TechNow, our region’s annual technology conference for nonprofits, provides a full day of learning, fellowship, networking, and fun for those with an interest in their organization’s technology management. This exciting event will take place on Thursday, October 28, 2010, at the Sewall Center at Robert Morris University’s Moon Township campus.
This year, we will be joined by Katya Andresen, Chief Operating Officer of Network for Good. In her keynote session, “Homer Simpson for Nonprofits: The Truth about How People Really Think and What It Means for Promoting Your Cause,” Katya will discuss how the success of an organization’s online outreach hinges on its understanding of the inner workings of the human mind. You will learn the basics of the new and revolutionary field of behavioral economics and how you can use these principles to craft more effective messages that will win the hearts and minds of your audience.
In addition to the keynote and breakout sessions, The Bayer Center will present the 2010 results of its bi-annual Southwestern Pennsylvania Nonprofit Technology Survey over lunch. Breakfast, snacks, and beverages will be provided throughout the day and, as usual, there will be some super prize give-aways!
