NCTech4Good gathers together nonprofit staff and technology consultants to collaborate, innovate, and explore ways to use technology to advance the mission of nonprofit organizations. We support nonprofits with training and networking. Join us to make the world a better place!
NCTech4Good Consists of…
Our TechSoup Connect Group, connecting Triangle-area nonprofits, meets on the third Thursday of the month, usually from Noon – 1:00 pm. Meetups are small and informal, with a tilt towards discussion and interaction, not just strict presentation. Over the years we have held more than 140 Meetups.
Our group has grown to more than 1200 nonprofit staff, board, and volunteers, plus consultants who work with nonprofits. Small business owners are welcome. Members represent healthcare providers, research and government agencies and service providers, designers and developers, innovators and social entrepreneurs.
We gather folks from around our region yearly for a day or two of learning and networking, with a format that varies from day-long hands-on training through concurrent conference sessions to unconference style sessions that are added to the schedule when the group convenes. For example, 2014 featured Beth Kanter’s keynote session and day-long workshop on becoming a networked nonprofit, while in 2018 there were 17 pre-selected sessions and 8 sessions designed the morning of the conference. We always end the conference with Networking Happy Hour.
NCTech4Good members are encouraged to propose meeting topics, ask questions, give advice, share resources, post interesting looking local events, post job openings and volunteer opportunities.
