NTEN: The Nonprofit Technology Network

Last year, NTEN launched the first cohort for the new Oregon Nonprofit Tech Readiness (ONTR) program. As we open up applications for the next cohort starting in April, you may find yourself asking questions like, “Who participates in this program?" and, "What did it mean for them?” We want to introduce you to Taylor Smith, Technical Services Manager for the Oregon Food Bank, to share his answers to these questions and a few more.

We're just a week away from kicking off the largest gathering of nonprofit technology professionals at the 2015 Nonprofit Technology Conference in Austin, TX. We wish that everyone could attend in person, but we know that's not always possible. Luckily, you can still catch a good number of sessions remotely by registering for the 2015 Online Nonprofit Technology Conference (15ONTC), which will give you access to the plenary sessions and 28 select breakout sessions on demand. 

With 15NTC just mere weeks away, there's a lot of planning to do! With 100+ sessions to choose from, a packed social event calendar, and long attendee list, how do you make the most of your conference experience? Luckily, the NTEN Community is full of advice on places to go, things to do, dishes to eat, and how to navigate NTC like a pro.

See how digital games have big impact at the 12th Annual Games for Change Festival (April 21-23 & 25), the largest gaming event in New York City. Register by Friday, February 20 for early-bird pricing, plus an additional 10% discount with the special NTEN discount code.

What does digital strategy look like in your organization? We asked, and nearly 500 of you responded! In collaboration with Care2 and hjc, we are excited to release the first ever 2015 Digital Outlook Report that captures the digital strategy landscape in nonprofits, as well as strategies in 2015 for staffing, tactics, tools, and more. Download this free report, which includes seven steps for digital strategy success in 2015.

We're kicking the 15NTC off at lightning speed with Ignite presentations. Check out these high-speed, high-energy presentations coming soon to the 15NTC main stage!

One way to take the NTC experience to a whole new level is by volunteering for the Days of Service event, hosted alongside the conference. It’s a chance for everyone who’s going to the 15NTC to give a little love back to the host community by contributing their talents to local projects.

15NTC is just five weeks away and it's time to start training. Strap on your pocket protectors, hop on your segways, and start brushing up on your lego-building skills and prepare for the annual NTC Geek Games.
