Contessa Siegner has been an NTEN member since 2016.
What’s your current position?
I’m the IT Director at Proverbs 31 Ministries and live in Charlotte, North Carolina. I have been at Proverbs 31 Ministries for three and a half years and I oversee all technology at Proverbs 31 and have been in the IT & Web industry for over 15 years. Prior to my role here, I spent 13 years at Cisco Systems in Raleigh, North Carolina in various IT roles.
What would you say most motivates you to do what you do?
I love working at Proverbs 31 Ministries and using my gifts and talents for an organization that I believe in wholeheartedly. We’ve experienced tremendous growth in the past few years and I enjoy setting new strategic technology goals as we grow and expand.
What’s been the most helpful for you about being in the NTEN member community?
I had the honor of attending my first Nonprofit Technology Conference last year in DC and loved connecting with other individuals who also work in the technical field of nonprofits. It is so good to share ideas and best practices. I love that I can throw out a question to our NTEN community about a problem that I am trying to solve and hear feedback and solutions that have already been implemented.
Tell us about a recent win (professional or personal).
We just recently rolled out a new website that will allow us to offer up our content in better ways. We are working on a phase 2 which will improve our search to offer up opportunities for people to find content even easier. We are super excited about this initiative.
What tech tool could you not live without?
What’s a nonprofit tech-related tip have you learned recently that has blown your mind?
Not exactly mind-blowing, but I love it when we learn of new ways to integrate tools to give us a better picture of our constituents.
