Join Network For Progress, a social and media-savvy Advocate, Community and Resource for Grassroots Action on behalf of the Movement for Hope & Change, as we host a bi-partisan meetup with a DC Comm Tech For Progress speaker series program on how to host and promote successful events as well as how to be most effective when you attend.
Whether you are looking to build connections to build a Movement for a cause or build your Career or Business for your own professional development, the ability to host and/or connect at events is extremely valuable to network-building. Relationships are the single most important marketing tool to building influence and the best way to develop relationships is face-to-face through offline social engagement.
And what is "bi-partisan" about the program? Since mastering events is not an ideological skill, we will be joined by Chad Barth of Eventbrite, who worked at the Republican National Committee for eight years and served as Deputy Strategy Director for Political Technologies and can provide a unique perspective that even many smart Democratic organizers might not have about the use of relationship-building on the right.
We will also discuss a special EVENT that Network For Progress wants help with planning for 2014!
6:30 Networking / Refreshments (appetizers for early birds!)
7:00 Group Introductions
7:15 CT4P Program with Q&A: "Leveraging Events for Network-building"

When & Where
Network For Progress
*ABOUT NETWORK FOR PROGRESS
As of February 10, 2011, the fourth anniversary of the Obama For America campaign, Network For Progress will serve as an interactive and creative online/offline political, civic, professional and personally-enriching Community, Advocate & Resource for the lessons of the "Yes We Can" Movement of Hope and Change to expand on the work of Organizing For America with the Mainstream Majority of Americans (including Democrats, Progressives, Independents, Republicans and those in between comprising young people and many other under-served constituencies) that voted for President Obama in 2008.
Network For Progress will promote the use of 21st Century “bottom up” Communication, Outreach & Leadership/Development grassroots-organizing techniques for an honest dialogue to create the necessary Personal Relationships & Viral Buzz to build a Movement that is continually being revolutionized by the growth of Google, Facebook, Twitter, blogs and other networking tools but was under-utilized after Inauguration Day when the social, social media & Media vacuum of public discourse was filled by Tea Party/Fox News’ coordinated activism and only recently has been valiantly promoted by Jon Stewart’s quest for “Sanity.”
Network For Progress will provide a platform for supporters to become OUR own “Obama” who is empowered to bring PROGRESS to our professional and personal lives as well as our town, our state, our nation and our world.
“Network For Hope. Network For Change. Network For PROGRESS.”
