And we want more – so there will be more. Kelli and I have discussed a possible workshop in February featuring more advanced features of Social Media and digging into blogging. Blogs are in and we may as well figure out what they are good for and how to do them properly. So, stay tuned! Here’s a look at Friday! As you can see below – there is another workshop coming up. This one is very different. It’s all about fund raising and development and stewardship and board engagement. This will be the last JoCoNet workshop this year. Don’t miss it. Enjoy!
