[Net2 Wellington] Upcoming, upcomings: two conferences, meetup

Here are a couple of things coming up that I thought y'all might be interested in, but first a question:

1. Google Grants for Nonprofits - a meetup topic?

Please get in touch if you're willing to share your experiences - good, bad, earth shattering, or indifferent. READ MORE

It shows the potential for us as global citizens to share good ideas and practical tools to make the world a better place. Anyone with a 3-D printer and crafty fingers can print off and construct the trophy. READ MORE

Co-organiser meet-up on the Gold Coast

imprending storms, gold coast by paul bicaThere is nothing better than sitting down, face-to-face to enthuse with other community organisers about things like nonprofit technology, running dynamic meetups and the state of the world.
Add to this a beach vista, ocean breeze and warm temperatures. Then throw in Australia’s largest nonprofit technology conference.
