Conference for nonprofit communicators

Conference for nonprofit communicators

TCU is offering an inexpensive conference for communicators who work for nonprofits. Communicators for local churches have found this conference to have helpful information for their work.

The theme for the  11th Annual TCU Nonprofit Communicators Conference on Friday, May 17, 2019, is Communication for Social Good, Impact, Authenticity & Executive Presence. 

It will be at TCU’s Kelly Alumni & Visitors Center, 2820 Stadium Drive, Fort Worth, TX  7610, with free parking is next door to the center, or in the parking garage just north of the center; both lots are off Stadium Drive.

The cost is $40. Registration is open now. As of February 7, there were 142 slots still open.

The conference description from TCU’s Extended Education department says, “For our 11th year, our conference has adopted a workshop format, after last year’s celebration of our first decade as a community. In dynamic workshops for 2019, we will bring together the voices of nonprofit communicators and executives, academics, and social-good entrepreneurs and innovators. What happens when collective impact becomes a guiding principle for our work? How can we use innovation, authenticity, and better internal communication to boost the missions and daily work of our nonprofits? How can you tap in to best practices for yourself and your organization, and lay the groundwork for change for your nonprofit?”
