We created The Digital Nonprofit conference because after 10 years of meetups our members asked us for an event that was more “boss friendly”. A place where we could talk about digital strategy and transformation, not just practical hands-on technology implementation. But we didn't anticipate the hunger for a community-driven #Tech4Good conference. Even as we grew from 80 attendees to 225 we've continued to sell out every year. So thank you for your support! It means so much because as volunteers your encouragement is what motivates us to keep going!
The expert presenters have generously allowed us to share their slides – along with video recordings from each session.
You like numbers? Here’s NetSquared’s April stats.
The most important metric for me is the number of active groups, because it demonstrates that a city has a hub for nonprofit techies to come together and learn from each other. That it’s up 38% year-over-year makes me very pleased.
Let's highlight the exertise of our members! May's suggested topic, the Technology Show and Tell, is my favorite event format because it's crowdsourced. That means you don't have to recruit a presenter. :-)
How does it work? Participants are given up to 5 minutes to share one tool that helps make them more productive. It can be a CRM, communication tool, fundraising platform, some social media magic-sauce or other clever web tool that helps further their mission, or get work done.
Examples include: Trello, Canva, screencasting, data visualization tools, pivot charts, etc. But your members will definitely surprise you with their demos!
