November NTEN Meetup Crowdsourcing: Using technology to build a network

For our November NTEN Tech Club meetup, the Ontario Nonprofit Network (ONN) will be joining to chat with tech club members about their technology challenges.

The ONN is the convening network for the 46,000+ nonprofit organizations across Ontario. ONN leads, engages and advocates with the nonprofit sector -- its organizations, communities and people -- to support a vibrant, resilient Ontario.

ONN activates a pan-provincial network to develop and analyze policy, and work on strategic issues through:

• Constellations: Working groups of volunteer leaders developing strategies to strengthen the sector and its sustainability.

• Sector Engagement: Communication platforms to share info, an Ontario and sector-wide conference, regional meetings for local mobilization, webinars and resource-sharing. 

• Government Relations: Engaging with multiple ministries to bring sector voices to policy development and decision-making spaces 

With the help of NTEN, ONN hopes to gain insight on online platforms for the network to connect to each other, an online tool for working groups to share project updates, and information on volunteer-tracking systems.

Also at this week's meetup, we'll be celebrating NTEN's member appreciation month! The first 20 people at arrive for the meetup will receive some swag generously provided by NTEN.

Agenda:

• 6-6:15 - Introductions and welcome

• 6:15-6:30 - ONN intro presentation 

• 6:30 - 7:30 - Crowdsourced solution discussion, led by Peter Deitz of GrantBook 

Light refreshments will be provided. 

Hope to see you there!

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
