This morning I’m heading to Sacramento for the Housing California conference for 2 workshops about the internet and storytelling.

The first one is a redux of a tag team session (with Mark Horvath of InvisiblePeople.tv) on at The National Alliance to End Family Homelessness Conference. (Read Part 1 or Part 2) For this round, the lovely and talented Natalie Profant Komuro will be moderating the session. Here’s the session descriptions from the registration brochure.

The second session is an introduction on story based nonprofit fundraising or storytelling with a result. This is one of my most favorite things to talk about, it dominates my brain. How can an organization catalyze their audiences, increase volunteers and raise donations? Here’s a few ways that we’ll be talking about:

  • Involving your constituents in the story
  • Creating incredible content
  • Working with hungry and talented filmmakers
  • Tell the story of your staff as a catalyst to show the humanity of your organization
  • Highlighting the bright spots
  • Managing “the orchestra”

We’ll cover a lot of info and I’m going to attempt to record it.  We’ll see how that goes.

If you’ll be at the conference, don’t be a stranger.
