Hi there, goodnik;
As we close out 2012, I wanted to reach out and thank you for your support and participation in the last year. We've done quite a bit to expand Goodnik and we've had some great success, none of which would have been possible without you.
In the next year, we're going to get even bigger and better. We're already planning our calendar of events, and the topics for the first quarter next year have already been posted on our meetup page. Here are some of the events happening in the next few months;
We're really looking forward to having you attend this event. In particular, our kickoff event for the new year will be the "New Year, New Tech" event and we're looking for people with new technology that they'd like to present. This could be a product or service that is designed for nonprofits or social entrepreneurs, or it could be a nonprofit or social enterprise with an exciting product that they've just launched. It doesn't need to be completely new either - if you're product has undergone significant changes recently, you can present that too. Also, if you've got something that is pre-launch that you want feedback on, this is a great place for that. Send any questions/suggestions to [address removed].
If you have other topics you'd like to see or ideas for other events, please let me know. If you'd like to present at any of the events we have planned, drop me a note and I'll see if I can fit you in.
On another note; those of you who are members of NYTM should know that there is currently an election underway to add a board member. Two members of Goodnik are running and they could use your support. Tony Baccigalupo is the founder of New Work City, which has been a great host for our events and he's done a lot for the social good community. Jennifer Shaw is the founder of NYTechWomen and has had a tremendous impact in fostering women in the tech world and she has been very supportive of Goodnik.
I can't say enough good things about these people, and while I won't officially endorse one or the other, I will say that it's a tough choice. If you can vote (if you're a member of NYTM) please do so at http://vote.nytm.org/polls/4
Best wishes for the holidays and in the new year.
