Session Advisory Committee

The 2018 NTC Session Advisory Committee is a group of experts, thought leaders, and champions in nonprofit technology. They provide input as part of our community-driven process to develop the high-quality educational agenda for the Nonprofit Technology Conference.

How it works

We select three committee members for each of our five content category areas (IT, leadership, program, fundraising, marketing and communications). Committee members then make meaningful contributions in three areas:

  • Desired topics: Committee members help identify critical and desired topics within their respective areas prior to opening up the process for gathering publicly submitted proposals. This provides guidance on the topics that interested session presenters can address in their applications.
  • Reviewing proposals: Committee members review proposals within their respective area and identify those that meet the needs of a balanced, content-rich agenda.
  • Missing critical topics: Committee members help identify critical or timely topics missing from the public proposals that should be included in the final agenda.

Who can participate

Participation on the advisory committee is open to NTEN community members with demonstrated expertise in one of the five category areas. With a focus on making our programming as inclusive as possible, we encourage those with diverse experience and perspectives to apply.

Time commitment

The advisory committee is active for 5 months each year (May – September). Time commitment consists of:

  • 3-4 conference calls (max 1hr each)
  • 1 hr/month for participation in online discussions (private to the group)
  • 4-6 hrs total to review of proposals
