Hello from the clear skies 30,000 feet somewhere above Mississippi! I’m on my way to San Jose, CA today for the Nonprofit Technology Conference.
It’s my favorite national conference for nonprofit communicators.
Even if you can’t attend in person, you can still gain a ton from this conference. Each session includes “collaborative notes” which are Google Docs where attendees add insights from the sessions and panelists include links to their presentations. They are FULL of great stuff.
To find the collaborative notes for any session, just go the session description page in the agenda. You’ll find a link to the notes in the right-hand sidebar.
Here are a few sessions I’m involved with . . .
