Way to go ARNOVA!!

Next week I'll be attending the Association for Research on Nonprofit Organization and Voluntary Action ARNOVA annual conference in Cleveland, OH and I am super excited!! This year I'll be part of ARNOVA's social media team so stay tuned for updates via this blog, the ARNOVA website, and twitter #arnova09.

I have to say ARNOVA has made amazing progress this past year to connect with younger nonprofit scholars and to establish a social media presence on Facebook, Twitter, and Ning. This mostly due to the efforts of John Ronquillo, way to go John!

Stay tuned for live posts about the conference from John, Lindsey McDougle and myself. If you're planning to attend the conference and would like to join our social media team please let me know. Additionally, this year I (along with Jennifer Shea) have organized a dynamic networking event for conference newcomers on Friday evening of the conference. It's shaping up to be a fun and informative event!

Still finalizing how much of the conference I'll be able to attend - but hope to add to the sm presence, especially from a local Clevelander perspective. @paultofu

Heather, thank you for your blog. It has really helped orient me to the academic world of nonprofit research as I consider a PhD with a focus on nonprofit management.
I am attending my first ARNOVA conference this week. Hope to meet you there!
