Non-profits that use technology effectively can:
- Maximise the time that staff dedicate to clients rather than paperwork
- Understand impact of their services on their clients and the communities they work with
- Ensure their sustained operations with strong fundraising and staff/volunteer recruitment
Infoxchange, ACOSS, NCOSS and TRI Community Exchange have partnered to present this workshop to support NSW community service organisations to develop an IT plan, develop their Digital Capability and sustain their operations.
What workshop attendees will get from this workshop:
- An understanding of their technology strengths and opportunities for improvement
- Tricks other non-profits use to reduce cost and improve staff satisfaction
- The key elements of their organisation’s IT improvement plan.
Prior to the workshop, all participants must complete an online self-assessment which will help them understand the strengths and weaknesses of their organisation’s technology environment – and the areas they should potentially focus their technology improvement efforts.
In the workshop we will cover the following topics
- Technology in the NFP sector – how do you compare to others?
- Emerging trends – Cloud, Big data, BYOD. So what?
- Getting off the NFP technology roller-coaster ‘wild ride’
- Non-profit Cloud services vs. local infrastructure – What can reduce my costs & let me sleep at night?
- Digital marketing & social media – should I bother?
- Case management & CRM systems – what are they, how do I move forward?
- Bringing it all together & developing your IT plan.
This workshop is non-technical in nature and has been designed for the person in your organisation that is responsible for managing technology but who may not have any formal IT expertise. While intended for organisations with less than 120 staff, many organisations with hundreds of staff have also found it highly valuable.
