NTEN: The Nonprofit Technology Network

Today I'm at MCON, an event focused on Millennial engagement. Here's a postcard of sorts from one piece of the program: the Be Fearless! Pitch-It competition. (I was especially intrigued about this part of the event because, with the help of our friends at LimeRed Studios, NTEN is planning its own Idea Accelerator at the Leading Change Summit this September.) Here are my notes, dashed off in the auditorium at #MCON14 about the pitches from Param Jaffi, Hiraa Khan, and Cabell Maddux. Check them out, and if you read this before 4:45CT today, cast your vote online for your favorite to win $2,000 to put toward their projects! 

Don't miss out! 15NTC proposals are due this Sunday, June 22. In case you missed our recent webinar, So you want to submit an NTC proposal? , we've compiled this handy dandy list of key takeaways, tips, and words of encouragement from our awesome NTEN community members about how to submit a successful NTC session proposal. Good luck!

If you register for NTEN’s first-ever Leading Change Summit this September (#14LCS), you’ll be asked to choose one of three tracks—Digital StrategyThe Future of Technology, or Impact Leadership—and you’ll spend quite a bit of time with your track-mates at the Summit. That's why we're doing our best to recruit a remarkable group of facilitators to help shape your experience. Today we want to introduce you to one of them: Deepa Kunapuli, a Lead Facilitator for the Digital Strategy track.

This September 3-6, NTEN will debut the Leading Change Summit. Today we’re excited to share that Matt Groch, Director of Solution Delivery atMission Measurement, will offer a keynote called Moneyball for Social Impact, Or how I learned to stop worrying and embrace the implications of a discrete closed-loop factor analysis framework for social impact. 

You may have attended your local Tech Club, as an attendee, speaker, or organizer. NTEN 501 Tech Clubs are informal, local groups that meet regularly in many cities. These meetings allow people interested in nonprofit technology to meet local colleagues, develop professional support networks, and talk shop in a relaxed setting.

This September 3-6, NTEN will debut the Leading Change Summit. Regardless of which department or team you’re a part of at your organization, data—the collection, analysis, and use of it for your work—has most likely come up more than once. Do you have a data plan? We are thrilled to announce Alexandra Samuel as an LCS keynote speaker, because she will change your relationship to data.

Since we first opened up the submission process for sessions at the 15NTC, we've received a lot of enthusiasm and response from our community - thank you! Many of you have asked us, "Do I need to attend the upcoming, So You Want to Submit an NTC Proposal? webinar in order to submit?" The answer: no. This webinar is completely optional. Interested parties are not required to attend in order to submit a proposal.

Register now for this free webinar on Thursday, June 12!
