One week out!
Yesterday marked the beginning of the legislative session and it started in surprisingly conciliatory fashion. We are officially one week out from our 13th Annual Nonprofit Day at the State House and our exhibitors have been hard at work preparing for the big day. Many of them participated in a webinar focused on advocacy and they have all been busy reaching out to legislators and the press. And one organization, Crisis and Counseling Centers, created a video blog promoting the event. (Very creative!)
Even if you aren’t exhibiting next week, you can still be an important part of this event. We’ve created the following resources to help you increase the awareness of nonprofits and their vital contributions to Maine’s economy and way of life and strengthen your relationships with policy makers.
- Nonprofit Resource: Calling Your Legislators
- Nonprofit Resource: Writing Your Legislators
- Nonprofit Resource: Social Media – Sample Tweets and Posts
And you can start spreading the word on social media now by sharing some of the infographics we created. Find them all here. They are designed help you show that you and your organization are part of this powerful sector.
We’re also really excited about one more tool we’ve created to help spread the message that Maine’s nonprofit community is one of the most vibrant and robust in the country…but you’ll have to wait until next week to see it!
