Description

Nonprofit Tech Club Chicago is pleased to be joined this month by Forefront's Director of Communications Kathleen Murphy and Caleb Gardner, co-founder of 18 Coffees and former lead digital strategist for OFA!


September's conversation centers around creating fresh and authentic communications for #GivingTuesday 2017. As the global day of giving reaches its sixth year, how can you find new ways to engage your online audiences? How can you identify and best share your organization's mission? What content can you generate to stand out from the rest?


Get a jump start on this year's #GivingTuesday and #ILGive with this informative and interactive conversation.


A list will be given to security in the lobby, so be sure to RSVP here and bring your ID.
