TNB Roundtable: Integrated Services and Emerging Technologies for Nonprofits
Tech Networks of Boston (TNB) is pleased to invite nonprofit professionals to a Roundtable session on integrated IT services and emerging technologies for nonprofit organizations. Our featured guests will be Eric Harris and Amen Adonon of Tech Networks of Boston, and Scott Blackman of ROCA Inc.
Nonprofit organizations are uniquely susceptible to operational struggles due to inadequacies in their available tools, services, and human capital. Advances in technology have led to efficiencies and workflows that can address these exposures and advance the capacity of nonprofit entities to further their missions and serve their constituents. The aim of this session is to foster a discussion that will raise awareness and inspire insight into collaborative integrated services concepts and models, and that will showcase the exciting emerging technologies on the horizon.
