At Cloud for Good, we believe that technology in the nonprofit sector is incredibly important and, in many cases, can transform the way an organization conducts business. Having the right mix of technology can mean more effective program management, more impactful engagement and building trust with your constituents. One organization that shares these values is NTEN. NTEN is a community of over 50,000 nonprofit professionals, that encourages their members to learn about the way technology can help them meet their mission.   

For the past seven years, NTEN has brought like-minded organizations together to learn, collaborate, innovate and discover with their peers and leaders in the space – AND they are already planning for the Nonprofit Technology Conference in 2020!

Here are the Top 5 Reasons You Should Attend this year’s Nonprofit Technology Conference 

1. Learn from Your Peers 

Every nonprofit operates a little bit differently than the next, however, they all have the same goal, to make the world a better place. Learn how your peers are using technology to enhance their missions, serve larger populations, expand their programming and get the most out of their data. You’ll learn how others collaborate, innovate and discover new ways to move their missions forward with the power of technology. 

2. Network, Network, Network 

What an incredible opportunity you will have at this conference to connect with over 2,000 nonprofit professionals from all around the world! Whether it be during one of the over 100 sessions or at the nightly networking events, you’ll have the opportunity to make lasting relationships with industry leaders that could vastly impact your organization for the better. Be sure to take a good look at the schedule before you arrive in Baltimore to ensure you won’t miss a must-attend event. 

3. You Get a Say in the Content 

This year, NTEN is asking YOU to vote on the session proposals you want to see. Are you incredibly interested in how blockchain can build trust within your community? Or maybe you want to learn more about cybersecurity – don’t worry! There’s a session for that.  

All you have to do is head to the proposal section of the conference website and favorite the sessions you want to see. Favoriting ends on August 30, so make sure you carve out some time this week or next to take a look at the 609 proposed sessions.  

Cloud for Good’s Founder and CEO, Tal Frankfurt, has two submissions you should check out and favorite! What’s especially cool about these proposals is they make technology that feels lightyears ahead of our time achievable.  

A Beginners Guide to Blockchain

Connectivity is redefining how organizations operate and the experiences that we all expect. To deliver this, organizations need to share massive amounts of data without sacrificing trust. Learn how Blockchain solves the “trust gap” while also allows organizations to innovate with new business models.

The Future is Now: Machine Learning + Chatbots for Nonprofits

Over the past few years, the rise of artificial intelligence (AI) has constituents, much like consumers, expecting instant personalized engagement with their favorite nonprofits. Organizations on the leading edge of customer experience and technology are enlisting the help of AI features, such as machine learning and chatbots, to deliver personalized, actionable and human-like engagement directly to their constituents.

4. Get Ignited!  

Another fun part of the NTC is their ignite sessions. These are fast-paced (five minutes or less) presentations where community members share their passion around a certain theme. You are sure to leave the sessions feeling inspired as the 2020 theme asks, “How have you used technology or the internet to make change in your organization, the community, or the world?” 

5. Discover Technology Experts at the Exhibit Hall 

Like many other conferences, NTC opens an exhibit hall packed to the brim with technology leaders in the space. Just taking a walk across the floor, you’ll discover new organizations that are dedicated to helping your organization achieve more with technology. You may find a new and exciting technology that will help your organization do more good. Plus, you’ll be sure to score some good swag along the way.  

What are you waiting for? Register today and vote for your favorite sessions before August 30th.
