Sharing a relevant, meaningful story is key to the success of any organization. It can be a beacon for the success of your mission; the more defined your story is, the brighter your beacon becomes.

This hands-on workshop with Tamela Spicer will help you identify your organization’s best story and explore ways to share it with your donors and stakeholders to drive your mission forward.

This workshop will cover:

  • Identifying your organization’s primary story
  • Crafting your story to increase reach and engagement
  • Outlining story-sharing platforms

Cost: $60
FREE for GVSU students, staff & faculty with valid ID!

Deadline to register is Thursday, April 30.
