ProfDev: Manage Data with Less Stress
29 Jan 2014
Are you at a nonprofit that's overwhelmed by technology? Do you feel like the unimaginable pile of tech you're working with isn't quite paying off with less work? Is it frustrating that even with extensive data management tools at your disposal, you're not able to efficiently manage or create reports from your data?

Join Socializing for Justice for a ProfDev (professional development) training on Data Lifecycle Management on Monday, February 3, 6:00 - 8:30 PM. Fee: $10 advance/$20 door Limited space - register ahead of time:> Credit cards accepted online. Cash only at the door (if space available). Newcomers always welcomed!

Data Lifecycle Management More and more nonprofits are moving towards more sophisticated data gathering. But for all the rewards of this trend, they run a risk of unintentionally increasing their workload by adding new tools and new reporting demands that are out of alignment. This is especially true for small and mid-sized nonprofits who lack a central IT and data management staff to help them design and implement these tools. This training draws on nearly two decades of experience helping real, busy people deal with large, complex data systems. You'll learn some new ways of thinking about data lifecycle that can have real impact on your daily workload and empower you to get what you need out of technology consultants.

With 2400 members and 7+ years of creating a diverse cross-issue community in Boston (165+ events!), Socializing for Justice is the best place to find the great people, organizations and community you're looking for while putting the SOCIAL back in social justice.
