The online community is invited to join this year’s “a Better West Virginia Network” effort, intended to help connect organizations, businesses, and individuals according to their need(s).
For the most part, everyone has some need or challenge that can be solved through networking, and the Internet is an excellent medium for publicizing such needs and generating worthwhile connections.
Maybe your nonprofit needs more volunteers. Maybe your business needs new clients and/or employees. Perhaps you need a new job. Maybe you’re looking for someone with specialized knowledge to complete a project. Perhaps your community has a specific need.
In some cases, making local connection(s) could suffice, while other instances may require help from outside of the state. Think locally, nationally, or globally, whichever applies best to your circumstances.
Here’s how to participate within the “a Better West Virginia Network.”
a Better West Virginia Network
First, identify and describe the need(s) of your organization, business, community, or individual circumstance.
Second, publish this information on your blog or website, and forward the link to me via email: jason(at)keelingstrategic(dot)com. If necessary, my mobile is 304.989.3262.
Third, return to this blog on West Virginia Day, where a list of the various submissions will be posted.
Lastly, visitors will be encouraged to peruse the compiled list and help make any connections.
If you don’t have a blog or website, feel free to submit a comment here regarding such a need(s). If you use Twitter.com, publish your need there and include the #aBetterWVNetwork hash tag. Facebookers, connect with our fan page and submit your need there.
This process is intended to make us think about the various needs in West Virginia, and ideally, it will help make useful connections and establish positive outcomes.
Public involvement, to whatever degree, will determine the effectiveness of this effort. Thanks in advance for your interest.
