Day 2 of NTEN’s Nonprofit Technology Conference (#NTC) in Washington, DC is when things really kick into high gear. If you’re not here, then you can watch some of the sessions on NTC Online or on Blackbaud TV.
It was great to pick up an NTENny Award yesterday and being most likely to “Write an awesome article for your newsletter with an hour’s notice.”
I will be a part of two presentations and both of them will be broadcast online. Blackbaud TV will be doing live streaming of three sessions today:
Live and Interactive: Your Website in Focus
Friday, March 18, 2011, 10:30 am to 12:00 pm

On a first-come-first-serve basis, attendees may sign up for a personal review and ten-minute brainstorm about their organizations’ sites, conducted by Raheel Gauba, Blackbaud’s director of creative services. To have your site be one of the five reviewed during the session, register by emailing email@example.com.
