Meetups for Tech Clubs | NetSquared ReadyTalk Webinar

  1. 1. Meetups for Tech Clubs Carolyn M. Appleton #NPTechClubATX | February 7, 2017
  2. 2. What is a Meetup? “Meetup helps people do more of what they love by finding and creating communities based around the ideas and activities that matter to them. Meetups are formed around a common interest, goal, or cause, and they are made up of regular, face-to-face gatherings.”
  3. 3. NetSquared
  4. 4. “NetSquared gathers together nonprofits and activists, tech leaders and funders, and everyone who's interested in using technology for social change. Our volunteer leaders host free in-person events every month in 60 cities. Nonprofit staffers will find a friendly, welcoming atmosphere for those who aren't experienced with technology, and many chances to ask questions of tech-experienced nonprofits and experts.”
  5. 5. “NTEN’s Nonprofit Tech Clubs are informal, volunteer-run groups of nonprofit professionals passionate about using technology to fulfill their missions. Local Nonprofit Tech Club events offer an opportunity for professionals at all levels to learn about the latest tools and trends while meeting new people in a welcoming environment. All Tech Club events are free to attend.”
