Community IT March 2017 News: Welcome March!
I’m excited to announce that Community IT Innovators is a supporting sponsor and the official 17NTC App sponsor of the NTEN 2017 Nonprofit Technology Conference (17NTC). This year’s conference will be in Washington DC from March 23-25. 
NTC is one of the most diverse and welcoming conferences I’ve ever attended. You will feel at home whether you are just starting in your career, have experience managing technology at nonprofits, work in technology and have just discovered nonprofits, or have been providing services and products for years. Participating in NTC can give you invaluable connections to your peers and colleagues, and access to best practices and upcoming trends.
Many of us from Community IT Innovators will be attending, and you can get in touch @CommunityIT while at the conference. I look forward to meeting many of you!
Information Management Webinar:
Thank you to everyone who attended our February webinar with our partners at Build Consulting. We had a lively discussion of information management with some great audience questions and will definitely follow up with more half hour webinars – we know it can be hard to find time to commit to an hour long presentation.
If you missed it, you can catch the slides and recording from February or binge-watch all our past webinars on our website here at your convenience. We won’t judge.
Next Webinar: Security Readiness
On Wednesday (new day!) March 15th from 4-5:00pm EST we will present on security readiness for nonprofits. In this age of insecurity it seems there are new stories daily on large data breaches, embarrassing hacks, and financial threats to organizations large and small. Many organizations are also asking questions about safety and privacy for activists and organizers.
This webinar is appropriate for nonprofit executives, managers and nonprofit IT personnel. We welcome and encourage audience participation and love the chance to address practical and timely nonprofit technology situations in our monthly webinars.

If you missed our series on planning and migrating to the cloud for infrastructure or file sharing you can find the downloadable white paper in .pdf or online format here. If you are considering a move to the cloud or are having some implementation pains please get in touch, as we can probably help.
For more information on Information Management best practices I can recommend these resources from our colleagues at Build Consulting. They have put together a thoughtful framework for considering your approach to organizing what you know. They are also presenting a blog series on nonprofit online community building software that is worth a look if you are wondering how online communities function and what the pitfalls can be.
Please let me know if you have questions or ideas for future webinar topics you’d like covered, and follow me on LinkedIn or FaceBook for all my latest posts and news.
