Tech Integration Fundamentals

Members $125/Non-members $250

NTEN courses run for one week and are offered twice a year.

This was a great session. I always love hearing about new tools and software and new ways to use them or think about using them. The worksheet provided with the homework will be very helpful.

Course Overview


Learn what integrations are and why they’re vital for growth


Rethink your day-to-day tasks and consider how micro-services can help


Unlock superpowers with web services that will enrich your organization


Unlock the power of connecting your systems to save you time and energy, and help your organization meet its goals more efficiently.

Working with technology, we frequently hear about new services. This intro-level course will show you how to tell which systems and tools are right for you, and what questions you should ask to make sure they integrate in a way that makes your life easier. With new services for CRMs and other databases launching daily, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed and to procrastinate (or even ignore) opportunities that can help your work. Let’s tackle those questions together, and explore these services in a new light.

Join us to gain a rich understanding of how integrations work, and why they can work magic. We’ll analyze your daily tasks and the hard things you don’t enjoy. Then we’ll dive into real integrations for your digital properties and fundraising strategies.

This course was previously titled Tech Integrations for Success.
