San Jose, California (PRWEB) June 26, 2014

The technology-focused event will be held at the Microsoft Silicon Valley Campus Conference Center in Mountain View from 1:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, July 8. This effort is in conjunction with SVCN’s HandsOn Tech program, a larger initiative focused exclusively on improving technology use in the nonprofit sector.

“Technology is at the root of all we do, from making calls and sending emails to updating our community via social media and sending grant reports,” said Clair McDevitt from Community Initiatives.

Among great local and national nonprofit technology experts, our featured speakers include Bryan Breckenridge, the new Executive Director of Box.org and Peggy Duvette, Director of Social Impact at Netsuite.org. Event sessions will help organizations from the nonprofit sector learn and become more familiar with technology tools and concepts. The goal is for staff to improve their efficiency and effectiveness using technology in the workplace.

An attendee of our previous TechConnect conference shared some key takeaways from the event, “The crowd funding panel has given me lots of knowledge around structure, timing, and strategy that I will use as I kickoff our next crowd funding campaign in May.”

Some of the session highlights for the upcoming event include Storytelling for Change Makers with Emmy award-winning, Cara Jones, Demystifying Pro Bono Volunteers with the Taproot Foundation and LinkedIn, Adopting to Technology Change in Your Nonprofit with Phoenix 2.0, and Social Entrepreneurship and Technology with Pamela Hawley from UniversalGiving.
