My interest in social media, particularly its application to nonprofit sector professional development, is becoming as much of a personal and professional obsession as boards.
Recently, I discovered a site where the two intersected, resulting in a novel approach to board orientation. Click here to access the highly interactive site offered by CompassPoint Nonprofit Services. Note that it is interactive -- you'll be able to navigate to the sessions that most interest you and even ask questions of the presenter. Be sure to also check out the "Conference Bag," with links to resources that you will find useful.
This represents a significant jump forward in technology use, one that should prove valuable in efforts to reach across the wide open spaces of Wyoming (my larger passion: finding ways to connect the state's nonprofit practitioners and volunteers, and to deliver formal and informal professional development opportunities that build capacity to serve our communities).
