Meet the NTEN Community

The NTEN Community is full of great folks. Here are just a few of them.

Pamela Cooney

World Computer Exchange(WCE)

I work for World Computer Exchange(WCE), a global environment and educational nonprofit with strong deployment skills and a network of thousands of grassroots groups in 68 developing countries.  Since 1999, WCE has helped connect a million youth in developing countries to the skills, opportunities and understanding of the Internet ~ while keeping working computers out of landfills.

 I am not an IT person per se, but rather as a general administrator responsible for coordinating volunteer recruitment and volunteer chapters in the US and finances.

Chad Norman

Blackbaud

Chad is the Internet Marketing Manager for Blackbaud, where he wrangles corporate website content, develops social media 2009 NTENny Winnerstrategy, and manages email marketing, communities, and search engine optimization. He's the editor-in-chief of Blackbaud Blogs, where he also writes Webby Things. He hosts and produces The Baudcast, which brings together industry experts from around the sector to discuss nonprofit technology. In 2007, Chad founded Go Green Charleston, a technology-focused nonprofit helping Charleston-area residents connect, stay informed, and mobilize around the local sustainability community. When he's not mainlining the web, you'll probably find Chad playing with my kids, skateboarding, taking photos, or enjoying mother nature.

Lou August

Save the Children

Lou is the Director of Technology Partnerships at Save the Children, a large international non-profit organization, where he builds 2009 NTENny Winnertechnology education and economic opportunity programs for countries in the developing world.

When not travelling the globe to show-off the cool donor platform, he lives in Olathe with 3 full size Cow Parade cows, a dog, cat -- and a wife who travels almost as much as he does! An avid golfer, sailor, and recreational chef, he is a NY and Boston transplant wondering where the water is in Kansas.
