NTEN: The Nonprofit Technology Network

The inaugural Leading Change Summit (LCS) in San Francisco is coming up fast! In true NTEN fashion, we experimented with Instagram to answer a few common LCS questions through video:

Last week I met some rock stars of the data visualization world (yes, it’s true, there is such a world) at the Data Visualization Knowledge Summit hosted by Periscopic in Portland. The Summit featured a panel discussion with guest speakers: Alberto Cairo, Professor/Author; Kennedy Elliott, Web Developer, Washington Post; Scott Murray, Author/Coder; and Sarah Slobin, Visual Journalist, Wall Street Journal. Although this was a pretty wide-ranging discussion, they all had in common one thing: a high comfort level with uncertainty (not in the strictly statistical sense, however). That was the most inspiring and comforting thing of all.

We are excited to release the 8th Annual Nonprofit Technology Staffing and Investments Report: Learn more and download the latest report today!

The Maker Party starts today - and you’re invited to attend, no matter where you are in the world! Take part in the global effort to learn and move beyond simply consuming the web to understanding and creating it, so it remains open and accessible to all.

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: Peter Campbell, a Facilitator for the Future of Technology track.

This September 3-6, NTEN will debut the Leading Change Summit. In addition to the conversations with participants in three separate tracks, #14LCS includes a stellar lineup of keynote speakers who will spark new conversations and nudge existing conversations to introduce new questions. Today we’re excited to share that Deena Pierott, founder of the White House honored youth program called iUrban Teen Tech, will offer a keynote called Moving from Diversity to Inclusion: Changing landscapes of nonprofit technology.

Here's what your fellow NTEN Members have been up to this summer!

After thinking and talking about it for a long time, this year we at NTEN are finally beginning a website overhaul and re-launch in earnest. After all, the nonprofit association for people working at the intersections of tech and social change should have a website to match that mission and vision. Follow along as we chronicle the joys and occasional headaches.

NTEN is excited to announce we will be working with Pongos Interactive to implement our new site. Pongos is a Wordpress development firm located in Maryland.
