Gathering face-to-face is a great opportunity.
NTEN’s annual Nonprofit Technology Conference (NTC) is an obvious time to gather the online community together in-person. (Talk to NTEN’s Community Manager about supporting you in gathering the nonprofit tech community together at other conferences or events.) Some ideas are below. Work with NTEN’s Community Manager to help you make it happen.
- Birds of a Feather (BOF) lunch tables
- Dedicated session slot for open discussion
- Group photos
- Meet up for meals or outings
The Women in Nonprofit Tech group came to be because of a session at the 14NTC. Former organizer Michelle Regal celebrated the group’s first birthday by bringing a card for the community to sign during 15NTC.
