Thursday, June 15, 2017 Nonprofit Chamber Meeting – For Members and Their Staffs Only
The Power of Video For Nonprofits: Why You Can’t Afford NOT to Use Them!
Corey Saban, Emmy nominated and Associated Press award winning TV journalist (former news anchor at WPBF), will discuss how nonprofits of all sizes are using short form web video to connect with funding prospects across all generations. In this highly interactive program, he will offer examples of how to successfully use videos on your website, Facebook, YouTube and in emails.
The stats are quite shocking;
- 59% of executives would rather watch video than read text and four times as many consumers would rather watch a video about a product or event than read about it. (Small Biz Trends)
- Adding video to your email generates a 200-300% increase in click-through rates and just using the word video in the subject line boosts your open rate by 19%. (Small Biz Trends)
- YouTube is the second largest search engine
- Cisco says by 2019, 80% of all web traffic will be video

Chamber Expands Membership Opportunities
Arts and cultural nonprofits and those focusing on animal causes can now join the Nonprofit Chamber. Until now, only health and human services nonprofits qualified for membership, but the board felt that other nonprofits could benefit from the discussions, conferences and information presented at Chamber meetings. “We all encounter the same types of issues regarding human resource management, finances, fund-raising, advocacy, and other internal matters,” explained Marlene Passell, Chamber manager. Because the organization was focused on its mission and growing membership, it initially kept membership within the health and human services arena. “But we receive requests regularly from other organizations and we are now prepared for that growth,” Ms. Passell added.
Additionally, start-up nonprofits with budgets of $100,000 or less can request scholarships to cover the first year’s $200 membership cost. Other categories of membership have also been added to allow funding organizations and those seeking to sponsor events or meetings to become involved with the Chamber.
