Nonprofit Boot Camp

As many of you know, I am one of the founding partners of the Palmetto Technology Hub, or PATHPATH’s mission is to provide technology support and resources to the South Carolina lowcountry not-for-profit community.

Non-Profit Boot Camp

Now, after a year of work, we are proud to invite you to join us at The Charleston Place Hotel on June 30, 2011, for a day of technology, learning, and solutions geared towards the unique needs of nonprofit organizations.  BOOT Camp will feature speakers from Google and local techies with helpful information for your nonprofit and introduction to free tools, with ideas on how to best utilize them.

Did I mention the delicious food?  How about the classic Charleston venue?  Or the wonderful networking experience?

We are still working on the details for the afternoon sessions based on your input. Planning to attend and have a specific topic you hope we’ll cover? Please fill out our survey here.  We’re accepting input until May 1st.

Registration is currently available for nonprofits. (Please limit registration to two staff per organization so the maximum number of nonprofits can benefit).  Space permitting, we will open it to the general public after May 20th.
