Texting for Non-profits Webinar recording
Thank you to all who attended our recent webinar “Texting for Non-Profits: Compliance in a Complex World” on May 12. Special thanks to our fabulous guest, attorney Martha Buyer, for all her knowledge and guidance on the unique challenges that regulations present to non-profit helplines. Also thanks to Neil McKechnie for joining Martha as our panelist and for helping to explain how iCarol can be used to accept these texts from help seekers in your community, with some examples of tools that help with compliance.
Did you miss our webinar? Do you want to hear the answers to these questions and more?
“What’s P2P and A2P? What are the differences between them?”
“What are ‘short codes?'”
“If someone texts in to your service, isn’t that implied consent?”
“Are there any rules that require you to use ‘short codes’ vs. ‘long codes’?”
“How big are the penalties for not complying with regulations?”
Dana joined the iCarol team in 2013 after 12 years of direct service and administrative duties at a suicide prevention, crisis intervention, and empathetic listening helpline that also served as a 2-1-1 information and referral service. As the Communications and Social Media Manager at iCarol, you’ll find her presenting Webinars, Tweeting, Blogging, Facebooking, and producing other materials that aid helplines in their work.
In her spare time, Dana enjoys birdwatching, gardening, animal caregiving, and spending time with her family.
