During the conference I will record the session I am attending using a handheld audio recorder and taking a few photos in order to create some “Ken Burns” style replays afterward. I would like to share some of the lessons learned from Ben Wikler and his crew from http://TheGoodFight.fm who challenges his audiences to learn to capture and share the stories of our peers supporting non-profits in their Good Fights! Our first interview for this year’s NC Tech4Good conference was posted to the conference YouTube channel: http://bit.ly/nct4g-yt-channel
The offer here is to introduce others to use of digital recorders on Thursday at mid-day and end of day, or early on Friday, so that others can capture session audio in the 2 other concurrent tracks. We can go through several post production options including just posting minimally edited audio to SoundCloud. There will have at least 3 additional recorders available for capturing audio, first-come-first served!
Is your organization struggling to move beyond spreadsheets for managing your data? Do you manage your organization’s data in multiple tools, like Eventbrite, Mailchimp, etc.? Has your organization progressed to using a proprietary crm tool, but still frustrated with the features and pricing?
CiviCRM is an open source, highly customizable CRM, with no licensing or subscription fees. Nonprofits of all sizes are using CiviCRM for sending newsletters and email appeals, fundraising, events, membership management, volunteers and more.
Roshani Kothari, Director of Strategy & Engagement at Ginkgo Street Labs, will share how organizations are using CiviCRM to get a 360 degree view of how people are engaging with their organization and tailor their communications based on their interactions.
Build a simple map importing a list of addresses, and create a public url that you can share:
1. Using ESRI ArcGIS online
2. Using Google Maps
This is intended to show the beginning steps of publishing simple maps that display location data.
Twitter Chats are the best occasion to catch up with your peers on Twitter, make new connections and get the newest nonprofit or technology buzz fast. Twitter Chats are events scheduled and conducted mostly for one hour on Twitter, using a specific #hashtag and a topic.
In this session you will learn how you can successfully participate in a Twitter chat and also how to prepare yourself to be a Twitterchat facilitator.
We will review various examples of active, regularly scheduled Twitter chats in the nonprofit field, for instance #fundchat #storymaker2014 and #npmc
We also discuss 3rd Party Tools that help you keep pace with the conversation and to curate the best-of-chat tweets and resources.
