NTEN: The Nonprofit Technology Network

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.

Planning to attend the 2015 Nonprofit Technology Conference in Austin, TX? We hope so—and we hope you’ll take a moment to vote for your favorite session proposals. The NTC agenda is created by the community, so your votes are critical for helping shape the program.

Last week, during the quarterly staff retreat, NTEN staff toured Free Geek. Free Geek is a technology reuse, recycle, and education nonprofit based in Portland, OR. Several NTEN staff have been long-time supporters and NTEN has always donated its old electronics to Free Geek. It’s was great to get out of the office together and see the good work being done with technology and nonprofits right here in Portland.
