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.

Lyndal Cairns is committed to building stronger nonprofits as though our very existence depends on them. Because it does. After a decade as a newspaper and online journalist, she devoted her career to marketing for social good organizations working for sustainability, public health, education and technology. Among her proudest moments was receiving the 2015 NTEN Award for services to the nonprofit tech sector; and watching billboard ads for the Queensland AIDS Council being reinstated after a million-strong social media campaign against the homophobic decision to remove them. She and her team are currently working on a membership growth strategy for NTEN, as well as rebranding efforts. When not working, Lyndal can usually be found making mixtapes or digging in her garden.
