How the Program is Created

How do we bring you incredible sessions year after year? The secret is you, our community!

The educational program for the NTC is community-driven from the very beginning. Here’s how we do it:

1. Propose

We begin with a public call for content ideas, when NTEN members and anyone from the nonprofit technology community can submit session proposals through a form on our website.

2. Vote

Proposed sessions are voted on by the community via our website. A session advisory committee of representatives from across the sector cast their votes via a secure and private jury voting process.

3. Score

The two scores (from the community, the session advisory committee) are then combined to create an aggregate score. This aggregate score is used as the main framework for session selection.

4. Review

Finally, we review the overall selection of sessions to ensure a well-rounded program is created across five categories: program, IT, leadership, fundraising and development, and marketing and communications. For example, if there are some sessions that are very similar in topic and have high votes, we may pick the most supported one or combine the sessions. We also hold a few spots in the agenda for any timely and critical topics that may emerge.

The session proposal deadline for the 18NTC has passed. We will open the session proposal process for 19NTC in June of 2018.

Who is on the 18NTC Session Advisory Committee?

We are excited to have an amazing community volunteers helping shape the focus and educational content for 18NTC.
