The 2007 conference, Reinventing Politics: Creating Social Change From the Ground Up, will bring more than 1,000 people together for three days of connecting, learning, educating, and, so that we don't forget how much fun technology and changing the world are, playing. Collaborators, colleagues, and clients in the nonprofit and technology sectors will have the opportunity to share resources and learn about what works, what doesn't work, and what is in the works when it comes to using technology to help make the world a better place.
No matter what your role at your organization, there are a bevy of sessions that will help you do your job better and impress the boss! Over 70 sessions will be organized across six tracks:
* IT Staff
* Communications and Advocacy
* Non Profit Tech Consulting
* Program Delivery
The Day of Service is an opportunity for nonprofit techies to give something back to the community where the Nonprofit Technology Conference is held. Local nonprofits with a technology project that can be addressed in a single day are matched with teams of nonprofit techies who possess the appropriate skill sets. This year, we seek to match 30 groups with nearly 100 volunteers. Learn more about the Day of Service!
Talking about technology is fun, but sometimes you just have to get out and party. We're going to make that happen at the historic Union Station after the second day of events. Your admission will include two drink tickets, appetizers, live music, and a whole lot of fun. To learn more about the location, you can visit Union Station's official site. Purchse your tickets when you register for the conference, starting December 1.
Who should attend?
Just because the word "technology" is in the title doesn't mean the Nonprofit Technology Conference is just for geeks. The conference will address common issues faced by nonprofit leaders, program staff, development professionals, IT staff, Circuit Riders, and other technology support providers, and topics on the agenda will span a broad range of technology expertise. Anyone who is interested in how technology can be used to help nonprofit organizations go farther, faster, or be more user-friendly is welcome and encouraged to participate.
