Vote for Your Favorite Nonprofit Technology Conference Panels

Conferences

The 2011 Nonprofit Technology Conference will take place on March 17-19, 2011 in Washington, DC.   Part of what makes the NTC unique is how they involve the community in every aspect of conference planning. Community voting on the 400+ session proposals has begun and will run through September 30th.

So, I spent some time reading through the proposals and bookmarked the ones I voted for.   Here’s three panel proposals from me or include my colleague, Geoff Livingston, from Zoetica.

Technology in Times of Disaster which features Geoff Livingston, Wendy Harman from the Red Cross, and George Durham as well as representatives from Nethope and Ushahadi (disclosure – I’m a board member).   Please vote for it.

How to use social photography to drive donations, interest and action: This one is from Geoff Livingston and other about they have used photos in social media to tell stories, drive donations, create interest, and produce action.

I proposed two panels  You Can’t Recycle Wasted Time on Social Networks and I’ve Found My Free Agent, Now What? If either of my two panels are accepted, I’ll be designing some fun, full room interactive learning experiences that will be intended to shake loose peer learning and shared insights.

For the one on being efficient, I’d love to team up with whoever proposed this panel “30 Minutes A Day for Social Media.”  The Free Agent session is similar to what I’ve proposed for SXSW and will be doing a “networked conversational keynote version” for the Department of State Civil Society 2.0 event in November.   Mark Horvath will be joining me as well as backchannel of people from around the world – that ought to be fun!

Here’s my complete list (if I missed your panel, add it in a comment – there were so many entries …). Here’s a few that especially caught my eye or were mentioned in a discussion over on my Facebook page.  Here’s a short list from Debra Askanase

  1. Thanks, Beth! I also have this one:

    How to use social photography to drive donations, interest and action.
    ShareThis

    The old adage, “a picture is worth a thousand words,” still holds true. And social network users know this with photos on Facebook, Twitter, Ning and Flickr always ranking as one of the top feature functions, and a frequent source of comments. Though one of the oldest forms of social media, photography is one of the least thought about from a nonprofit’s communications team. Learn from a panel of experts how they have used photos in social media to tell stories, drive donations, create interest, and produce action.
