Free Ask the Experts Panel Webinar

Wednesday, January 19, 2022 at 3pm Eastern

Join four Community IT Innovators executives for an “ask the experts” discussion and Q&A. Hear about nonprofit technology trends we expect to deliver new impact this year. Bring your questions and ask us in real time! This is always one of our most popular webinars as we take a deep dive into nonprofit tech.

We know our nonprofit community has been going full speed, above and beyond, over the past 2 years. In the midst of enormous changes and upheaval, we hope this webinar on using technology to deliver for your constituents will put your organization in a good place to grow and thrive.

CEO Johan Hammerstrom moderates the discussion, drawing on his decades of experience in nonprofit technology work.

As our offices have moved to all-remote, all-in-person, or a hybrid, Community IT has seen nonprofits implement nonprofit tech projects that impacted their entire organization. Our Chief Operating Officer, Johanny Torrico, discusses our work with implementation of large multi-stakeholder tech projects, and the change management tools and principles needed to assist in successful tech transitions. Do you have a major tech project coming up? Are you in the middle of one now?

Our clients are moving to cloud-based tech, following the market as their on-premises solutions age. Cloud computing is transforming offices, from supporting productivity and remote work, to providing stability and lowering costs. Director of IT Consulting Steve Longenecker will discuss his experience with cloud computing platforms. Remote work specifically has put new pressure on cloud solutions to deliver – is your team utilizing all the tools that you have? Do you have all the tools that you need?

Cybersecurity has only grown in importance for nonprofits as hacks and ransomware have made the news. Attend this webinar and ask Community IT Innovators’ CTO and cybersecurity expert Matt Eshleman your questions on emerging threats, prevention, and staff cybersecurity training. Does your organization need a cybersecurity assessment or cybersecurity insurance? Have you taken our free self-quiz to see where you stand in cybersecurity readiness?

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

This webinar is Wednesday, January 19, 2022 at 3pm Eastern.

Community IT is proudly vendor-agnostic and our webinars cover a range of topics and discussions. Webinars are never a sales pitch, always a way to share our knowledge with our community.
