Here is what Eric says about this session:

“Nonprofit organizations are uniquely susceptible to operational struggles due to inadequacies in their available tools, services, and human capital. Advances in technology have led to efficiencies and workflows that can address these exposures and advance the capacity of nonprofit entities to further their missions and serve their constituents. The aim of this session is to foster a discussion that will raise awareness and inspire insight into collaborative integrated services concepts and models, and that will showcase the exciting emerging technologies on the horizon.”

TNB Roundtable: Designing Effective Public Engagement for Nonprofits @ Boston NonProfit Center

Tech Networks of Boston (TNB) is pleased to invite nonprofit professionals to a Roundtable session on how nonprofits can design effect public engagement strategies. Our featured guest will be Eric Gordon, director of the Engagement Lab at Emerson College.

Here is what Eric says about this session:

“What does effective public engagement look like? Based on the Public Engagement Roadmap, a five-city experiment on innovative public engagement practices, this workshop will include creative ideation, team building, problem identification, and empathy building. Too often, engaging constituents remains a nebulous process without clear expectations or desired outcomes. This workshop is meant to guide nonprofits through this murky process and provide strategies for planning public engagement that is appropriate for organizations and communities. Participants will engage in design exercises and play a board game about public participation.”

Here’s a little more about Eric:

Eric Gordon is a professor of civic media at Emerson College and the director of the Engagement Lab, a research and design lab that investigates and creates media and technology to reduce disparities in civic participation. Eric’s research focuses on media-based public participation, the role of play in civic life, and the ways in which civic organizations build media and technology into their missions. Eric is a designer of civic games and interactive processes and he has consulted with the UNDP, UNICEF, and local governments around the world on building effective public participation.

TNB Roundtable: Using Nonprofit Advocacy Rules to Meet Your Mission (January 26th, Boston NonProfit Center) @ Boston NonProfit Center
Jan 26 @ 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm

Tech Networks of Boston is pleased to invite you to a Roundtable session for nonprofit organizations that want to do public advocacy.

Here’s the registration link:

https://www.eventbrite.com/e/tnb-roundtable-using-nonprofit-advocacy-rules-to-meet-your-mission-registration-41245710029?aff=mnn

The title of the January 26th session will be “TNB Roundtable: Using Nonprofit Advocacy Rules to Meet Your Mission,” and the featured guest will be Betsy Schmidt, the author of “Nonprofit Law: The Life Cycle of a Charitable Organization” and a professor of practice at UMass-Amherst’s school of public policy.

Here’s what Betsy says about this session:

“In this increasingly politicized world, nonprofit leaders often realize that they can serve their clients best by advocating for policy changes. How do they do that and stay within the boundaries of the law? In this Roundtable, you’ll learn how to differentiate advocacy, lobbying, and political campaign intervention. You’ll learn what you can and cannot do in each of those situations, and you will leave, inspired to further your organization’s mission through advocacy and lobbying. We will also make sense of the pronouncements and possible changes in the Johnson Amendment—the part of Sec. 501(c)(3) that prevents nonprofits from engaging in political campaign activity.”

We do hope that you will join us on January 26th!

Please note that registration is free for employees of nonprofit organizations; however, you must have a confirmed registration in order to attend. It would break our hearts to turn you a way for lack of one, so please do register today.

If we are booked to capacity by the time that you go to register, please put yourself on the waiting list. We have a very good track record of finding seats for nonprofit professionals who are interested in participating.

TNB Roundtable: Study Hall – Create Your 2018 Nonprofit Storytelling Plan @ Boston NonProfit Center
Feb 15 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am

Tech Networks of Boston (TNB) exists to provide managed technology services to nonprofits and other mission-based organizations. It’s also our pleasure to offer you professional development opportunities that are both free of charge and free of sales pitches.

TNB is pleased to invite nonprofit professionals to a Roundtable session about creating a storytelling plan for your organization. Our featured guest will be Julia Campbell, the author of “Storytelling in the Digital Age: A Guide for Nonprofits.”

In this session, we will be experimenting with a new learning-by-doing format that we call “study hall.” Rather than focusing on a presentation, participants will be using specially designed templates to create storytelling plans for their nonprofit organizations. Julia will be actively providing assistance to all.

Here’s what Julia says about this session:

‘Raising awareness and filling the pipeline with new donors and engaged supporters is the ultimate goal of any nonprofit online marketing plan. In September, we walked through the process I use with my clients to create a 90-day online marketing plan for your nonprofit. In my experience, 90-day plans are preferable to annual plans or even one, two, and three year marketing plans, because they allow for improvement and evaluation in the digital world that is changing at a breath-taking pace.

‘However, some nonprofit online marketing efforts fail because they don’t use effective storytelling as to fuel the fire of their online marketing plan.

‘In this special, hands-on study hall session, nonprofit professionals will learn how to fill out and use the planning templates provided in the book “Storytelling in the Digital Age: A Guide for Nonprofits,” and receive coaching and encouragement during the session.’

We will fill out the following templates during this session:

o Story Collection Worksheet (addendum to the book)

o Social Media Content Calendar Template

o Storytelling Calendar Template

‘Nonprofit professionals will walk away with the tools they need to drive their own successful digital storytelling and marketing plans at their organizations.’

TNB Roundtable: Building the Best Nonprofit Website for the Cheapest Price @ Boston NonProfit Center
Feb 22 @ 10:30 am – 12:00 pm

Tech Networks of Boston is pleased to invite nonprofit professionals to a Roundtable session about web strategies for nonprofit organizations. Our featured guests will David Delmar and Muigai Unaka of Resilient Coders.

Here’s what David and Muigai say about this session:

“You know your organization needs a new website. You’re just not sure whether to use Square Space, WordPress, Wix, Google Sites, or whether to hire an agency, a freelancer, or your friend’s nephew. Some options are free, some cost dozens of dollars, and some cost tens of thousands of dollars. You’re unclear about the pros and cons of each option, and which path is right for your organization, at this particular point in your journey.

“Building a website is like buying a bicycle: Sure, there are options that are more souped-up than others, and that are priced accordingly. But the most important thing is that it be the right fit. Let’s determine the right fit for you, together.”

This super roundtable will give participants the essential vocabulary, practices and tools to more efficiently manage and deliver their projects.

“The concepts will be presented in a simple step-by-step manner and reinforced with interactive hands-on exercises reflecting real-life nonprofit projects. Participants will learn how to immediately apply tactical processes and tools to better plan, execute, and control their projects, and make their work less stressful. These tactics will fully engage all stakeholders, increase project productivity, and thereby increase organizational capacity.”

Building Values Based Human Resources Practices @ The Nonprofit Center
Jan 23 @ 9:00 am – 2:00 pm
Building Values Based Human Resources Practices @ The Nonprofit Center

Employees are an organization’s most important resource. Organizations that walk their talk, live their core values, and embed them in their everyday practices are more successful in attracting and retaining passionate and committed staff.

Perhaps the most powerful approach to bringing your values to life is to design and implement human resources policies, systems and practices that reflect and promote those values.

In this half-day workshop, you will spend time identifying and understanding which values are implicit, which are explicit and how the design of your current human resources systems helps to support or contradict those values. Participants will spend time developing a plan to improve this alignment within their organizations.
