*** Attend SMASH (Social Media Advanced Skills Huddle), LA Apr 7

S.M.A.S.H. (Social Media Advanced Skills Huddle) is presented by Communitelligence and Social Radius at USC, Los Angeles. April 7, 2011. We know how fast social media is changing, and how valuable your time and money are these days. That's why we created SMASH, a series of unique how-to huddles on the campuses of the world's best universities, taught by some of America's top social media practitioners and experts. http://www.communitelligence.com/npps/story.cfm?nppage=156

SMASH pushes the traditional conference into something much more interactive and practical. SMASH is designed to help you make better decisions about deploying social media for marketing, public relations and corporate communications. Presenters and attendees will huddle to air issues, seek advice, and tap into each other's wisdom while arriving at practical solutions. We believe having faculty and students in attendance adds another dimension to the learning environment. Our aim is to have everyone leave armed with the knowledge, inspiration — and a social network — that will become a supporting foundation for future challenges. As the necessity for business solutions increases, so does the need to huddle.

10 Reasons to attend

1. No final exam.

2. No death by PowerPoint.

3. A no-nonsense, jam-packed agenda at a fantastic conference price.

4. There will be some really smart people attending and osmosis works!

5. You will be engaged because All of us are smarter than one of us.

6. You will see, hear and learn many new things that will benefit you and your organization.

7. Inspiration is free. There will be a lot of that passed around.

8. There are advanced skills required in social media today. Here's where you will learn them.

9. When you have afterthoughts, you can still huddle in the Communitelligence private conference network.

10. USC is a really cool campus and you'll have a chance to reconnect with the student in you.

John Gerstner

President, Communitelligence Inc.

Best regards,

Cheryl L. Mayes

Operations Manager

National Breast Cancer Coalition

57.) Campaign Manager for Breast Cancer Deadline 2020, The National Breast Cancer Coalition, Washington, DC

The National Breast Cancer Coalition (NBCC), a grassroots advocacy organization, recently launched Breast Cancer Deadline 2020, the most important campaign in the history of the breast cancer movement. Since 1990, NBCC has been at the vanguard of the breast cancer movement – elevating breast cancer to an issue of national significance, leveraging billions of federal dollars for research and care, and empowering tens of thousands of breast cancer survivors to become effective advocates for themselves, and for all those at risk of breast cancer. But the fact remains that more than 250,000 women and almost 2,000 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year, and it will take the lives of more than 40,000 in the United States and 500,000 worldwide. Despite years of campaigns to raise awareness, ever expanding screening programs, increased investments in research, breast cancer incidence and mortality have not changed significantly. We must change that. We must stop doing business as usual. We must eradicate this disease. Breast Cancer Deadline 2020 will make it possible.

Join NBCC’s staff as the Campaign Manager for Breast Cancer Deadline 2020 and play a key role in this exciting and important campaign. NBCC is looking for a smart, strategic, collaborative and experienced Campaign Manager to provide leadership, management and guidance for all non-programmatic aspects of the campaign, including communications, outreach, marketing and fundraising. Your primary responsibility will be to develop and implement a two-year strategy for campaign outreach with measurable and achievable goals. You will work in close cooperation and partnership with the heads of the Communications, Field & Development departments to promote the campaign to the general public, engage more individuals and grow the involvement and financial support among our community of supporters. This is a great opportunity for a proactive, ambitious individual with an interest in the work of the Coalition to make a significant contribution to our efforts while gaining considerable skills, experience and knowledge.

Candidates must have a bachelor's degree and 5-10 years of experience in campaign development and implementation, including communications & grassroots outreach, coalition building, field organizing, online engagement and event planning/supervision. In addition, experience with fundraising, budgets and a non-profit organization is required. A history of working collaboratively as a project leader is essential. Must demonstrate creativity, initiative, and follow-through, as well as being detail-oriented and level-headed. Salary commensurate with experience; excellent benefits.

Fax cover letter with resume and salary requirements to NBCC at (202) 973-4650, Attn: Human Resources; e-mail jobs@stopbreastcancer.org with “Campaign Manager” in the subject line; or mail to 1101 17th St., NW, Suite 1300, Washington, DC 20036. Sorry, no calls please. NBCC is an equal opportunity, affirmative action employer that especially welcomes applications from breast cancer survivors, women and people of color.
