Spring conference season is in full swing, and I'll be at several conferences in March:

Harvard Social Enterprise Conference -- Presented by the students of the Harvard Business School and Harvard Kennedy School, I'll be speaking on Sunday, March 6th in the "Technology & Design" track called "The Social Network". I'll be presenting with DonorsChoose, Blue State Digital, and GlobalGiving. We'll be focusing on what's next in social networking and how it will affect social entrepreneurs, activists, politicians and supporters in the United States and around the world. Tickets are still available for Sunday and you can register here.

SxSW -- I'm looking forward to being in Austin at the SxSW Interactive conference for a number of meetings and to hear how people are using the social web in innovative ways. I will be at the Good Capitalist event on Saturday evening and the Network For Good event on Sunday evening, and I hope to see many of you there.

NTEN Nonprofit Technology Conference -- Care2 is a proud sponsor of the Nonprofit Technology Conference in Washington, DC.  Due to a family commitment, I will not be able to attend Charityoke: an NPTech Karaoke party, which we are co-sponsoring with RAD Campaign and Salsa, but many members of our DC team will be there.

On Friday, I will be presenting the Care2 Impact Prize at the plenary session. A great group of finalists has been selected by our judging panel, and we hope you'll vote for who you think should win.

Jocelyn Harmon, Director of Business Development at Care2, will be speaking on Friday afternoon with Ivan Boothe, Allyson Kapin and Shireen Mitchell about Building Community and Movements

!deation Conference -- Charles Lee has put together an amazing conference in Long Beach, California on March 28-29. The conference will bring together a mix of non-profit and for-profit "thinkers and practitoners" to discuss how each can make an impact on social change. I'll be sharing what motivated me to start Care2 and why each day we demonstrate that business can be a powerful force for good.

If you're going to be at any of these events and would like to get together, please let me know.

Thanks for all you do. I found this site about 6 years ago, through a petition sent to my regular e-mail. I signed the petition, started looking around Care2 and I was instantly hooked. This place has taught me so much, things I would never have learned otherwise. Thanks for being "reachable" and keeping all of us in the loop.

Oh, I wish I knew you were in MA, I just went to the Care2 main site tonite; 3/10/11; I would have loved to see you at Harvard. Randy, you come from Weston? The best town in MA, I am serious, I love that area, it is still pastoral and not maddening like the cities.
I go right to my groups and neglected the main page and I lost out. Sorry, this time; but I intend to go to an event when you are back in your hometown in the future. I love Care2 and it is the only place I blog or have ever blogged. Nice pics of you!!! Fascinating Profile too!!!
