Conducting Successful Special Events

Photo by Jonathan Deamer


Special events are critical for nonprofits. They give organizations an audience and a platform to tell stories. They build communities.     

Dinners, golf tournaments, trivia nights, walks… there are many ways to draw a crowd and to engage or re-engage people with your mission. Join the Community Service Public Relations Council for its next luncheon as we look at how to succeed at special events.     

Our panelists will be Stephen Phelps of Doorways, Inc., and Laura Cohen of Trailnet. Both organizations conduct popular and successful annual events. I participated in a conference call with both panelists and really enjoyed the conversation. This luncheon promises to be another session where both new communicators and experienced nonprofit professionals can learn something new.
