News and resources from NTEN’s Nonprofit Tech Clubs (volunteer-led local groups of nonprofit professionals and techies who get together for regular in-person events), Communities of Practice (CoPs) (volunteer-organized affinity groups), and the NTEN online community platform (conversations about all things nonprofit tech).
February’s theme is “Community Management,” but we really feel Community is the theme of every month here at NTEN. This is thanks to everyone willing to share and support one another throughout the year.
