It’s that time of year again where you get to choose which sessions make it into the 2019 Nonprofit Technology Conference (#19NTC). 60 percent of decision making juice comes from individual user votes so don’t think this is some sort of “we value your opinion until it comes time to make the decision” sort of thing.
On the contrary, One of the #19NTC most unique qualities is facilitating registered user voting for sessions they want (and need) to see at the conference. We’re not talking suggested topics, rather, the full list of submitted proposals.
One genuinely cool aspect of this year’s conference is the inclusion of 30-minute tactical sessions designed to provide applicable skills on a very specific tool. That’s pretty much the driving idea behind ArtsHacker so I was thrilled to see this session track introduced.
Of the three sessions I submitted, two are in the tactical track.
I would be grateful if everyone could take a moment to vote for the sessions I submitted. You will need a registered user account to vote but the good news is registration is free and very fast.
Just select the “Login/Signup” button in the main menu, fill out a few form fields, and you’re all set. And if you aren’t a full member, I strongly recommend joining.
