Summary transcript for 30 Aug 2012 #AWCchat: Nonprofit communications

Thanks to everyone who participated in our 31st #AWCChat on Twitter, about how to juggle it all when you’re a nonprofit communications professional.

Huge thanks to our guest host @JanGunter; she’s the Communications Manager and “Jill of All Trades” for Ronald McDonald House Charities of Austin and Central Texas.

Four items were up for discussion:

1)   How does one prioritize work across so many areas: website, fundraising, media relations, social media, email & marketing?

2)   What resources (other than OJT – on the job training) are available? How do you learn the job duties that you don’t know?

3)   As a nonprofit associated with a for-profit brand, how do you create awareness of your need for support?

4)   When do you DIY (do it yourself) & when do you hire an outside professional? e.g., for video, photography, web design or PR campaigns.

We had lots of good resource links, too!

**  On Chirpstory – the summary transcript for 30 August chat on thriving as a nonprofit communicator.

The next chat is on Thursday, 6 September at 1130 am CST, about building a “toolbox” of software and apps to manage your online/social media work.

**  Chat schedule and topics for September 2012

Thanks for your support of the AWC (Association for Women in Communications) community.
