I'll be joining a panel on social media at the Common Cents Conference in Bethesda, Maryland, August 31 from 2:45 to 4:00 p.m. for a group of 200 Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit executives who run free tax preparation or asset building programs and coalitions. They're the folks who make sure that more than 40,000 area residents from low‐income families receive the Earned Income Tax Credit and get connected to tax prep and other financial services. We'll be talking about using Facebook, Twitter, blogs and other tools for outreach and community support; I like that they've listed this workshop under the track for "sustainability!" If you have a good example I can share about social media uses in finance, tax preparation or low-income financial assistance, please leave it in the comments or send it to me at info[at]dontgetcaught[dot]biz.
