NIU’s Center for Non-Governmental Organization Leadership and Development (NGOLD) will present a Non-Profit Technology Conference from 1 to 4:30 p.m. Friday, May 3, in the Holmes Student Center.
There is no cost for nonprofit workers and volunteers, although registration is required: e-mail NIUnonprofitTechCon@gmail.com.
NIU students from Schatteman’s “Community Organizations in a Digital World” class are researching and preparing presentations geared toward developing nonprofit organizations’ use of technology to promote their success.
Intended audiences range from brand new nonprofits to well established organizations. Panel presentations will include topics related to incorporating technology into all facets of an organization’s success, such as branding, volunteer recruitment, website search-ability, transparency, mobile communications, reaching special populations and fundraising.
NGOLD is an interdisciplinary center that serves undergraduates, graduate students and nonprofit leaders. The center offers an undergraduate major in Community Leadership and Civic Engagement (CLCE) that prepares students for challenging and rewarding careers in the nonprofit sector.
