We'd really appreciate the help in getting these panels featured at the event. And if you have a minute, please vote for the panels proposed by our friends at Beaconfire as well!

Let's Go Stalking! Fun With SocialCRMs
Scary or not, here they come! Now that organizations are entering the social media space, they need to hyper-target and engage users of certain demographics. Social Customer Relationship Management systems (SocialCRMs) make it possible to find and engage your base and get results, fast.
By interviewing experts in the SocialCRM space, we'll discuss what the SocialCRM landscape looks like now and how it is going to revolutionize the social media sphere in 2011 for nonprofits. We'll also discuss how others have used SocialCRMs successfully to turn fans into donors.
Tiny Strategies: Social Media in 60 Minutes or Less
In this quick-hit, practical-tips-focused panel, nonprofit social media experts will share their strategies for maximizing their social media impact with very little time to devote to it. We'll go round-robin style to find out how you should spend your time, whether you have 10 minutes, 30 minutes, or 60 minutes a day to devote to social media.
Fitting social media into a million other daily responsibilities
When you work for a small nonprofit, you wear a lot of hats. When you're jugging budgeting, tech support, answering the phones, maintaining the website, planning your next event and writing the newsletter...how can you even think about doing social media, too?
Hear from those who have been there and learn what works and how to balance your time to make your social media efforts shine. Learn how to focus on replicating successes so every minute you spend on social media helps your organization achieve its mission.
Talking to internal stakeholders about social media
It's important to get internal "buy-in" to your social media strategy, and language and preparation are key.
Learn how to frame your strategy around what your internal stakeholders value most: your organization's mission.
We'll discuss how to have that initial conversation when you first launch a strategy, and then the best ways to report back to them on your successes to maintain your momentum.
