Border-Busting: a conversation with Katrin Verclas.
July 17th, Radha Eatery

If you work at the intersection of technology and community-building, we hope you'll join us for a July 17th gathering of Social Tech Brewing's Vancouver chapter. Social Tech Brewing brings together folks from nonprofit organizations, community service, social activism, social ventures and technology to share ideas -- and beer!

Our July 17th event will feature a conversation with Katrin Verclas, the incoming director of The Nonprofit Technology Enterprise Network (N-TEN), an American group that works to support the diverse people and organizations who help nonprofits employ technology effectively. We've booked a great quiet space in which to have this conversation, conveniently located above a great spot to drink beer.

Katrin will lead an informal discussion about whether/how US npos can work more effectively here in Canada. She'll also introduce us to a new project from the N-TEN Technobabes Community: "BraCamp," which we're hoping will lead to a broader conversation about gender issues in nonprofit technology.

Katrin's presentation and Q&A will start at 7:15 and wrap by 8, so please plan to arrive on time. If you're early, folks will gather underneath Radha at the Brickhouse for a brew or two. And if you're still hot to talk after we wrap, we'll be moving back down to the Brickhouse again for another hour of libations, gossip exchange, and general consipracy-hatching.

Please RSVP and let us know you're coming. We hope to see you there!

This event sounds great, I would be excited to meet reps from NTEN. Any plans to repeat this in Toronto?
