Mapping Your Data

When: Tuesday, January 12

RSVP: http://www.meetup.com/net2van/events/227120918/

Data can make you powerful! But it needs to be handled cautiously too. Join us for a discussion of how your nonprofit can discover surprising new truths by mapping your existing data and hear case studies from nonprofits and campaigners who are already using these powerful techniques, including political parties and charity marketers.

Nonprofit Technology Show and Tell

When: Tuesday, February 2

RSVP: http://www.meetup.com/net2van/events/227347166/

This is a crowdsourced session, where participants are given up to five minutes to share a tool they use in their non-profit tech life. Learn from the best - each other. Share anything that helps you do the amazing work you do. It can be a CRM, communication tool, fundraising platform, some social media magic-sauce, automation or other clever web genius that helps you further your mission or cause or execute your work. We only ask that you can show the solution and say what and why you use it.

Dreamers + Doers

We’re looking for amazing grassroots organizations or individuals to tell us about their projects. We’ll pick our top five to pitch their cause live at our next event where attendees will vote on who we choose to support with our Dreamers + Doers prize pack, which includes $1000 cash, social media management tools, a professional photography session, video and more. It’s a simple process to submit, and costs nothing. Write down in 300 words or less what you’re currently doing, and how we can help you.
