Charter Center Wants to Optimize Multi-Audience Communication from Start to Finish

by Alex Cone

The New York City Charter School Center is an independent nonprofit committed to expanding access to high-quality public schools for all students regardless of where they live and the challenges they face. We believe that charter schools are partners in a larger effort to build and maintain a great system of public schools.

So what do we do? We help new charter schools get started, support existing schools, and engage the charter school community around key issues. It’s easy to see that we serve a lot of separate and at times overlapping constituencies. On any given day we may be promoting technical events for existing charter schools, engaging with start-up schools, and organizing parents to speak out about funding inequities.

This is where Salsa comes in.

We need a tool that allows us to seamlessly collect email addresses, create lists, send emails, organize events, and host petitions. Salsa must have known we were coming. The suite of tools is just what we need.

Alan presented his impressive social media strategy for creating offline results, and Anne presented ways to use Salsa to enhance the effectiveness of online campaigns.

Below is a brief overview of my presentation.
