Thank you to everyone who sent in their ideas! This year’s general sessions are a diverse line up that we at NTEN hope will help you continue to change the world through technology.
CONNECT | Thursday, March 13, 2014: Ignite Us With Your Ideas
Part of our goal this year in selecting speakers for the main stage was to feature some of the powerful dialogue that is happening around nonprofit technology. And who better to talk to us about the connections, learning, and changes in our world but from you, the community, directly?
It’s with this thinking that our opening plenary on Day 1 (Thursday, March 13) will feature 5-7 community members presenting an Ignite presentation about nonprofit technology on the main stage.
Submit your Ignite Idea through midnight, Friday, December 13. We’ll close the open call for proposals and Early Bird registration at midnight, so don’t delay in securing your place on the main stage and snagging the lowest registration rate available.
LEARN | Friday, March 14, 2013: Where Does Technology Live and Who’s in Charge?
Join a roundtable of experts to take a deep look at where technology belongs and who exactly is in charge. Following a point-counterpoint tradition, NTEN’s CEO Amy Sample Ward will facilitate a conversation with panelists Michael Enos, CTO, of the Second Harvest Food Bank, Gouri Sadhwani, CEO of the Akanksha Fund, and Rick Cohen, Director of Communications and Operations at the National Council of Nonprofits.
