Hello Mary Beth,My name is Rebecca Fowler from ShopRaise and this is our first time at NTC. I have a quick question. I noticed you mentioned collect buttons, do vendors giveaway buttons or are you referring to something else? We are considering giving away computer stickers but then I saw your comment about buttons and want to give away something more relevant.
Thank you for your time.
Hello everyone, I'm new to NTEN and really excited to be attending my first NTC! What field or sub-sector are you in, or want to be in? My organization works at the intersection of youth development and participatory grantmaking, by creating opportunities for high school students to decide where funding support should go in their own communities. My work helps our tiny team of four monitor and report on a national-scale program, and it's exactly where I want to be.Recent win: In November, I launched an overhauled version of our website that includes embedded, interactive dashboards. It was the first time we'd been able to show our community members the impact of the program at both the national and the local level simultaneously (and through building this, we now have processes and templates that make reporting to funders a much simpler process for our development staff). Something you can offer or something you need: Pretty okay at working with data visualizations, especially Google Data Studio, if you're interested in trying out some dashboarding of your own. What we're looking at on the horizon though is integrating our data collection processes with our CRM, to automate the flow of program outcome data, so if you've got experience connecting forms/surveys, spreadsheets and Salesforce then I would greatly value getting to talk to you at the conference. Also looking to learn more about Wordpress as we upgrade the new website further to make it bilingual. So basically, excited to learn all the things.
