It is important to collect contact information from attendees at your PRIDE events. This gives you the ability to send parents and community members a thank you, invite them to the next PRIDE event, keep them informed on all the good things going on in your schools and how our students and members are at the center of it all, etc.
We met a local leader recently who plans to have her iPad out at her PRIDE events into to facilitate the collection of contact info. She is planning to use either Remind101 or Celly, which allows users to opt-in to a text messaging service while protecting their privacy.
