I would like to pass along some information that I received from a volunteer organizer for Burlington NetSquared. This org is hosting an event highlighting different ways in which tech is being used for social good in Vermont, with the goal of building networks between nonprofits and the tech community, and increasing the capacity of nonprofits to use social media and tech in their work.
Burlington NetSquared has been partnering with the Vermont Digital Economy Project to do a series of “Social Media Surgeries” for nonprofits around the state. These are casual, drop-in workshops pairing nonprofits with “surgeons” (people who are knowledgeable about social media) for a couple of hours so they can ask questions about their Facebook page, Twitter, etc.
There will be a Social Media Surgery next Wednesday in Rutland. The Burlington NetSquared group is looking for a few “surgeons” for this event. If you are interested, please consider attending. If you know someone who might be interested, please pass along this information.
