NCTech4Good Conference – June 6-7, 2017

at The Solution Center in Durham

The only nonprofit technology event of its kind in North Carolina.

Join us for the 8th annual NCTech4Good Conference, June 6-7, 2017, at The Solution Center in Durham, a two-day event for sharing knowledge about technologies that can advance the mission of nonprofit organizations. This conference can help you solve technology challenges you face, and connect you to fellow do-gooders with whom you can share ideas, resources, and solutions. It features a full-day hands-on workshop and a day of pre-selected sessions, spontaneous sessions, and lots of informal exchange of information. Small business owners are welcome.

Tuesday’s sessions feature a mix of pre-selected topics with topics selected during the conference. We’ll start off looking at options for additional sessions, lunch topics, and focused conversations and plan the day. Then we’ll get going with Ignite sessions, 5-minute productions, to get us thinking, followed by up to 24 concurrent sessions. We’ll end the day with an evening social. There are lots of spaces in The Solution Center to gather and discuss the topics that you find important plus space for sponsor exhibits.

In Wednesday’s workshop, you’ll work on a particular issue (to be determined) and leave with at least a rough plan or tools in place to address the challenge.

Share your expertise at #17NCT4G!

NCTech4Good’s Conference features enlightening interactive presentations on aspects of nonprofit technology featuring people like YOU who want to share what they have learned.

Now is the time to think about the innovative work that you and your organization do and submit a concurrent session proposal or an ignite talk proposal.

What’s the difference? Ignite talks are fun, fast, and succinct. They’re strictly limited to five minutes and 20 slides. Oh, and, there’s one little catch…your slides will advance automatically every 15 seconds, and when the buzzer sounds you’re done. (Yes, seriously!) Concurrent conference sessions are an hour-long deep dive into a topic and may be presented in the format that’s best suited for your content – single or co-presenter, case studies, panels, group discussion – it’s up to you!

All sessions should be educational and may cover a variety of technology topics including, but not limited to, trending technology, communications and marketing, social media, community engagement, advocacy, web development, video creation, and fundraising.

Check out our session proposal guidelines, then submit your proposal by February 28.

Help us spread the word to folks you think might be interested in presenting or email info@nctech4good.org­ with any suggestions and/or questions.
