Remember when you were new to the NetSquared community? Was it hard to connect with the global network? That's why we're launching a new program, the NetSquared Welcoming Team. The goal is to improve the experience for everyone by strengthening our online community of organizers.
The NetSquared Welcoming Team will support new organizers as you join our Facebook group or Slack. The Welcoming Team be there to greet you, point you to our most useful resources, and connect you to your fellow organizers (especially those that are in the same region).
The welcoming team's term is six months, starting January 2019. Please join me in congratulating the first cohort and thanking them for their deep commitment to the Tech4Good community.
How healthy, happy, and engaged are the NetSquared organizers? After running a survey for four years I've learned that approximately 80% of members are "satisfied" and that 97% believe they will still be hosting events in six months (definitely untrue! The average term of a new organizer is 14 months!)
But the level of satisfaction percentage isn't granular enough for me to determine how TechSoup can make the NetSquared organizer experience better. The goal is to have more organizers (quantity) delivering better events (quality) over a longer duration (retention). But how do we build our ideal community?
In this presentation campaigners and fundraisers from any size organization will learn to use big data in a way they haven’t before. They will learn how to better target their messaging to influence people within their organization’s community to encourage them to give a gift or volunteer.
Whether through a direct mail appeal, cross fundraising approach or a face to face ask, data can help.
Join SFTech4Good, Startups Give Back, and social impact professionals from some of the most recognizable companies on the planet to learn about what it takes to start and grow a social impact career in a corporate setting. Thanks to Optimizely for hosting too!
Attendees will hear from a panel of high caliber speakers who will share advice and insights based on their experience as social impact practitioners. This includes:
How they got into the social impact profession
How they see the profession evolving as more companies look to scale their social impact efforts
Advice they would give people who are looking to launch their careers in social impact
