We’re excited to announce important changes that we believe will allow you to get more out of the program.
We are still in the process of developing the 2018 schedule, but you can check out slides and resources from previous workshops in our Technology Knowledge Center at any time.
Starting in 2018, we’ll provide a mix of in-depth seminars and webinars that’ll cover topics every nonprofit and technology volunteer should know about.
- Seminars with 1 to 3 presenters will typically last 3 to 4 hours. This will allow you to go deeper into the subject matter and come away with greater perspective and broader knowledge.
- If you are unable to attend in-person, we’ll also periodically offer webinars, all of which will be recorded and made available to watch at your convenience.
We'll update this page as seminars or webinars are scheduled.
