The directed network campaigning model presented in our Networked Change report, continues to catch on around the world. Learn more at our free webinar this week, or at deeper dive trainings coming soon in Washington, D.C. and Australia.

We are happy to announce that we are now working with Salsa, a leading provider of a member engagement and donor management software platform that is used by over 10,000 organizations to fuel great causes across the globe. Groups that integrate solutions like Salsa’s will be equipped to do the member listening and data-driven testing that are key parts of the directed network campaigning model.

For a start, here are two events we are hosting with Salsa:
