I’m happy for the Nonprofit Technology Conference
Next week more than hundreds upon hundreds of nonprofiteers will descend upon the capital of Texas (Keeping Austin Cool, baby!) for NTEN’s 2015 Nonprofit Technology Conference (aka #15NTC). This will be my ninth year attending — and my first as a member of NTEN’s board. I’m as excited as a red panda in snow. This conference continues to be the place for nonprofiteers to learn new ideas, meet amazing people, discover new products, make new friends/contacts, and combine their powers to use technology for good.
Whether you’ve been to the NTC before, are attending for the first time, will be following the tweets from afar, or are just curious, here are five ways you can participate:
1. Catch the knowledge that I will be dropping in all of these sessions:
Wednesday, March 4, 3:00-3:30pm | ML Show Office 1
- Day 2: Keeping Your Website Current Beyond Launch with Kira Marchense, Environmental Defense Fund (#15NTCbeyondlaunch)
Thursday, March 5, 1:30pm-3:00pm | Ballroom B
The Rebrand Effect: Accelerating Fundraising Through Communications with Will Nolan, Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy (#15NTCrebrand)
Friday, March 6, 10:30am-12:00pm | MR 5BC
2. Say hello, pose for a ducksnap, and raise a glass at the Tech Club Happy Hour on Wednesday, March 4, from 5:00pm-6:30pm, at the Cedar Door–just steps away from the Convention Center. Mention me on Twitter if you can’t find me there!
4. Sign up for the Online NTC, with access to plenary sessions available hours later and 28 breakout sessions available the week after the conference.
5. Attend a post-event recap event in your community. If you are in the NYC-area, find out what we learned and hear from some speakers at our 501TechNYC recap event on April 22.
