  1. Marketing & Fundraising in the Tech World with Frederick Rizzuto
    Facebook, texting, tweeting: this is what most of your clients are doing today. Are you connecting with them this way? How can you use this technology to reach out to your clients, announce upcoming events, or even find new contributors to your organization? 
  2. Why “Lean” Works for Nonprofits with Randy Franchina
    What can nonprofits learn from the years of business experience in “lean”? Is there a way to become more productive, yet happier and more successful without cutting costs to the bone? Yes, there is, and “lean” could be the solution. 
  3. Getting and Keeping the Right Personnel with Elizabeth Cipolla
