Hey! I’m excited to officially announce that I’m a speaker at the 2014 Nonprofit Technology Conference in Washington, D.C. It’ll be my third year attending but my first presenting at this event organized by NTEN that attracts 1600+ people from across the United States, Canada and the world who have an interest in using technology at nonprofits. It’s an interesting mix of communications, fundraising and IT folks.
I’m on two panels.
Friday, March 14 • 1:30pm – 3:00pm #14NTCWinIt
With Kate Kleinschmidt of Kiva & Jason Wilson of SOS
Official Description: Join Share Our Strength (SOS), Communicate and Howe, and Kiva as they explore what it takes to go from a digital upstart to a digital leader as a nonprofit. Learn about tools that help with project management, discuss strategies for growing your base and maximizing online revenue, track milestones to focus on as you grow your organization’s digital presence, and take away practical know-how for getting the resources you need without breaking the budget. Learn what pitfalls to avoid as you go from planning to implementation, and connect with other nonprofits that are experiencing similar challenges and successes.
My contribution: I’ll concentrate on the communications strategy used for the integrated awareness campaigns I lead for Women’s Crisis Services of Waterloo Region with a focus on the online components. So it’ll be a mix of the best practices shared in my posts about the 2012 Prince Charming/Harming campaign and the 2013 What about the kids campaign. Videos played a prominent role in both so in part I’ll look at how we shared them.
