Community Alignment Using Collaboration Tools

Do you struggle to maintain alignment of your group’s core message when speaking publicly about your work? Are your efforts to educate the public and put out a compelling call to action diluted by a lack of clarity? You can strengthen your message and provide stronger support for groups and committees with the power of online collaboration.  Online Collaboration Tools can help you more effectively manage marketing, fundraising and workgroups at your nonprofit.

Join me at the Volunteer Center of Sonoma County for a fun learning opportunity around online collaboration. “Community Alignment Using Collaboration Tools” will be held Thursday, March 16, 2017 from 8:30 – 11:00 am.

Web-based collaboration tools not only host shared files, but can increase collaborative engagement and enhance your member’s ability to speak as subject matter experts about your cause.

In this class we’ll explore the technical aspects, feature sets and engagement strategies of collaboration tools using a “goals to roles” design approach. The session is targeted to workgroups, advocacy committees or nonprofit program staff who are charged with central communication and administration of workgroups.

Attendees will work in a peer setting to:

  • Promote engagement for your group efforts by addressing member’s interests and abilities
  • Expedite site navigation and usability so your members can get right to what they need
  • Architect site setup for clean content management
  • Reduce administrative burden by centralizing scheduling, emailing, chatting, document storage and list management

The session will demonstrate the pros and cons of different tools by demonstrating Zoho Connect, BaseCamp and Trello. Attendees will see how various types of collaboration tools can work to a group’s advantage when feature sets support workflows.

The session is scheduled for Thursday March 16, 2017 from 8:30 to 11:00 am at the Volunteer Center of Sonoma County, 153 Stony Circle, Ste. 100, Santa Rosa, CA 95401.
