Meet the NTEN Community
The NTEN Community is full of great folks. Here are just a few of them.
Community Media Workshop
Gordon Mayer is vice president of Community Media Workshop, a Midwest nonprofit whose mission is to
diversify voices in the news and public debate. Journalists rely on its
newstips and sourcing services, and more than 2,000 nonprofit
communicators a year access the services of the Workshop: the Getting
On the Air, Online & Into Print media guide, Making Media
Connections annual conference, plus scheduled, custom, and free
workshops on communications. His exposure to social media began with 40
community organizers chanting "listserv now, listerv now!" in 1998.
It's been mostly uphill since.
Deborah Elizabeth Finn lives to bring resources and needs together seamlessly in the nonprofit sector, mostly through strategic use of information and communication technologies. She loves everything about her work except being an independent consultant, and would much rather be a cog in a machine. Her past and current clients, all of whom she adores, include Third Sector New England, the Public Conversations Project, Changing The Present, Social Markets, Earth Track, the Food Project, Massachusetts Law Reform Institute, IDEAS Boston, and the Massachusetts Nonprofit Network. She is a founding member of the Information Systems Forum, the Ethos Roundtable, Mission-Based Massachusetts, the Massachusetts Nonprofit Technology Working Group, and the Boston Technobabes. In her spare time, she captions photographs for LOLnptech.Org, reads Victorian literature, listens to Counter-Reformation liturgical music, and indulges her compulsion to introduce everyone on the planet to everyone else.
Save the Children

Previously, Lou also served at the Headquarters of the American Red Cross at the landfall of Hurricane Katrina, where he created and implemented the largest coordinated private sector disaster response in history, yielding nearly $100 million worth of aid to the gulf coast. Lou founded and is also the current president of the Wilderness Technology Alliance, a non-profit organization providing character and technology skills for the underprivileged.
Pierce Family Foundation
