2011 Nonprofit Technology Conference

NTEN

We attended the 2011 Nonprofit 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. This year 2,000+ people attended, making for the largest NTC ever. There was a of diverse group of presenters and attendees, including Dan Health Exit Disclaimer, co-author of Switch: How to Change Things When Change is Hard Exit Disclaimer, who gave a plenary talk on organizational change and Moira Gunn Exit Disclaimer, host of the weekly NPR show, Tech Nation Exit Disclaimer, who conducted a live interview with Congresswoman Donna Edwards on Net Neutrality.

We hosted a panel discussion on “Facing AIDS via Twitter, Widgets, Mobile, and More: Government Strategies for Online EngagementExit Disclaimer where we discussed some of the tools and strategies that AIDS.gov uses to reach to diverse audiences, including our Facing AIDS online photo sharing and mobile initiatives.

We also talked with a few attendees including Eric Diaz Exit Disclaimer, who works on the CDC en Español website and participated in the “Engaging Latinos OnlineExit Disclaimer session, and Alex Bernardin, Digital Content Manager at the San Francisco AIDS Foundation Exit Disclaimer about how they are using new media to reach, serve, and collaborate with their audiences.

There were a number of health organizations represented at the conference this year, and we look forward to seeing this presence grow. Keep an eye out for a specific focus on health at future conferences as we saw at SXSWi Exit Disclaimer, which one of our colleagues wrote about here.
