Who is NetSquared?

NetSquared is a global community of individuals who are passionate about nonprofit technology. NetSquared Memphis is part of the larger NetSquared community, which is a program  of  TechSoup.org.  NetSquared Memphis represents just 1 of over 146 groups worldwide (and growing).

NetSquared  Memphis primary goal it to educate nonprofits about technology that will assist in furthering local organizational missions. Nonprofit leaders can suggest topics, engage in meaningful conversations, and create awareness about why technology is important to a nonprofit’s growth.

Workshops provides technical assistance in the area of  such as fundraising, marketing, using cloud resources, and  more. Nonprofits need technology capacity building, but resources are few and far between. Unlike other capacity building organizations, NetSquared Memphis in person sessions and online tools are provided for free.

We only ask you to engage and contribute your voice to building NetSquared Memphis to a strong and long term group.

You can join the NetSquared Memphis Meetup Group, or join our newsletter to get notifications of sessions, special event topics, or webinars.

NetSquared  is a community focused project sponsored  by TechSoup.org to help nonprofits understand how to utilize technology to build stronger nonprofits. Co-organizers, like Jodie, volunteer to bring community training events to their local community and cultivate topics relevant to the host’s geographic community.

No two NetSquared Communities are alike.

Does my nonprofit have to pay for this workshops?

NO. Absolutely not. What NetSquared and the Host of the event ask is that you participate: give honest feedback and recommend NetSquared Memphis to others in the nonprofit community.  If you have topics related to technology, let the host know and hopefully in future events those topics can be worked into a seminar. NetSquared Memphis hopes the seminars are fun, interactive, and educational.  So RSVP on Meetup or Join the our newsletter!

When are the seminar dates and location?

The tentative dates are every last Thursday of the month. Plans are to hold this seminar at the University of Memphis at the FedEx Institute Room 225 (tentatively, but room numbers could change). The seminars are 1-2 hour. Please come ready with laptops and note taking materials (pens, papers, organizers).  If you need other materials, the host will try to convey that message via meetup.com or on Facebook.

If I miss a meeting are there additional times and dates for the class?

If you miss a NetSquared Memphis session, more than likely the topic will not be covered again. There are so many technology topics that need to be covered, it will be difficult to repeat the session again. However, do not fret. Once the group has been established, we hope to have videos, PDF’s, and e-Courses after the events that are relevant to the topics you missed.  No decision has been made how the content will distributed at this time.

I am a for-profit organization, how can I assist NetSquared Memphis?

Like us on Facebook, share our Facebook post, write a guest blog post, donate to assist with promoting this group, and/or become a sponsor. Let other nonprofits know about this free event. Help promote NetSquared Memphis within the community.  Options are open!!!!

NetSquared Memphis really needs a “brain trust”. The brain trust connects NetSquared Host with relevant community partners who can deliver topics about technology.  It may just require an introduction to people in the technology arena.

You may also volunteer to deliver a seminar on a topic you have an expertise. If you want to be a part of the brain trust please contact Jodie.
