Madison, Wisconsin Web Design & Development Meetup Message Board › Madison Non-Profit Day - Presentation Opportunity
This message board is read-only.
A quick note: I will not be present at this Thursday's meetup, however, you are in C2's competent hands, and I will see you at the April meetup.
Thanks as always to C2 GPS, our regular meetup host.
I am forwarding this message from Alnisa Algood, Principal at Non-Profit Tech and organizer of Madison Non-Profit day. They are looking for presenters--if you have ideas, get in touch.
Presenters will primarily be focused on nonprofit education. These are workshops that will help nonprofit volunteers and professionals gain skills and or insight that can be used in their work. Community education workshops are also allowed but are best served as panel discussions that can serve different opinions while engaging participants.
Hosting an Activity means you would hold one of the many events that make Madison Nonprofit Day unique— from the Tree Climbing Demonstration to Senior Luncheons to Hackathons. These activities offer a way for you and your nonprofit to create engagement opportunities with the community and even other nonprofits.
You can submit your idea for a workshop or activity online at: http://www.nonprofit-... or send an email to email@example.com (please include 'present' or 'host' in subject).
This year, we will have at least two locations for educational efforts. Sector67, a collaborative space (aka Hacker/MakerSpace) that opened in the Atwood-Schenk neighborhood has agreed to allow us to use the space. This will allow us to provide a much more in-depth Technology Track for the day. The track can include basic and intermediate workshops on information, technology, and social media related topics, as well as the possibility of some website challenge or GoodStock like project. The space is within 10min walking distance from Goodman Community Center which will allow those who just want to attend an individual workshop to go back and forth between locations.
This also means we can now offer more leadership, development and other workshops at the Goodman Center.
There have also been a number of ideas around larger, multi-group activities, such as Art in the Park or Neighborhood Nonprofit Tours, see the voting pattern here: http://nonprofitday.posterous.com/five-ideas-vote-by-1-april-2011 (submit your own votes, as well). Feel free to read/skim the blog http://nonprofitday.posterous.com/ around other ideas that have been submitted but not collected for a vote yet.
