Associations depend on tech teams to help them solve problems, seize opportunities and serve members. 

But when your IT team talks “tech” and you talk “business,”  failure to communicate can seriously slow (even derail) growth and put your nonprofit at risk.

Don’t think you have to settle—or struggle. Let an IT expert show you how to partner with your crew to translate tech initiatives into the benefits and outcomes necessary to reach your mission-and-members goals.

Register now for Your Association’s Tech Initiatives: Setting Goals, Mitigating Risks and Aligning With Your Mission and Members.

In this 90-minute webinar, IT consultant George Breeden explains strategies nonprofits can use to manage high-stakes technology projects most successfully.  You’ll learn how to make technology decisions that deliver the best value for achieving your mission and serving your members.

From updates to new integrations, you’ll come away knowing how to leverage your technology partner’s expertise to help you set effective goals and mitigate risks efficiently. Plus, you’ll have the chance to ask your own questions during the Q&A portion of the webinar.

Reserve your space now to learn how to make technology decisions that reward you with greater control over business risks, benefits and outcomes, including:

  • Ways to change the dialogue from tech speak to business speak
  • Techniques for working effectively with technical providers
  • How to identify core risks and what’s being done to mitigate them
  • What dangerous staff practices IT must troubleshoot
  • How to prepare for the most common business disruptions
  • How to minimize the impact of tech employees or vendors suddenly becoming unavailable

Remember, in an era where associations must do more with less, it’s critical to make your technology investment buy efficiency, effectiveness and value. Don’t miss your opportunity to build this strategic dimension into every IT decision.
