Advancing the Service Movement through Innovation

April 20, 2010
The Newseum, Washington, D.C.

Join the most creative thinkers to learn how individuals are using social media tools and other innovative strategies to change the landscape of service. Social innovators will share interesting experiences such as locating disaster victims with cell phones, quickly gathering thousands of volunteers for one-day projects and organizing person-to-person service efforts through Web-based technologies and other tools.

Whether you are a community organizer, government or nonprofit leader, corporate community affairs director, student, social media expert, or volunteer leader, there will be something for you at the LEAD – A Get HandsOn! Summit.  Come and embrace new ways of engaging people to create citizen-centered change.

Imagine. Create. Inspire.
Speakers include Rich Harwood, founder of the Harwood Institute; Allison Fine, author and social change connoisseur,and Heather Mansfield, social media expert. James “JB” Brown, AARP Brand Ambassador for Community and Host of CBS’ NFL Today and Showtime’s Inside the NFL will moderate an engaging discussion!
