Come discuss leveraging social media and online community tools to improve fundraising efforts before, during and after an event. We will discuss strategies for promoting your event, acquiring new participants, and improving the performance of your existing participants in a measurable way. We will share case studies including how The American Cancer Society's Relay For Life (the world's largest fundraising event series) uses their online tool Relay Nation to successfully connect event participants, team captains, event leaders, and volunteers in a way that increases their fundraising performance.

Attendees will walk away with: 1) Strategies for leveraging events for fundraising and practical examples of those strategies; 2) Strategic planning checklists for event planning; 3) Tactics for connecting with event participants, building loyalty, and promoting the sharing of best practices.
