We invite you to join RoundTable Technology at NPCC's Inaugural Best Nonprofit Conference, the culminating event of The New York Community Trust 2018 Nonprofit Excellence Awards, and NPCC's first full-day conference focused on nonprofit management practices. RoundTable will be presenting a session called "What the Tech? How to Use What You’ve Got Strategically".
Nonprofits face all sorts of challenges around technology. Nonprofit leaders wonder if the technologies they are using are right for their organization or, if they are the right technologies, whether they’re using them effectively. How can nonprofit leaders know whether the challenges they face can be addressed through the adoption of new technology, better use of existing technology, or if their challenges are even technology-related at all?
Using the NPCC “NED Talk” format, Joshua Peskay from RoundTable will present approximately 20-30 minutes on best practices around technology management for nonprofits. This will include engagement with the audience in the form of moving surveys and other interactions.
This will be followed by a review of the NPCC Information Technology Checklist and an overview of other technology self-assessment tools available for free. Participants will then take an interactive survey to see where their organizations stand in relation to others in the room in key technology areas (all responses anonymous).
We’ll then hear from the excellence winner in the area of Information Technology who will tell us a bit about who they addressed their IT challenges.
Last, we’ll spend some time discussing challenges faced by those in the room and provide guidance and suggestions for concrete steps they can take to move toward excellence in the area of technology.
