Foundation, 1321 Garden Highway, Sacramento.
This conference, with its theme of engage, connect, inspire, is geared toward non-profit and cause organization outreach staff and volunteers, and provides a forum for attendees to discuss, collaborate and improve their outreach efforts in Sacramento. The conference is unique in that it is the only one in this area that focuses “solely on non-profit public relations or outreach,” according to sponsor and host, Blank Notebook Creative.
The featured keynote speaker will be Scott Eggert, owner of Clickspring and vice president of the Sacramento Social Media Club, who will speak about the use of the mobile web as it pertains to non-profit organizations. The conference will also host individual presentations and panel discussions. Abby Fox, communication manager for Church Volunteer Network, will present on collaborations between churches and non-profits in the community, and Jennifer Armitage, owner of Blank Notebook Creative, will discuss effective online tools for non-profit outreach.
Included in the $65 price is a catered lunch, a binder with outreach resources, a 2-1-1 Sacramento directory, a free copy of Client Tickler software and the opportunity to engage with speakers and area non-profits.
The full-day conference is hosted by Blank Notebook Creative, a consulting firm specializing in public relations for small non-profits, and My Sister’s House, the Central Valley non-profit that addresses domestic violence within the Asian/Pacific Islander community.
