Tag: NTEN Awards

The NTEN community is filled with amazing individuals who change the world every day. Each year, we honor an individual who has been instrumental in shaping the field of nonprofit technology, and paved the way for the rest of us. Past winners have had a hand in creating and funding the biggest organizations in our space, built nonprofit technology communities large and small, and are exploring and sharing some of the most interesting and innovative technology models.

Past Lifetime Achievement Winners:

While we’re grateful to all members of NTEN, there are, of course, those of you who go beyond the proverbial “call of duty” and impact the NTEN community by providing extra time, resources, and wisdom to assist NTEN’s work in this sector. We call you “rockstars” here on this blog (a lot), but each spring, at NTEN’s annual conference, we like to do more than that. We like to annoint a new crop of these nonprofit tech warriors with their very own set of aNTENnae, signifying their special contributions to this special community.

Today, at the 2013 Nonprofit Technology Conference in Minneapolis, we unveiled the #13ntc NTENnies and their unique contributions to the NTEN community:
