Talking Tech to Your Board

Boards aren’t always thrilled about approving investments in technology, yet nonprofit organizations are required to report on a multitude of topics, with little staff capacity. Board and committee meetings leave executive directors, finance, and development teams scrambling to find the resources for reporting out and managing programs. Art in Action, Oracle NetSuite Social Impact, and the Taproot Foundation will explore how to introduce innovative technology to your Board of Directors. Learn how to bring technology to your Board so they become more savvy experts and more energized about tech decisions.

Learning Outcomes

  • Identify what is missing from your board around tech capacity
  • Learn specific techniques on how to address technology to your board
  • Develop a plan on how to sustain the technology discussion/strategy with your board
