In order to take engage the Austin community on a new level, technology and non-profit experts are gathering November 14th to engage the Austin community and promote ideas and ideals to support the local non-profit community.
Austin Non Profit Camp is a free, facilitated and participant driven conference that will be the place in Austin for non profits to learn and troubleshoot their technology problems in a supportive, collaborative setting.
Austin Non Profit Camp is being spearheaded by David J. Neff, Jon Lebkowsky, Maggie Duval and Matt Glazer. Their goal is to take the successful Bar Camp model (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BarCamp) and apply it to expand understanding and awareness of free and Open Source technology within the non-profit community in Central Texas.
How It Works
Non profits and technology folks come together to have conversations about the issues that they face in a no sales, no cost environment. We bring tech experts together with nonprofits in a context that will facilitate mutual understanding.
In addition to scheduled speakers, attendees will have the option to sign up to speak about issues and solutions they know best.
Nonprofit attendees collaboratively problem solve issues they face with running and promoting their organizations, workshopping with local technologists about the latest and most effective technologies and methodologies. These conversations will help nonprofits filter what’s useful from what’s not and keep their organizations humming and on track.
Google Apps, Data Exchange/Salesforce, Google Grants, Social Media, Marketing, Cloud Computing, Email Marketing, Fundraising in Social Media, ZERO COST Infrastructure, ROI of The Cloud.
