Cause Related Marketing

I'm in Phoenix for the Cause Academy, a convocation of cause marketers, including causes, sponsors, and counsel. Here's some early notes: Causes are trying to figure out the work structure that would best deploy their teams. Sponsors want face time with the top leaders of the cause they partner with.
