Coronavirus: Caring for the #SFTech4Good Community

Of course, I'd love to be in the middle of planning the next in-person events. It became clear in late February that the viral threat was growing exponentially and planning for the March event was officially canceled on March 3rd. I always love it when an event comes together with a room full of enthusiastic people who are there to network and learn. Now the health and safety of this community, the Bay Area, our country, and the world take precedence. This is a reminder to us all about how connected we are.

Net2 Community Call — How to Respond to COVID-19

What does the cancelation of live events mean for your NetSquared group?

COVID-19 is forcing NetSquared organizers to be flexible. Join me and Susan Tenby, TechSoup's new Global Director of Community, for a call about how NetSquared's leaders (that's you!) can best respond to the emerging situation.

RSVP — 9:00 AM PT, Tuesday March 24.

We'll answer your questions like:

  • Should I cancel my upcoming events? And if so, how?
  • I haven't started my group yet... what can I now NOW?
  • Are virtual events an option? How can I use the NetSquared Zoom room?
  • What resources are available to help me and my local community work from home?

Plus, this is your opportunity to let TechSoup's new Global Director of Community learn how we can best support your grassroots community work.

Disaster planning webinar promo

Let's help nonprofits prepare for the worst — and plan for the best. In this webinar recording for NetSquared organizers, TechSoup's Daphne Lagios guides you through the resources available to host your own disaster resiliency workshop.

Whether it's an earthquake, a wildfire, a massive storm, or a human-caused mishap, a disaster can seriously impact a nonprofit's ability to carry out their mission. Learn about The Resilient Organization, TechSoup's comprehensive (and free!) guide to IT disaster planning and recovery. We will help you kick-start a NetSquared event on IT disaster response plans.

We also talked about the new Disaster Recovery online course — which is free for NetSquared leaders (just contact your community manager).
