SPECIAL NOTE

May '12 Meetup

Our May '12 meetup was jam packed with social goodness. We counted over 65 people who came out to hear Ryan Sauers' presentation entitled "Everyone Is In Sales" based on his new book that came out earlier this year. Based on the tweeting going on before, during and afterwards, the subject and the speaker were well received.

Book Review: The Future of Nonprofits - Innovate and Thrive in the Digital Age

“The Future of Nonprofits” by David J. Neff and Randal C. Moss (no relation) reads like an instructional handbook on how to bring a nonprofit into the 21st Century by using processes, new media and methods of thinking to avoid becoming obsolete and/or ineffective.  The authors pack several pages of interviews from people in various positions --marketing, fundraising, social media -- to illustrate how some well known NPOs (nonprofit organizations) have incorporated innovation.

The authors’ bold statement in the first chapter is evidence by its title -- “Innovate or Die” -- where they cite examples of how social and cultural shifts have impacted NPOs greatly. Those who recognized the change and adapted quickly were strengthened while those who missed the boat were left on the shore wondering what happened.
