Meet the NTEN Community
The NTEN Community is full of great folks. Here are just a few of them.
Dale is currently the Financial Manager and Acting Executive Director of Austin Free-Net, a nonprofit providing community computer labs and training and tech support for nonprofits and community-based organizations in Austin, Texas. She also coordinates the Austin 501 Tech Club meetings and Lunch Bytes trainings for Accidental Techies in Nonprofits with help from fabulous volunteers. She received the 2006 Dewey Winburne Community Service Award at the SXSW Interactive Festival for her work organizing computer volunteers to assist Katrina evacuees in Austin and continues to work with the Red Cross in central Texas to evaluate and improve their online volunteer applications, training and disaster planning.
After spending many years in both the nonprofit and private sectors working with information and technology, Mary found her home in the NTAP world in 2003. It’s the perfect blend of serving people helping other people and using technology to inspire their imagination. Mary serves as the director of the InfoTAP program with Nonprofit Management Solutions. Through InfoTAP, Mary and her team assist organizations with technology planning, networking needs, database planning and implementation and her favorite Websites! NTEN has served as a principle resource for Mary’s work with nonprofits in San Diego.
In my role as Interactive Communications Manager at Convio, I manage the Connection Cafe blog, all things new media related including our social media sites as well as all Convio Web sites. An Internet-addicted, new media loving communications professional, I'm always eager to learn about the latest and greatest in interactive communications and online marketing. The ability to pair my work in online communications with helping our nonprofit clients in the process makes my job even more fulfilling.
In my spare time, you can usually find me spending time outdoors in an Austin water hole with my two pups, gardening, curling up and reading a great book, playing a competitive game of Wii bowling or watching the long list of programs I regularly schedule to record on my DVR.
And true to my NTENy award -- you can always find me on Twitter at @jordanv
Marnie is co-CEO of TechSoup Global. There, she spends most of her time working on bringing technology resources to organizations that want to spend their time and budget on their mission. She also spends an inordinate amount of time thinking, talking and tweeting about the effective use of social media, the impact of technology trends on civil society and collaboration. She also likes her kid a whole awful lot.
