On June 30th, 2011, Aspiration ran a training designed to help nonprofits coordinate their online communications and make sense of using different online tools like Facebook, Twitter, and emails.
The training was conversational and featured opportunities to get questions answered about online communications. It was ideal for anyone trying to juggle all the different online tools for their organization and those interested in new tools.
Aspiration was pleased to be able to run another eAdvocacy Training event, “Effective Online Advocacy for Grassroots Organizations”, which took place on July 7 and 8, 2011 in Los Angeles.
These trainings are generously sponsored by the California Consumer Protection Foundation (CCPF), and provided free of charge to the CCPF network.
