Focus Your Vision
Join Community IT Innovators' experts Steve Longenecker, our Director of IT, and Johan Hammerstrom, our President and CEO, for an in depth discussion on getting the right level of IT service for your nonprofit from an IT Managed Services Provider (MSP) in a free webinar from 3-4pm on Wednesday March 18th, 2020.
"Managed services" can mean different things to different people, especially when you are just embarking on a quest to find a provider. To understand what you need, what a provider is offering – and whether they'll be able to deliver – Community IT Innovators developed a list of basic questions to ask.
In our 25 years in serving the nonprofit IT community, we've heard lots of stories of IT support that didn't work out. We used our experience to develop this list of 12 questions you can use to vet any managed service provider as you evaluate your needs and their services.Don't miss this chance to learn how your organization can vet and compare IT providers, whether you have 5 employees or 500. For example, you *might* need to know how well they can support working from home! Community IT is planning several upcoming webinars on supporting remote workers!There will be a 15 minute Q&A following the webinar, so bring your questions or ask them at registration. As with all our webinars, this presentation is appropriate for an audience of varied IT experience.
Dominique Hernandez & I decided to host our planned 20NTC session online (FREE). More info & RSVP at http://tuttle.link/52tweaks
In this session, we'll show you 52 easy-to-implement tweaks you can make over the course of one year that will leave you with a better, more engaging website.

Join "52 Tweaks in 52 Weeks to a Better Nonprofit Website" on Wednesday, March 25 @ 1:30 pm. We hope to see you there!
---------Most of us are suddenly working remotely. Some people take remote for granted, others are starting from scratch. Others aren't even sure how it applies to their work. All of us are struggling to work in a rapidly changing environment.
NOTE: We'll use the acronym WFH as shorthand for Work From Home or Remote Work. For most people and organizations, the immediate challenge is both. Remote Work in general and Work From Home in particular.
A lot of assumptions go into the idea of work from home (WFH):
These assumptions are being put to the test. For most, it's not going smoothly.
RoundTable Technology has been a remote only workforce since its inception a decade ago. We have a LOT of experience with WFH culture, technology, tools, virtual meetings, webinars, online training and everything that goes along with these.
Starting this Wednesday at 2PM, we're hosting "Suddenly Remote". This will be a series of webinars to help people and organizations who are struggling to adjust to WFH.
Each week we'll start with 20-30 minutes of content, then have open conversations to get ideas and questions from our attendees to help EVERYONE as best we can adjust to WFH in these incredibly challenging times.Register Here
Join us. NOTE: Topics subject to change based on feedback.

Stop Redesigning Your Organization's Website - Start Evolving It!
It used to be best practice to fully redesign a website every few years, if only to keep up with rapidly evolving technology. But major redesigns can be extremely costly in many ways: besides typically requiring lots of money, they can also suck up a huge amount of staff time, affect SEO, and alienate users already familiar with your site (Imagine the uproar if you woke up tomorrow and Facebook was completely redesigned!). The smarter way to approach modern website maintenance is to budget for gradual, ongoing changes - ideally informed by A/B testing. In this session we'll talk about the ins and outs of making this philosophical shift to "evolution, not revolution," from budgeting, to tools, to vendor relationships, to assessing whether your current site is amenable to this sort of user-friendly, data-informed incrementalism.
Date: March 31, 2020
Time: 3:00 PM ET
We'll also be recording both webinars, so if you're not able to attend, just send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll send you a link as soon as the video is posted online!
Have you seen other organizations have really successful online giving events and wondered what their secret is?
Now's your chance to ask.
Earlier this month, #DoMore24Delaware raised nearly $400,000 in just 24 hours for Delaware nonprofits. This Thursday, we are hosting a free online panel discussion to talk about what it takes to be effective in an online fundraising event.
Join us to hear Tyler Shade from Family Promise of Northern New Castle County and Jessica Ball and Samantha Tan from Delaware Arts Alliance discuss how they created very different versions of successful days.
