The 2013 “NTEN” Award: Maddie Grant

NTEN isn’t an organization, we’re a community – a community with a shared set of values, including authenticity, sharing, and of course, laughter.

Each year at the Nonprofit Technology Conference, we get the chance to celebrate one individual – of the many! – who embodies those values and enhances the NTEN community. These individuals, recipients of the annual NTEN Award, are the people working hard to move NTEN’s mission forward from within the community: always ready to share a case study, idea, or contact. They support the community by writing articles and presenting sessions and webinars. Oh, and they make us laugh, too. In short, they embody NTEN’s Values.

While we’re excited to present this award annually to a single individual, we know that a successful community is much more than than one person. So thank you for being a vital part of the NTEN community. As we celebrate the NTEN award winner, we celebrate all of you.

The 2013 NTEN Award Winner

Maddie Grant
is a classic Gen-X early adopter of technology and lover of “shiny new toys”. She’s a continual source of information and resources for nonprofits as a blogger and lead editor of the Social Fishing blog and author of Open Community: a little book of big ideas for associations navigating the social web and Humanize: How People-Centric Organizations Succeed in a Social World.

We’ve been lucky to have Maddie as the host of Online NTC for several years running, and as a contributor to the NTEN blog and supporter through the NTEN Champions Campaign. We’re big fans of Maddie and our community agrees!
