In January of 2017, Chisa D. Pennix-Brown, MBA took over the reigns of Tech Thursdays for the Guilford Nonprofit Consortium. Since the inception of the “Amplify Format”, which allows the event to be free and open to the public there has been a drastic rise in participation from non-members and a surge in current members who were not participating.
Tech Thursdays are a monthly series of workshops that address opportunities and challenges that nonprofits face with emerging technology. Each session is presented by a volunteer expert and the sessions allow attendees to gain new insights and best practices in areas like social media, understanding website analytics, and maximizing online donations. Having the Amplify Format was the goal of collaboration instituted by Pennix-Brown, who is the CEO of Lady Bizness. “My business thrives on collaborations, and non-profit organizations are still businesses. People still need to market their businesses regardless of their tax status and providing access to technical skills that can be passed on to others improves the individual, the organization, and ultimately the community.”
Tune in on Friday, April 14, 2017 from 7:30-8 am to find out what is in store for the rest of the year, how you can get involved, and what you can do to grow your business and/or nonprofit organization. Ben Donnelly will air the show live on the Triad in Focus show on www.WSNCRadio.org.
