To “geek out”:
To become enthralled by a subject that is considered by many to be geek-favorable. This includes comics, books, technology, etc. ~ Urban Dictionary
To temporarily enter techno-nerd mode while in a non-hackish context, or example at parties held near computer equipment. ~ The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing
I don’t know about you, but for us, a couple thousand nonprofit professionals passionate about creating change through technology gathering in one place for three days to learn, share knowledge and schmooze sounds like a seriously good time.
In one short month a few of us from VolunteerMatch will be heading to the 2013 Nonprofit Technology Conference (NTC), hosted by the Nonprofit Technology Network (NTEN). And how appropriate that this year’s event is being held in Minneapolis, Minn., which just happens to hold the distinction of the highest volunteering rate in the country – for the past two years straight.
At this year’s conference we’re looking forward to talking with folks just like you from all over the country to hear about technology needs, the challenges and triumphs of running a nonprofit in today’s multi-platform, multi-technical world, and how volunteers can make an impact both internally and externally when it comes to nonprofit technology.
We’ll also be speaking at a few sessions. Check them out below:
Will you be at the NTC this year? Let us know, and we’ll grab coffee!
Sometimes time and budget just don’t allow for these types of events – we get it, and so does NTEN. If you can’t make it to the NTC this year, you should definitely check out the Online NTC, a great way to follow along with all the action from the comfort of your office or home.
Either way, come geek out with us!
