Organizing with Local Chapters

Organizing with Local Chapters

January 1st, 2012 // 10:00 am @

When the American Humanist Association’s Executive Director needed outside help to encourage their 130+ local chapters engage in more LGBT rights activism locally and nationally, he came to me.

As a starting point for expanded LGBT initiatives, I created and implemented a social media strategy to expand the AHA’s LGBT Facebook presence, growing the LGBT Humanist Council Facebook page to 1600 followers.

On the local level, I worked individually with over 30 chapter leaders and activists to develop and implement campaigns and strategic plans to increase the scope of local LGBT activities, support and sponsorship in their communities. And I managed production of a manual to guide chapter leaders in participation in local LGBT Pride events.

"Michael has provided excellent support for our nascent LGBT Humanist outreach project. Over the past year, Michael managed and significantly grew our social media presence and he also did solid outreach work with our local groups to encourage them to be part of our new project. I recommend Michael highly for any online or offline program development work."
