Wow, do I have a story for you! That’s how it all starts - with a story. Whether it’s about your latest success, a new employee, a grant received, a project begun, or any other newsworthy message from your organization that you want and need to share. We tell those things in a story. In the past we shared the story through the use of print media, advertising, networking get-togethers, and just telling friends and associates. Things have changed and are continuing to change. 

So, how do we use the new tools available to spread our stories? That’s what this month’s NFN4Good/501Tech meeting is about. Digital Storytelling - the what, why, and how. Join us at our new meeting location.

We invite all local nonprofit organizations to network, learn, test and explore new technologies, exchange ideas,and best practices.  #nptech #nfn4g #501swfl #net2

Dinner and soft drinks for every one.

    I was at Scott Robertson's free auction seminar this morning with about 40 other non-profit reps. I mentioned our group, and quite a few folks were interested. So, we may see some new faces at our meeting next week. Scott is repeating his seminar on Oct. 14. Hope it's OK to mention him here. (
