A young volunteer (and his helpers) at the Share Our Strength Conference of Leaders Day of Service
We’re in DC at great event, the Share Our Strength annual Conference of Leaders. Each year, Share Our Strength brings together their flock–people who work on Taste of the Nation events, Operation Frontline, Great Amerian Dineout, Great American Bake Sale, staff, corporate sponsors, and many others.
It’s a marvelous example of community building, at the end of which, relationships have been formed and rekindled, and people go away energized about the organization’s mission of ending childhood hunger in our lifetime.
Each year at the conference, a phenomenal conversation occurs, among a group of incredibly passionate, bright and motivated people. This year, we’re determined to extend that conversation beyond the conference; to bring it online, and to use the event as catalyst for a social media effort that keeps the community connected year-round.
To that end, we have quite a bit of social media activity going on. Beth Kanter is coming in to help us live blog the conference’s Service Day, and to lead a workshop tomorrow. The Share Our Strength Conference of Leaders blog is up and running to document the goings on. Several people will be tweeting events. Check it out for the next couple of days to see what’s happening. We encourage you to join the conversation, and stay connected as we move forward.
