MHAworks sponsors nonprofit social media training session by Facebook

On Tuesday, November 27, MHAworks sponsored a nonprofit training session presented by Facebook. In an effort to enhance their interaction with volunteers, advocates and donors, dozens of nonprofit representatives attended the seminar. Brook Oberwetter and Melissa Oppenheim of Facebook led the interactive training session with best practices and real-world applications of social media tactics to better represent their organizations and connect with the community of Durham.

Facebook opened their Forest City Data Center in April 2012, and has since been involved with Triangle Community Foundation and NC Community Foundation to help make nonprofits throughout North Carolina aware of opportunities to grow and learn.

ECU gets a spacious, new tutoring center for its students

In early September, East Carolina University, a repeat client of MHAworks, recently celebrated the opening of the Pirate Tutoring Center in the Old Cafeteria Complex with a presentation and ribbon cutting ceremony. Relocated from the Joyner Library, MHAworks renovated the interior of the Old Cafeteria Complex to expand and update the tutoring center.

With 5,000 square feet of renovation, plus alterations to a mechanical mezzanine, the new tutoring center provides students with spacious learning centers, individual workstations and a large group conference area. The design of the project was completed by May 2012, and the space was renovated while students were on summer break.

Albi McLawhorn, one of the partners of MHAworks and the lead at our Greenville office, reflected, “Working on this type of project for East Carolina University is exciting because it is at the forefront of how technology is changing and being changed by the learning environment.”
