Use Twitter in May & Webinar For Beginners

A group of Community Action Agencies (including the National Training and Technical Assistance Center of CAP, Kansas Association of Community Action Programs, Virtual CAP, ABCD of Boston, Ohio Association of Community Action Agencies, and Community Action Kentucky) are spearheading a Social Media celebration of Community Action Month in May through the “Hashtag of Promise: #CommunityAction” Twitter Campaign. We are hoping that Community Action Agencies will take the lead in encouraging your board members, staff, partners and customers to participate in this campaign in support of Community Action.

On April 13, 2012 from 3 to 4 pm Eastern Standard Time, we are pleased to offer "Twitter 99: When you are not quite ready for Twitter 101." This free webinar will provide participants with an introduction to the social media tool Twitter and how it has been used successfully by the Community Action Network to share information on events, highlight programs, raise awareness, and garner support. You will learn how to "tweet", when to "tweet", the role of #, and how it can be an important addition to your social media toolbox. For those many Community Action Agencies already using Twitter, this session may help you learn ways of increasing the impact of your tweets. We will also highlight our efforts to make May 8th Community Action Day on Twitter and how you can easily participate.

Please let any of the “spearheading” agencies know of any questions or concerns you may have, or if you would like information on the anticipated benefits to participating in this campaign.

Thank you for your consideration.
