TNB Roundtable: A Frank Discussion of Technology Procurement for Nonprofits
Tech Networks of Boston (TNB) is pleased to invite nonprofit professionals to a Roundtable session on technology procurement for nonprofit organizations. Our featured guests will Tuan Pham and Adam Lyons of Tech Networks of Boston.
Here is what Adam and Tuan say about this session:
‘We all have many problems on our plates, and all can seem equally important. The goal of this session is to help you to share challenges and concerns of future technology needs, with your peers and with procurement specialists. Expect to get an honest and intimate discussion about what “technology procurement” is and isn’t. It is better to understand and recognize a problem and gain an understanding of the constraints and processes involved with getting things from Point A to Point B, getting them Just-In-Time, and getting them in a cost-effective way.’
