The Voices of Non-Profits: AIDS.gov at the National Technology Conference

We attended the 2010 National Technology Conference Exit Disclaimer (NTC) sponsored by the Nonprofit Technology Network Exit Disclaimer (NTEN) last week, along with hundreds of nonprofit organizations from across the country. We heard from a diverse group of presenters and attendees, ranging from Andrew Sullivan’s Exit Disclaimer keynote presentation about blogging for the Atlantic, to Impact Games’ Exit Disclaimer Asi Burak’s talk about the potential of gaming, to Beth Kanter‘s sage advice. We also listened to several of the 1400+ attendees that are using or exploring new media strategies to reach, serve, and collaborate with their audiences.

There was so much to learn and share from NTEN, we decided to use video to let some of the presenters and attendees talk with you in their own words (stay tuned for a blog post about how we created these videos!).

  1. We (Data Systems International/ClientTrack) were fortunate to sponsor NTC this year, and found it to be an invaluable opportunity to meet with like-minded individuals invested in making a difference in the world. This was our first year to attend, and I hope it will become a standing tradition for us. I echo the invitation to others to try to make it out to next year’s conference. The conference and the presented technologies are fabulous, but the real value is in the people and experience that are present in one venue.

    First, I thank AIDS.gov for allowing me the opportunity to speak on new media. I also want to commend them on being progressive about using social media as a method for getting the message out to all audiences. It was great seeing them at the NTEN Technology Conference and being engaged with the community. And even better they are using the community to help speak for them as well. Great videos from all who participated. Keep up the good work.
