NetSquared by the Numbers: April 2018

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.

Has your NetSquared Group Hosted a Speed Date for Tech Tools?

I'm feeling super energized after hanging out/learning from more than 10 other NetSquared organizers at the 18NTC conference. There's a special magic that happens when we get together in a room... as you know, since you're creating that same community-building opportunity for your own members every month.

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!

April Organizer Update: Accounting for Nonprofits and Other NetSquared Event Ideas

Happy Easter Weekend!

April is here and many nonprofits are approaching the end of their financial year. That's why this month's suggested event topic is Accounting for Nonprofits.

Sounds boring? That's what I thought too, but Finance and Accounting is a surprisingly popular topic with TechSoup's members . Every year the Quickbooks webinar is the most attended, attracting over 1,000 viewers. I suspect your members are also struggling with their finances and could use some local help too. :-)
