It is with excitement that I announce these new additions to the NTEN family.
First, a new face on the NTEN staff, with Bethany Lister, our new Community Program Coordinator. She will be working closely with Julia, James, and Megan to make sure our programs are as community-driven as possible – listening through social media and evaluation, working with communities of practice and tech clubs, and collaborating with speakers and community members. (If you have ideas about how NTEN could better deliver programs to help you and your staff, Bethany and the whole team would love to hear from you.)
You may already know Bethany, as she’s been an active part of the NTEN community online and a co-organizer of the Portland Tech4Good group. Please join me in welcoming her to the team!
We are also adding four new board members to the NTEN Board of Directors, and couldn’t be happier about all of the experience, ideas, and general #nptech nerdery that they all bring. Joining the board are:
- Gayle Samuelson Carpentier, Chief Business Development Officer at TechSoup Global
- Jereme Bivins, Digital Media Manager at Rockefeller Foundation
- Maddie Grant, Digital Strategist, Lead Editor at SocialFish
- Miriam Barnard, Organizational Development and Fundraising Strategist
If you’re attending the 2014 NTC next week, be sure to say hi to Bethany, Gayle, Jereme, and Maddie, and welcome them to the NTEN family. You can learn more about NTEN staff and board on the website, but we are all always available to learn more about what you’re doing and how we can help.
