Calling all do-gooders, technologists, leaders, activists, nonprofits, funders, and everyone interested in using technology for progress: We're having a Tech Knowledge-y Show & Tell!
This meetup invites you to share your top digital tool and/or lifehack that helps you make better use of your time. Examples of tools we use are Doodle, Eventbrite, and Mailchimp -- please share yours in the comment box!
We'll start with a 5-minute Show & Tell of some of our tools and best practices, then open up the floor round-robin style for each of you to take 5 minutes to share something that has helped you (and could help others) with nonprofit marketing, fundraising, and/or community management. It could be a CRM, communication tool, crowdfunding platform, social media magic-sauce, web platform or other clever online or mobile tool that helps you do the work and further your mission or cause.
Don't bring a slide deck! Just come prepared to demo your favorite tools and techniques...and to take notes. :-) This is your opportunity to share your knowledge, network, connect and help others. Come one, come all...and bring a friend!
Newbies will find a friendly, welcoming atmosphere with many opportunities to learn from tech-experienced nonprofits and experts.
Technologists, funders and service providers will be able to put their super powers to good use and grow lasting relationships with leading organizations in the community.
Activists and leaders will share how they use technology for social change: We'll learn the true potential for tech through specific case studies, examine where and how community organizing can be improved, and explore where we'll have to push technology forward.
NetSquared's vision is to make it easy, meaningful, and fun for people and organizations to get the information, visibility and in-person support they need to maximize technology for social good. Come be a part of growing #Net2Houston 2.0!
