Nonprofit Technology Trends Roundtable 2021

Join four Community IT Innovators executive experts for an “ask the experts” discussion. Hear about nonprofit technology trends we expect to deliver new impact this year.

Community IT Innovators’ CTO and cybersecurity expert Matt Eshleman covers emerging threats and the security measures to counter them, and discusses how to determine the real risks to your organization and the return on your nonprofit’s investment in security. He will also touch on cybersecurity training for your staff, and emerging security concerns for online collaboration and remote workers. Does your organization need a cybersecurity assessment or cybersecurity insurance? Find out!

Community IT has worked with several clients this past year on implementation of nonprofit tech projects that impacted the entire organization, and required really engaged change management from leadership. Our Chief Operating Officer, Johanny Torrico, will discuss our work with implementation of large multi-stakeholder tech projects, and the tools available to assist in successful tech transitions. Do you have a major tech project coming up?

Cloud computing trends and platforms such as Office365 for nonprofits, Microsoft Teams, and SharePoint will continue to be important in 2021. Our clients are using cloud-based tech to transform their productivity, remote work, and file sharing while lowering costs. Director of IT Consulting Steve Longenecker presents insights from his experience with cloud computing implementations and trouble-shooting. Remote work specifically has put new pressure on cloud solutions to deliver for productivity – is your team utilizing the tools that you have? Do you need to learn about new tools?

We will also address up and coming technologies to watch, innovations to embrace, and technology management basics for any nonprofit operating in 2021.

CEO Johan Hammerstrom will moderate the discussion and draw on his decades of experience in nonprofit technology work.

We know our nonprofit colleagues are going to be asked to go above and beyond for the foreseeable future as we grapple with enormous changes and upheaval. Join us for this webinar on using technology to put your organization in a good place to deliver on your mission.

As with all our webinars, this presentation is appropriate for an audience of varied IT and security experience.
