Did you miss the Nonprofit Technology Conference in San Jose? If so, not to worry we have a recap. The week was filled with insightful content and networking opportunities. NTEN’s Nonprofit Technology Conference was a great platform for innovation and new technology ideas in the nonprofit sector.
We were busy teaching organizations how VolunteerHub optimizes volunteer management efforts with our CRM integrations. It was exciting to share our capabilities with other organizations and look forward to working with them in the future.
The conference proved to be enlightening and educational for those who attended. Following are just a few of our favorite breakout sessions.
- The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly: An Unfiltered Conversation about Culture, Leadership, and Change
Change is the only thing that is truly constant. Being able to adapt to change while inspiring others can catapult your organization’s growth and vision. We learned how to cultivate change when needed, when it is appropriate to demand change, and how to lead from any position.
- Fantastic Volunteers and Where to Find Them
If you had to choose your perfect volunteer who would that be? This session taught us how to create a volunteer recruitment strategy and recognize the ideal volunteer for different opportunities within your organization. By creating a strategy for volunteer management you are able to strengthen your partnerships.
- Here, There, and Everywhere: Distance Volunteer Training
This session taught us how to identify different types of training methods and how to use them to your advantage. Also we learned what the pros and cons of each method could be and how we can apply this to our individual organizations. The presenters shared innovative tools to use in establishing an effective training program.
- Diversity in Giving: Examining the Changing Landscape of Philanthropy
We discovered the results from Blackbaud’s first-ever Diversity in Giving study, an in-depth analysis of donor habits and the main concern for individuals a part of diverse communities. The study inspired the audience to apply the findings to their organization and fundraising approach.
VolunteerHub was honored with the opportunity to speak as well. We discussed how to convert donors to volunteers (and vice versa). We were excited to share our research and experience with the audience. What a great way to end the conference. Thank you to everyone who attended.
