Grassroots Use of Technology Conference
14 Mar 2005
Want to learn how to use the newest technologies to propel your group's activism into the 21st century, while networking with others who share the same passion?
6th Annual Grassroots Use of Technology Conference

Friday, April 15 and Saturday, April 16, 2005

This is the 6th annual conference of Organizers' Collaborative Keynote Speaker, Micah Sifry. The theme for this year's event is "Building Bridges"

workshops/discussions will include:

content management for nonprofit web sites * mobilizing people at the local level * w3c web accessibility * Donor database options * online fundraising * cyber campaigns: what has worked? * geographic information systems * what is Plone-Mumbo-Drupal? * blogging for grassroots groups * Online tools for coalitions Using RSS to share information among organizations * plus many more topics!

There will be plenty of time for discussion and networking. The low cost of attending makes it accessible for all types of community organizations. Last year's event was filled to capacity, and we expect this years conference (limited to 250) to be a complete sellout too -- So register early!

New this year: Community Day on Friday, April 15th. This will be a free event for registrants, Boston non-profits, and others not able to attend on Saturday. It will include introductory panel discussions and workshop sessions on technology and organizing.
