We had a fantastic evening last night with Alison McCaffree of Washington Nonprofits and Dave Forrester of 501 Commons (plus 50-60 attendees). They both talked about what their respective organizations are doing, helping the nonprofit sector and how they differ as well as cross pollinate. I talked about why it is so great working with nonprofits and why "you should too!"
Afterwards we had a networking session where Nonprofits chose technical subject areas they wanted to talk with a techie about and we posted them in card holders at the tables. Great conversations were had!
I hard things like "I never knew..." and "I learned so much!" New friendships and connections were made. People walked away feeling inspired.
I will be posting pictures and slides soon.
Again, special thanks to NTEN and Techsoup, Fuse IQ (food and wine), the Impact Hub (space), and North Coast Brewery (beer)!
Our next event will be OCTOBER 23RD, and November is member appreciation month! Fun stuff ahead!
