Upcoming Community College Webinars

March 19, 2013

Bringing Order and Sanity to Your Community College Website

With limited resources, community colleges rely on (or should be using) content providers throughout the school to help maintain web content. Learn the "Five R's" of website governance, and how to put them into play.

Making the Most Out of Your First Donor Visit

You can accomplish more in that first donor visit than you think. Hear a different approach to donor cultivation from a community college fundraiser who believes you don't have to wait 18-24 months to ask for a gift...and has the successes to prove it.
Speaker: Timothy Nelson, Associate Vice President for Development, Midlands Techincal College (S.C.)

LinkedIn can be a very effective resource for alumni relations programs. With roughly two professionals joining LinkedIn every second (and students and recent graduates being the fastest-growing demographic), this free resource is great for small staffs with limited resources.

This webinar will help you leverage your alumni relations program by employing several new LinkedIn tools that make finding and reaching your former students easy. Hear how one school, with a very small advancement staff, used it to reduce its bad mail count, discover a new crop of successful award nominees, create and sustain a mentor program and triple its email database.
