Community Call with Tech Experts: Get Answers and Resources to Move Your Organization Forward

Earlier this year, NTEN rolled out an improved Tech Accelerate. This free benchmarking tool connects your organization to resources to help you understand where to invest in improving your technology plans, policies, and infrastructure.

This spring, we’re expanding this commitment by offering additional support for you to evaluate your technology, get direct, expert advice from community members, and apply for a small grant to begin your improvements.

Complete your organization’s free Tech Accelerate assessment by Tuesday, May 7, and you’ll receive access to an exclusive Community Call with an expert panel to give advice and recommendations about your results. The panel includes Emilio Arocho, Kayleigh Collins, and others whose diverse perspectives and tech backgrounds can provide guidance to move you and your organization forward.

Learn more about new resources to support your organization’s Tech Accelerate assessment.
