MAM Week 2: Congrats to last week’s winners and here’s what’s in store this week!

Member Appreciation Month (MAM) celebrations are underway! One week in and we’ve already had several free-for-Member webinars, prizes, and best of all, lots of #ntenthanks from community members sharing their gratitude for and with one another.

My biggest #ntenthanks was getting to kick off the MAM celebrations by hosting the 2014 NTEN Year in Review: Community Impact webinar. I have to say, my eyes got misty when I listened to several NTEN Members on the webinar share how their experiences with various NTEN programs have made a difference in their work. If you missed the webinar, I encourage you to check out the recording and get inspired by these amazing folks.

This week, our engagement prize — a 1-month subscription to Foundation Directory Online from The Foundation Center — goes to Richard Mussler-Wright from NTEN Member partner, Idaho Nonprofit Center. Richard has been spreading the word about MAM and NTEN’s partnership program to Idaho Nonprofit Center members. He even went above and beyond this week to help get a Member signed up just in time to take part in a webinar.

And we’re not sure how he does it, but once again, David Krumlof, of The Pierce Family Foundation, was the very first person to register for the NTC. As a thank you for being our first registrant for years in the running, David won a free conference registration for next fall’s Leading Change Summit.

Congratulations to our winners:

  • Jennifer Errick, from the National Parks Conservancy, won a handy thumb drive from TechSoup Global
  • Barbara Ayotte, of Management Services for Health, received a mini-engagement assessment from Beaconfire
  • Kodi Seaton, of The Pew Charitable Trusts, scored a Higher Logic rotatable mobile charger and flashlight
  • Neil Zarchin, of Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano, walked away with two one-hour sessions of consulting services from Cloud for Good
  • Erica Butler, from GoodWorks, won a special prize package from Jackson River
  • Michael Mesolowski, of Malignant Hyperthermia of the United States, secured 3-book bundle curtesy of The Foundation Center
  • Celine Felan, of Blackbaud, and Steve Scholl-Buckwald, of Pesticide Action Network North America, both snagged NTEN swag bags
