TechSoup’s NetSquared is the world's largest volunteer-driven network of in-person nonprofit technology training and peer support events. We have groups in 24 countries and last year we held 835 events helping 12,943+ nonprofit employees, board members, volunteers, and community leaders.
Highlights from FY16 (July 2015 to June 2016)
TechSoup has just completed our fiscal year, so we are looking back at what we've accomplished. Check out NetSquared’s year-in-review and discover what topics are most popular with our attendees and how NetSquared organizers are creating communities of practice for TechSoup members. Other bright spots include:
Continued improvements to http://www.NetSquared.org, including the ability to automatically detect the location of visitors for more accurate search results.
Expansion of the Regional Ambassador program to seven representatives (up from four the previous year). Most NetSquared organizers now have a peer mentor.
NetSquared groups held 23 Storymakers events, helping local nonprofits use video strategically.
I attended NCTech4Good in North Carolina in June where I gave a presentation on storytelling (although more important than that is the super awesome people I connected with: some old and some new friends).
Our technology for good meet-up for July is a little different from usual. Rather than having a topic and a speaker we are instead meeting for an informal get together and chat ... about life, technology, social organisations, digital things ... Socialising For Social Good!
