If one of your New Year's resolutions was to make an effort to engage in professional development — whether that means taking a class, learning more about social media, or networking — the Foundation Center is making it easy to get started! All of our field offices are hosting some notable events throughout the rest of the month and into February that are definitely worth checking out.
- Our Atlanta office is hosting "Expert in Residence" Susan Burnash of Purple Duck Marketing. She's already written a couple of great blog posts on marketing for nonprofits, and if you're in the Atlanta area she is still hosting live workshops and coaching sessions at the Center.
- All Foundation Center field offices will be hosting a GrantSpace launch event on January 26. Each location has a different and exciting program, featuring local experts on a variety of topics of interest to grantseekers. As if that wasn't enough, there will be door prizes for those who attend!
- Looking ahead, the Foundation Center-New York will be hosting a networking night about putting the "Fun" in "Fundraising." Come ready to meet and share stories with your colleagues. Visit the event page on Grantspace for more information and to register.
- If this year you hope to engage more with social media, check out some of these posts on the Foundation Center-Atlanta blog about getting started with Twitter.
These are just a few things to get you going—as always, keep up to date on the Foundation Center calendar for upcoming classes and events.
