Yesterday I had the honor of being part of the social media for social good fair at NCVS.  We gathered around small tables to discuss various aspects of social media.  My topic was “8 Signs your organization is doomed to fail on Facebook”.  You can access my presentation here: Facebook_201 or online at: http://bit.ly/NCVSFB201.

It’s that time of year again… national conference time!  This will be my third National Conference on Volunteering and Service (NCVS) and I am excited for what is in store.  They have continued to up the stakes and therefore my anticipation meter is through the roof.  Hopefully I am not disappointed.

Since I arrived in New York City early to visit family, I have already begun pre-conference activities.  Yesterday I met up with my peers from NAVPLG (National Association of Volunteer Programs in Local Government). I was reminded of 2 things:  1. I strongly dislike New York… especially Times Square, 2.  It it’s invaluable to have a great group of peers like my buddies from NAVPLG who’ve got your back.  I forgot my wallet at the hotel but was covered and still able to enjoy a dinnner with great company!

This morning I hit the streets early to attend pre-conference sessions for HandsOn Network affiliates and hopefully meet some new folks before the Opening plenary.

Best find of the day: secluded speakers room with computer access!  (I love my speaker badge!)

Finally, speaking of being a speaker….   I am presenting on the Social Media for Social Good Fair session tomorrow from 8:30 am – 10 am at the Mecury Rotunda at the Hilton (3rd floor on your left).  This is a pretty casual session, so feel free to drop by and say hi!  You can preview my presentation here: http://bit.ly/NCVSFB201

I will continue to journal about my conference experience here and will also post pictures when I am able to load them off my camera at the hotel.  You can follow me on http://www.twitter.com/sharontb during the conference.
