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

Sheldon Mains helps nonprofit organizations improve service to their communities. This may be planning new technology, evaluating current technology, integrating technology into the day-to-day operations of the organization or getting the organization to think in totally new ways. Sheldon is passionate about using technology to help nonprofits tell their stories and advocate for important issues. He believes that technology change should be combined with business practice and organizational changes to have the most positive impact.
Crown Philanthropic Solutions
Bill Hewitt is a 30+ year financial services veteran who currently leads the national marketing initiatives for Crown Philanthropic Solutions. 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.
Doug is the CEO of Community Information Strategies Australia (CISA) Inc., the leading body for the community information and technology sector in Australia. In 2003 he established the www.communit.info website as an IT resource for Australian nonprofits. In 2004 he established the first Australian national conference on IT capacity development for nonprofit organisations, called Connecting Up. In 2007 Doug led CISA into partnership with TechSoup to establish the DonorTec program, which is on target to save Australian nonprofits over $20m annually by channelling IT donations from the corporate sector, including Microsoft and Cisco products, as well as locally sourced products and services.

When she went to work for AOL in 2000, every day -- in one of their 5 cafeterias, there was a "retirement" party for someone WHO WAS 40 years old! She sat at a desk where someone had recently been laid-off -- she was 27 and worth $27 million. Working at AOL was great fun but sh got there a little late to enjoy early retirement. She did get experience which she now puts to work for important matters like food, water, consumer advocacy. And she's having a BETTER time working than all those early retirers. That's what she keep telling herself, anyway . . .
