In today’s world, volunteer engagement and technology go hand in hand. In our recently-published book Volunteer Engagement 2.0: Ideas and Insights Changing the World, we dedicated an entire section to technology shifts and their impact on the volunteer engagement space.
So wouldn’t it be great to see volunteer engagement heavily represented at the conference for leveraging technology for social good?
Yes, I’m talking about NTEN’s Nonprofit Technology Conference (16NTC), coming up this March in San Jose, CA. This conference puts its content in the hands of its community, by allowing upvoting and downvoting on session proposals before the agenda is finalized.
But here’s the thing. Voting ends on July 31st. If you haven’t already had your say, make sure to cast your votes now. Help us get volunteerism into the conversation. There’s are least 7 proposals all about volunteerism, including Leveraging Expert or Technical Volunteers, Convert Volunteers into Donors (& Vice Versa) and Here, There, and Everywhere: Distance Volunteer Training.
Remember, you don’t have to go to 16NTC to help shape the nonprofit technology conversation. Cast your votes today.
P.S. We also proposed a session on how we took full advantage of our Google AdWords Grant and were able to increase traffic to our site, decrease bounce rates, and increase conversions. Help us out by giving us an upvote on that session, too.
