Council offers members-only Social Media Best Practices Roundtable

Like it or not, a social media presence is a reality of operating a nonprofit in our 21st Century world, but it’s a tricky space for nonprofits to operate in. It’s also changing almost every day: Facebook, Twitter and Instagram are the standard, but nonprofits are starting to explore Snapchat, Periscope and more.

The Providers’ Council is hosting a members-only Social Media Best Practices Roundtable on Wednesday, Nov. 16 from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. in Needham to explore how human service organizations can effectively use social media and steer clear of controversy.

A distinguished, veteran panel and Council staff will talk about how to decide what posts are appropriate, exciting and important to the public; and how to best inform the public about successes, manage crises, build support and share issues that affect us and the populations we serve.

This event is free and exclusively for Providers’ Council members. It will include networking & introductions, peer presentations and discussion, and questions and next steps. You can register online here.

The Social Media Roundtable is one of several trainings the Council is offering in November and December. You can see the full lineup at Some have been approved by NASW for CEUs. If you have questions about the roundtable or the Council's other educational offerings, please e-mail Ella Froggatt.
