Nonprofits + technology = NTEN from JD Lasica on Vimeo.

JD LasicaHolly Ross, executive director of the Nonprofit Technology Network (NTEN), talks about the organization’s mission in helping nonprofits learning how to effectively use technology and social media.

She talks about three new reports that should be of interest to nonprofits — including the just-released 2009 Nonprofit Social Network Survey Report and Small is the New Big: 2009 eNonprofit Benchmarks Study — as well as We Are Media: Social Media Starter Kit for Nonprofits, a workshop/training series led by Beth Kanter.

All of the conference’s sessions are available as free audio downloads (plus PowerPoint presentations). In addition, several webinars are available as well, such as Using Facebook Pages for Social Good, $30 for members, $60 for nonmembers.

The interview was conducted at the conclusion of NTEN’s annual Nonprofit Technology Conference in San Francisco on April 28, 2009. (Holly’s a friend, so we got a little silly at the end.) We had to find a makeshift “set” on a staircase at the San Francisco Hilton because there was no place anywhere to shoot with decent lighting and that wasn’t crazy-loud.

Next year’s NTC will be held in Atlanta in early April, and I hope to be back.

Coming up before that: ForeSee Results’ Nonprofit Website Study: Building Donations and Loyalty through the Web Channel, a free webinar on May 27.
