In the next installment of our Access to Experts series, we'll hear three perspectives of storytelling and find out how it adds value to branding, marketing, and fundraising.

Our speakers will share their own stories and how they've been able to use them to benefit the social sector. Moderated by YNPN Director of Professional Development, Page Patten, the event will have an open Q&A after the panel conversation.  Bring your questions to wrap up our Summer of Marketing series -- and your own stories, too!

Registration is free for YNPN So. NV members and just $20 for nonmembers.
