Recently someone asked, "What makes you different?" I explained, "I am a grant consultant with a background in software and technology." If you're asking why that matters, you probably haven't had a chance to step behind the scenes of a small to mid-sized non-profit. These organizations are doing everything they can to fulfill their mission on a shoe-string budget. Most often, they have a very small staff, they start the day running and give 110%. Many of these organizations don't have their own technology staff or staff with technology expertise, leaving a knowledge gap.
I am excited to announce that Magic Lamp Consulting will be co-organizing a NetSquared Central Massachusetts Meetup Group to help bridge the technology gap. NetSquared, a program of TechSoup, is a global network of #Tech4Good Meetups, they are volunteer-run groups with a mission to connect nonprofits with technology communities. NetSquared provides an informal way to network and learn from experts on everything pertaining to digital for nonprofits.
NetSquared Central Massachusetts has announced the first three monthly Meetups, which will be held at the Leominster Public Library.
