Interview with Erin Adams, NTEN’s Digital Marketing Manager

NTEN is proud to welcome Erin Adams, our new Digital Marketing Manager. Erin comes to us from NPR, with more than 15 years of experience in nonprofit marketing and communications.

1. What are you most excited about as you join NTEN?

Aside from the dog-friendly office and the oh-so-welcoming colleagues? I’m thrilled to have a role in helping a wide range of organizations use tech to make change, do good, and expand their reach.

2. Who is your favorite author, and why?

Ann Patchett, because she writes with seemingly effortless flow about the beauty and complexity of human relationships and connections. Her last novel, Commonwealth, was a stunner. I also love that she co-owns an independent bookstore and bookmobile in Nashville, Tenn. Genius idea — like a food cart for books!

3. What nonsense word or phrase really annoys you?

“Cool beans.” I get hives when someone says it.

4. If you were an NTEN email subject line, what would you say?

“Sharing IS Caring.” It’s a cliche, but it’s true. I’m always working to exchange stories and smart ideas, make connections, and be kind.

This is the home of nonprofit professionals learning about the ways technology helps them meet their missions. More than 50,000 community members access NTEN’s capacity-building programs and services, including educational courses, the Nonprofit Technology Conference, and online and in-person discussion spaces.
