2010 NCTech4Good Conference
NCTech4Good, a Triangle area Meetup Group, is the local hub, the central place, for learning and helping others learn how technology can advance the mission of nonprofit organizations. It hosts monthly meetings usually on the third Wednesday of the month, 6:30-8:30 pm, at the United Way of the Greater Triangle. Learn more about these meetings at the meetup site. If you're in the area, join us for a meeting.
As a meetup, NCTech4Good has an informal structure, but it is supported by the N.C. Center for Nonprofits, United Way of the Greater Triangle, Public Information Network, Inc. (also known as RTPnet), NTEN, and NetSquared — all organizations dedicated to providing nonprofit organizations support and education on improving efficiency and effectiveness through information technologies.
What happened at the 2010 conference
The first NCTech4Good Conference (June 25, 2010 at The William and Ida Friday Center in Chapel Hill, NC) brought together, from across the state, more than 100 representatives of the nonprofit and technology communities to identify and address the technology needs of the nonprofit community in North Carolina. There are lots of great posts about the conference:
- Raphael and Trish posted videos of the keynote, portions of other sessions, and interviews and conversations. Links are in the agenda.
- RJ captured almost 300 photos covering most of the day and uploaded them to PhotoBucket; you can view/download them individually, or as a slideshow.
- Andre created a Twapper Keeper folder with all the tweets about this event (#nct4g2010).
- There's a Flickr group for photos and videos related to the conference and you can post there. You may also browse photos tagged "nct4g2010".
- More than half attendees at #nct4g2010 conference are on @bph twitter list
When you post your photos, videos, and notes, please let us know by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Some of the photos by RJ and Birgit are included in the slideshow below.

The Conference Planning Team (all volunteers) used collaboration tools, including Google groups, Google docs, ReadyTalk, and FreeConferenceCall, to plan the 2010 conference. If you would like to help plan the 2011 conference, please join the NCT4G-Conf-Leadership group. It doesn't make any difference where you live. The group would appreciate more help.
