Everything You Wanted To Know About Being A Net2Chi Organizer

Post #: 23
Are you passionate about promoting the use of technology for good? Then please join me as a
co-organizer at Net2Chi, the Chicago branch of Netsquared Local.


NetSquared Local groups offer a space for anyone interested in technology and social impact to connect. They provide members an opportunity to convene locally to share ideas, learn from one another, and collaborate on projects for real world impact. In Chicago, we have a particular focus on digital excellence and digital literacy.

Local organizers are volunteers who are passionate about promoting the use of technology for good. They are highly diverse in age, background, experience and knowledge.


NetSquared Local organizers are passionate community-minded volunteers who believe that change is accelerated when social benefit organizations leverage the tools of technology and the social web. They understand the power of bringing people together face-to-face and are especially interested in connecting social benefit and technology innovators.

If that sounds like you, we would love to have you as a Net2Chi organizer.
