The Nonprofit Technology Conference (NTC) is the premiere annual conference for people working at the intersection of technology and social change. It is a supportive and diverse conference—with a good dose of humor and fun—for people of all backgrounds and areas of the sector, from beginners to seasoned nonprofit techies and everyone in between.

The 2016 NTC will take place in San Jose, California on March 23-25. We use a community-driven process to help us gather and curate the possible sessions used to eventually build out the educational content for the conference.

We want to invite you to join us as we share all the details on what you need to prepare your session submissions for this coming year. We’ll cover the overall process, updates on the platform we are using, feedback from last year’s participants on what they want, and some general tips on how to put together the best possible proposal.

At NTEN, we are committed to creating a diverse, safe, and welcoming space for Community members to learn and share. We strive to receive conference session proposals from the a wide range of voices and perspectives. So whether you have spoken at the NTC in the past or this will be your first time submitting we encourage to contribute, participate, and get engaged with the Community.

Please join us Wednesday, May 20 at 11am PST / 2pm EST for the free webinar.
