Make Facebook Work for Your Chapter
Two-thirds of U.S. adults are using Facebook, and the social media platform now favors local events over national advertising. That means Facebook is a great place to reach out to new audiences for chapter events. We’ll show you how easy it is to post events on your chapter Facebook page, and we’ll lift back the curtain on Facebook advertising to help you target the right audience for your event.
Using the Clean Water Hub To Educate the Public About Water Quality
The League’s new Clean Water Hub is a powerful tool to share Save Our Streams (SOS) water quality information. This workshop is designed for League members who want to put the SOS data they collect to good use in their communities. League staff will show you how to make the most of data in the Hub, including using it for presentations to policymakers, local residents, and potential partners in your region. You will receive detailed instructions about navigating the Hub, templates that make it easy to share data with the public, and tips for presenting a compelling message about the value of water quality information collected by volunteers.
Making a Good First Impression Matters! Engaging a New Generation in Conservation
League members understand how important it is to connect young adults and families with the outdoors and engage them in conservation. However, we often struggle to communicate with younger audiences – quite literally, we do not speak the same language or approach conservation issues from the same point of view. This workshop will help you understand why nature and the outdoors matter to young adults and families and will provide tips on engaging these audiences more effectively based on their interests and motivations.
Using Bylaws To Improve Effectiveness and Achieve Results
This workshop is for all chapter and division leaders. Board members and officers have a duty to ensure compliance with state and federal laws as well as chapter or division bylaws. All too often, Board members forget the bylaws that govern the organization’s activities, setting them up for potential legal challenges as well as challenges within their own membership. Bylaws can be a valuable tool to ensure success for your chapter or division. This workshop will address what should be included in chapter and division bylaws, how to go about revising bylaws, and how to use bylaws to get ahead of problems before they become a crisis or distraction for your chapter or division.
