I’m going to tell you about a conference I attended in June — why it was so awesome and how you can make the most out of upcoming conferences.
The NCTech4Good Conference was one of the best conferences, if not the best, I’ve ever attended. First, let’s get some logistics out of the way.
The NCTech4Good Conference is organized annually by NCTech4Good.
NC stands for North Carolina, where the group is based.
NCTech4Good is part of NetSquared and NTEN, organizations that bring together nonprofit technologists locally to share best practices and support each other's work. NCTech4Good also holds monthly meetups in North Carolina.
Have you ever thought about hosting nonprofit technology events in your community? You should, because it’s awesome fun. Not only will you be contributing your skills to local nonprofits, but you’ll also be building your reputation and connecting with your tribe. NetSquared is here to help you along the way with everything from slide templates to planning checklists.
Various organizations and organizations offer again an exceptional array of events. All times are Eastern Daylight Saving Time (EDT). If you are not located in Eastern United States, use this site to convert those times into your own timezone. This month we added webinars from the Nonprofit Marketing Guide to the list.
Join @TechSoup, @Datakind and @plus_socialgood for the June #NPTechChat chat on how data is fueling social change. A TechSoup Global project, #NPTechChat is a new monthly Twitter-chat series for social change activists that’s focused on reducing barriers and increasing impact using technology around the globe. Thanks to our marketing sponsor, +Social Good.
Data is a tremendously powerful resource with the potential to move the needle on tough humanitarian challenges. The same algorithms and techniques that help companies boost profits can help social change organizations increase their impact. However, many organizations aren’t taking full advantage. Go beyond using data for simple counting and reporting – use it to change the world!
Learn how data science can help your organization improve its decision-making and advance your mission. Come ready to ask questions and share how you’re using data to make an impact!
