NTEN has done so much to shape my career and my impact on the world. When I first joined NTEN, I had no idea the community and education I would receive – and my entire team has advanced their use of technology through our membership. I highly recommend NTEN's annual Nonprofit Technology Conference. Their Nonprofit Technology Academy is also a must for any staff who are responsible for technology. I look forward to growing my involvement with NTEN in all the ways that I can.
I became a volunteer for NTEN a few years ago. I was searching online for information about constituent data management systems for two nonprofits with which I was working. I discovered an eye-opening vendor satisfaction report on the NTEN website, and there my adventure began. The report helped make my work much easier, it definitely helped my nonprofits, and soon thereafter I became an NTEN member.
Eventually, I was invited to speak at the 2010 Nonprofit Technology Conference in Atlanta, which I enjoyed greatly. I have served on two committees, the NTC Organizing Committee (fundraising track), and the Membership Committee. In 2011, I was honored to receive an NTENy award for my membership recruitment efforts.
The way society communicates and works has changed greatly, and it continues to evolve. NTEN has helped me lose my fear of new technological developments, and to embrace them heartily. The staff is always friendly and helpful.
My volunteer work for NTEN is one of the most enjoyable things I do. My blog is a direct result of my work with NTEN, in fact: http://carolynmappleton.wordpress.com/. If you are not already an NTEN member, I urge you to join!
