Moving Your Plan Forward: Tech Committees That Work


We all have great technology plans, but how do we actually move them forward? In this session we’ll discuss how a basic technology committee can help leaders and technology professionals keep their organization focused. Committees sound boring but that doesn’t mean they’re useless. Learn practical steps for assembling and managing your committee, and discuss how a technology committee can help you nurture a culture where everyone sees technology and data as critical to furthering your mission.

Learning Outcomes

  • Techniques to sensitize your organization to stay alert for areas to better leverage technology and how to act on them
  • o Ways to maximize the benefits and reach of technology you already have
  • Approaches to crowdsource requirements and foster adoption

Project Manager and Consultant

Tech Impact

Before joining Tech Impact in 2017 I held various leadership roles in technology companies serving industrial automation and higher education. At Tech Impact I help nonprofits with strategic planning and execution, project management and data systems including Salesforce.

I’ve experienced small non-profit life first hand on the board of several Quaker organizations. My wife and I dance every chance we get, especially when we help bring Cajun and zydeco bands to Philly. I also like to sneak off saltwater fishing. Excited to be joining the conversation at NTC!

Ilene Weismehl

Knowledge and Database Manager

Community Catalyst

Ilene has worked in non-profits for over 20 years. At Community Catalyst, she oversaw the organization’s migration to Salesforce and continues to act as its system administrator. She is also guiding the organizational knowledge management strategy. The goal is to create systems that allow staff members to devote more time to their work and the organizational mission, and to spend less time looking for things.

Ilene is also a bibliophile and hosts a book stall at the Providence Flea. Plus gardening: planning it out and then maintaining it through weeding and other necessary upkeep. It all comes together.
