Good news! It's that time of year again when the Nonprofit Technology Conference (NTC) puts out their call for workshop proposals. The Conference will be in Washington D.C. next March 23-25, 2017, and we think you should submit!
Deadline: Proposals will be accepted May 25, 2016 – July 1, 2016.
You don't have to be the number one expert in your field to submit a workshop proposal, but if you've got good ideas, nonprofit experience, and thoughtful insight, you should submit.
What Should You Submit?
If you have no idea what kind of workshop to submit, we've got some suggestions for you to get your wheels turning. This list is based on feedback from the community, participation at training events from the past year, and direct feedback from the 17NTC Steering Committee.
- Accessibility: Website, Social Media, Devices
- Process & Team Structures: Product Mangers, Agile, Digital First
- Imagery: Permissions, Appropriate Representation, Asset Management
- Leadership: Inclusion, Diversity, Accountability
- Measurement: Data, Metrics & Goals
- Content: Strategy, Creation, Management, Repurposing
- Fundraising: Digital Campaigns, Muti-Channel Strategies
- Funding for Technology and Digital Communications
Remember: these are only suggestions, and the sky's the limit. Your workshop ideas do not have to fit within these parameters or topics. There will be 100+ sessions in the final program, so don't be shy.
Who Should Submit a Proposal?
Submissions are open to the public, regardless of Membership status or previous roles within the NTEN Community. We'd highly encourage people and organizations who have not presented at NTC before, and who are from underrepresented communities and perspectives to craft and submit a proposal.
