We created The Digital Nonprofit conference because after 10 years of meetups our members asked us for an event that was more “boss friendly”. A place where we could talk about digital strategy and transformation, not just practical hands-on technology implementation. But we didn’t anticipate the hunger for a community-driven #Tech4Good conference. Even as we grew from 80 attendees to 225 we’ve continued to sell out every year. So thank you for your support! It means so much because as volunteers your encouragement is what motivates us to keep going!
The expert presenters have generously allowed us to share their slides – and we professionally recorded half the sessions, with the other half available through recorded livestream video.
Conferences don’t happen without a crew. We are grateful to our volunteers for running the show. We are in debt to the presenters who contributed their expertise. And we can’t thank the sponsors who underwrote the event enough, since they enabled us to create an accessible event for you, our #Tech4Good community.
Our sponsors are investing in our community because they share our conviction that nonprofits need the power of technology to do more good. Give them your attention and $$!
What’s your productivity secret? What tools make you look like a magician to your coworkers?
At the May 8 NetSquared Vancouver meetup Chad Leaman hosted our annual Technology Show and Tell – it’s your chance to share the gadgets inside your toolshed.
Our guest presenters each got up to five minutes to showcase a wide range of low-cost or free online tools available to nonprofits today. Each tip had the goal of helping us communicate better with workers, volunteers and stakeholders, and work more efficiently.
Check out the videos. You’re bound to learn a few things that change the way you work.
Net2van is delighted to share the slides and video from our April 3 meetup. The workshop featured guest presenters from Legacy Advantage, a local team of accountants and bookkeepers with nonprofit expertise.
Nonprofits have it tough. Not only are you working with a limited budget, you are also required meet a high level of compliance. Concerns and confusion around compliance can eat up precious resources and distract you from achieving your mission.
If your nonprofit doesn’t have its books in order, then ensuring you are compliant with tax regulations can be a real drain on resources. Accounting software can help, but only if you know how to use it effectively. In this workshop, Bob Wang and Jean Elwell of Legacy Advantage share some guidance on how to run an audit-proof nonprofit. In the presentation they focus specifically on QuickBooks (desktop version available through TechSoup Canada’s product catalogue), but many of their insights and best practices are applicable to any accounting system.
Webinars can be your secret tool for scaling your service delivery, training, and recruitment.
Local webinar experts Tonya Hyde and Chad Leaman presented case studies at the March 6 Net2van meetup on why their organizations pursued webinars as part of fulfilling their mission.
Tonya Hyde covers the pros and cons of the medium, best practices and things learned the hard way, benchmark webinar platforms, and walk you through the process of delivering a successful webinar: planning, recruiting speakers, marketing, delivery techniques, and follow-up.
What makes for a good annual report? What makes a modern annual report?
