TNB Roundtable: What Makes People Engage? What Makes People Give? @ Boston NonProfit Center
Jul 13 @ 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm
TNB Roundtable: What Makes People Engage? What Makes People Give? @ Boston NonProfit Center

Tech Networks of Boston (also known as “TNB”) is pleased to invite nonprofit professionals to a Roundtable session on July 13th, about new findings in what makes people engage, and in what makes them give. The featured guest for this session will be Lisa Williams of WBUR.

Here’s what Lisa says about this session:

“You know them, you hate them: those annoying on-air fund drives for your local National Public Radio station. But NPR stations face new challenges – as radio listenership declines and listeners migrate to online streaming and downloadable podcasts, our ‘annoy till you give’ strategy is running out of time. We have to learn how people engage and give in a digital context, and fast.

“I will take you through a project designed to give NPR fans great new NPR stuff -and really understand what makes people engage and give.”

Here’s a little more about Lisa:

Lisa Williams is the engagement director for Public Radio BizLab. They do R&D for the future of public media at WBUR, Boston’s NPR affiliate. Rearview: MIT Media Lab, Knight News Challenge, Boston Globe.

Please note:

1) In keeping with the spirit of the TNB Roundtable series, this session will NOT be a sales pitch for any product or service. This will be a professional development opportunity for nonprofit professionals who want to learn with and from their peers in other organizations.

2) This session is for employees of nonprofit organizations. It is not designed to meet the needs of vendors, volunteers, students, consultants, job-seekers, and others.

3) Priority in registration will be given to those who are employed by nonprofit organizations that hold full membership in the Massachusetts Nonprofit Network.

4) Participation in this session is free of charge for nonprofit professionals. However, you must have a confirmed reservation in order to attend.

5) If this session is booked to capacity by the time you seek to register for it, please go ahead and put yourself on the waiting list. We have a good track record of finding seats for nonprofit professionals on the waiting list.

We hope that you can join us for a vigorous and informative conversation, in which you will be welcome to share your knowledge and experience with your peers.
