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.
We’re three quarters of the way through TechSoup’s fiscal year. Whooo!
I’ve compiled the stats for NetSquared for March and for the first three months of 2016.
You’ll see growth has been very strong, which can largely be attributed to the amazing energy of our organizer community and the investments we’ve made into the Regional Ambassadors who offer in-person training events and online support to local NetSquared organizers. The expansion of NetSquared’s reach means we’re helping more nonprofits use technology to make more good in the world!
Last week’s community call was really productive. Thanks to everyone who attended one of the two calls (you know who you are!) I appreciate your commitment to the community and eagerness to share your local best practices.
