NTEN & NetSquared Nonprofit Tech Club Austin had a wonderful year. We captured our program schedule and other important information in an Adobe Spark video. Here is a link to watch it on the Adobe Spark platform. Needless to say, I learned about Adobe Spark during a prior tech club program and I use it a lot in my work and volunteering. This video has become an important way to recognize our supporters.

Our club is organized and managed solely by volunteers. Our expert guest speakers share their knowledge free of charge as a public service. Capital Factory has hosted most of our programs the prior two years free of charge, and they provide onsite tech support and live broadcast/streaming via Austin Tech Live on YouTube. Other venue hosts have provided lunch and free wireless! Trianon Coffee has graciously donated gourmet coffee gifts for our guest speakers the past two years. This year, General Assembly provided a 50% discount on classes through the end of 2019. We are #grateful.

We thank Eli Van Der Geissen of TechSoup for his thoughtful, detailed attention to any and all of our local tech club needs. NTEN's Tristan Penn supports us from HQ in Portland, Oregon. Our key volunteers include:

Carolyn M. Appleton (nonprofit fundraising and communications professional) | Stacy Dyer (Trianon Coffee) | Susannah Erler (Greater Good Geek and Austin Community College | Daniela Nunez (Consumer Reports) | Dale Durant Thompson (accounting expert)

Thanks to everyone involved with #NPTechClubATX. It takes a team to do all the work involved in managing our club, and we've had a great one. Happy holidays!
