MAM Week 3: Congrats to last week’s winners and here’s what’s in store this week!

beasleydavid.tweet_.preview.pngIt’s hard for us to believe, but we’re already halfway through Member Appreciation Month (MAM)! Taking the glass-is-half-full approach, that means there are still lots of free webinars to take advantage of, tons of prizes to give out, and of course, plenty of NTEN thanks!

This week, Steve Heye won our engagement prize: webinars for life from Idealware! Many people in the community know Steve to be a tireless nonprofit technology champion and supporter of the NTEN Community. And it’s true – he’s been a generous #ntenthanks tweeter and an active webinar participant throughout MAM. He’s also a member of NTEN’s Membership Committee and gave a great presentation at the Minnesota Council of Nonprofit’s annual conference, Nonprofits in Motion, earlier this month in St. Paul.

Congratulations to all of our winners from week 2 of MAM:

  • Buzz Moran, from the Salvage Vanguard Theater, won a 1-month subscription to Foundation Directory Online from the Foundation Center
  • Joel Macaluso, with iMedia, received a cool rotatable mobile charger and flashlight with logo from Higher Logic
  • Austin Roelofs, from Kids’ FoodBasket, scored a Foundation Center 3-book bundle
