NetSquared Local Events: Week of June 24
NetSquared events come in all shapes and sizes, and we love them all! The exact format isn’t important, as long as we are consistently gathering the nonprofit & tech communities together so that they can learn from each other. However, our organizers are currently very keen on social media surgeries.
A social media surgery is an informal gathering of people who want to learn how to use the web to communicate, campaign or collaborate. It’s like Lucy’s psychiatrist booth, but without the emotional abuse! Interested in learning more? Join Manchester’s Steven Flower or Burlington’s Amanda Levinson this week to find a cure for what ails you.
