Posted by Mark Chipman, District 7070 Governor 2020-21

As we were developing the District 7070 Strategic Plan, we asked Rotarians and Rotaractors what would help them and their clubs be even more effective. The response was Training. We listened. This coming Rotary year, we are having 'Tuesday Talks', led by 2020-21 District Training Chair, Past District Governor Beth Selby. These talks will be very much like the "Rotary Connects" sessions we had this year on a monthly basis. They will take place on the second Tuesday of the month from 7- 8 pm.All you have to do is register, on the District 7070 website.  

Here is a preview of Tuesday August 11, 2020 with Nicole Beatty - Fundraisers Are Influencers With A Cause:

August 11, 2020  - 7 - 8 pm  

Influencer marketing has exploded in recent years.  This form of engagement is more than prestige, advertising and brand endorsement.  It’s about storytelling, community building and connecting with people in a meaningful way.  In the non-profit and charitable sector community influencers are all around us: frontline workers, donors, board members, volunteers and yes, fundraisers. If you’re like me you love what you do and you want to influence positive change in the world around you.  You’re an ambassador for a cause you believe in.  You’re a storyteller that inspires giving.  You’re a relationship manager that connects people with philanthropy. You’re an influencer with a cause.  And in the wake of COVID-19, your efforts and passion have never been more important.

We will review influencer trends and how they’re elevating community engagement for non-profits and charities during the COVID-19 pandemic; learn how to integrate engagement marketing into our fundraising practice; and discuss how to influence positive change in the world around you during this unprecedented time.
