Back from the NTC, Inspired!

Returning from the NTC Conference is well, never easy!  After an action packed three days of mind-bending workshops, a Science Fair jammed with vendors that care about the mission, one-off discussions with amazing people, navigating our nation’s capitol and all the wonderful museums and exhibits in the spare few minutes NTEN gives you to not think about technology, coming back and having to concentrate on sharing what we’ve learned is hard, because … there’s so much great stuff that should immediately be shared with the masses so everyone can begin implementing and reaping the benefits of grasping technology and all it has to offer by the horns and making it work for you!

As I said earlier, the NTC is action-packed!  NTEN staff, all nine of them, pull off unparalleled scheduling feats year after year, fitting in tons of workshops – even sunrise sessions (which, for those that know me best, it has to be good to get me out of bed and functioning before 9am, let alone 7am), networking time, community service opportunities, ice cream breaks, nighttime social events, an Unconference, and lest we not forget the Science Fair…which Lesley cleaned up on the swag!

The NTC was inspiring as usual, and the Dogs at Brown Dog Creative are excited to be able to continue sharing (hopefully everyone caught Lesley’s tweets) all the great things we learned for our nonprofit clients, as well as those things that can be shared across sectors making the world of web a better place!

NTC 2011 here we come!

Me, at NTC '07, inhaling caffeine and probably checking in

Brown Dog Creative cannot WAIT to attend NTEN’s Nonprofit Technology Conference, March 17 – 19, in Washington, DC and connect and learn with others also helping the nonprofits in their communities harness the power of technology!

We feel especially close to the nonprofit community of Northeast Florida; we love our nonprofit clients, volunteer for those causes close to our heart, and always are thinking about how we can make their lives easier with the technology available!

So, even though I have gone to the NTC faithfully since 2007, I will be initiating a new attendee, Lesley. First stop, Science Fair… and before you start snickering, the Science Fair is how we keep on top of all the great tools out there, many of which are Open Source and free! OK, next stop, Ignite Session, also known as “injecting the NTC into your veins.” Are you having fun yet, thinking you need to attend, or at least figure out what this is all about?

As an NTEN member, we’d be happy to encourage you to attend the NTC! If you are a nonprofit, the NTC is probably one of the most jam-packed, invaluable information, and networking conferences you could possibly attend! We all know, there are some conferences that you can duck out at 2 o’clock in the afternoon and never look back, the NTC has you riveted and stimulated (through information, networking, caffeine, or yes, even ice cream) from 7am – 7pm, and maybe beyond, once you meet up with old or new friends!

If you, like us, implement technology solutions for nonprofit clients, the NTC isn’t a conference to miss, and we are certainly looking forward to the wide dissemination of information, networking with others bringing solutions to the nonprofit community, and let’s not forget the ice cream!
