Foothills United Way’s Nonprofit Cultivation Center will host Boulder’s 2014 Nonprofit Technology Summit on May 8th.
The full-day event is in its fourth year of bringing technology leaders together to support the strengthening of Boulder’s nonprofits. Summit-goers will learn best practices for streamlining within their organization, meet technology professionals who specialize in working with nonprofit organizations, and attend training on technology topics that build off of existing skills.
Nonprofit Cultivation encourages participation from multiple people within the organization. Because business is a collaboration, Kristin Imo, Program Manager of Nonprofit Cultivation Center explains, it’s beneficial for employees from several disciplines to learn about new and best technology practices for growing and sustain nonprofits. “They come together, leave together, and implement what they learn together,” says Imo.
She’s particularly excited about Summit guest, Tim Sullivan of SolveIT. With Boulder County still in the wake of September’s floods, Sullivan will teach organizations how to keep data and move forward when disaster strikes and how to protect data as a precaution.
Another notable presenter, Dana Romanoff, will speak to the power of video and visual storytelling for nonprofits and note common pitfalls within nonprofit video making.
Imo also notes Robb Neumann of Teaming for Technology Colorado who will run a Summit session on using the Photoshop alternative, GIMP, to enhance photos. The free program offers many of the same tools as it’s pricey counterpart and can be an indispensable part of any nonprofit’s media arsenal.
