“To reach your peers professionally, you must be on the social channels that are used professionally by your peers, particularly LinkedIn and Twitter.” Most people think of LinkedIn just for job hunting, but there’s more you can do with that network you’ve been growing than look for a new employer, the book points out. The book is available as a free download from the Sustainable Digital Communication website at communication.sustainabledigital.com/free-social-media-ebook-nonprofits . Wrinn joins Youth Services Board BRATTLEBORO >> Eugene “Gene” Wrinn, of Guilford, in local law enforcement for more than three decades, recently joined 18 other community members in serving on Youth Services’ board of directors. Through more than a dozen programs ranging from restorative justice, to outreach, transitional living and case management, the nonprofit agency helps Windham County young people and families thrive. Joining the force in 1987, Wrinn spent years in Brattleboro Police Department’s patrol division before he moved to the Detective Division which he supervised. In 2007 he was appointed Chief of Police where he remained until retiring in 2014, receiving recognition for his work rebuilding positive relations with the community by requiring patrol officers to perform foot patrols as a regular part of their workday. After leaving the police department, Wrinn worked out the Windham Country State’s Attorney’s Office developing the county’s pre-trial monitoring program which was eventually moved into Youth Services, and he followed. The program screens for the presence of substance abuse or mental health issues to inform the criminal justice system about whether alternative paths at rehabilitation might be more effective than the traditional criminal justice system. “It was rewarding to help people deal with the real underlying issues in their lives that were causing criminal behavior rather than focusing solely on punitive measures,” Wrinn said. In August 2015 Wrinn accepted a full time position as a social worker at the Vermont Department for Children and Families where he presently conducts investigations of reports of abuse and neglect incidents involving children.
