A YEAR-END MESSAGE TO READERS: WHAT TOPICS INTEREST YOU IN 2013?

By James D’AmbrosioJamesProfile1Twitter

As 2012 draws to a close, I’d like to thank all readers and followers for participating in this blog and providing meaningful insights and feedback. Hopefully, columns presented were helpful — personally and professionally.

WHAT TOPICS INTEREST YOU IN 2013?

Going forward, please comment on topics you’d like to hear about in 2013 (note:  review archives on right to see topics already covered). A communications professional by training, I’m adept at writing about public relations, writing, editing, media relations, social media, public speaking, digital photography, etc., as they pertain to nonprofits. However, I’m also open to other topics a bit outside my experience and training. In either case, I’ll make every effort to address reader’ requests. This approach encompasses the spirit of this blog: expanding professional knowledge for myself and others and, in turn, helping nonprofits operate more efficiently and meet mission.

THE YEAR AHEAD: A POSITIVE VIEW

The past year, like most years, had its share of difficulties — a struggling economy, Hurricane Sandy, and a contentious presidential election, to name a few. But a new year dawns, and I look forward to good things ahead. An optimist and humanitarian, I strive to remain positive. Wishing all readers a healthy, happy and productive 2013.

PLEASE COMMENT ON TOPICS OF INTEREST FOR 2013:

A YEAR-END APPEAL TO READERS:WHAT TOPICS INTEREST YOU IN 2012?

Dear Readers:

As the new year approaches, I’m taking stock of this blog. I have written consistently for 15 months on topics I believe progressive individuals in nonprofit would be interested in. Planning for 2012, I ask for your input on issues in nonprofit communications and management you would like me to address. For new readers, my background is in public relations (M.A. communication) with significant experience in the public/nonprofit sector, and a certificate in nonprofit management (see ‘bio’ tab above for more information).

SEND ME YOUR SUGGESTIONS

Please e-mail column ideas directly to dambrosiojames@yahoo.com or comment below. While I may not be able to address all suggestions, I’ll make every effort to take on those within my scope of experience, education and knowledge that haven’t been covered. (Review ‘archives’ section on right).

In a larger sense, this column is not about me — it’s about you, the readers — and providing ideas and information nonprofits can use to operate more effectively. Given the well-documented long-term struggles facing the sector, we all need to keep thinking about how nonprofits can remain viable and fulfill their missions helping others.

Please take some time to think about topics important to you and the agency you work for. I look forward to hearing from you. Best wishes for a happy, healthy 2012!

Sincerely,

James D’Ambrosio
