What's your most important nonprofit technology New Year’s resolution?
Joining my neighborhood fitness club, eating healthier and getting more involved in local activities are all great resolutions to make my life better in the New Year. But Connection Café is reserved for sharing ideas and insight that helps nonprofits make the world a better place so I’ll save my extensive (and unoriginal) list of resolutions to bore my friends and family…
Rather than sharing our personal resolutions here, we’re teaming with a number of nonprofit bloggers and thought leaders to help create a community discussion and sharing of the best - and maybe worst - resolutions nonprofit professionals can make to help them fulfill their mission in 2009. And to help capture all the great insight the nonprofit community has in store with its resolutions, we’ve also created a poll to capture your ideas on how to make technology work for you and your organization in 2009.
Most of my friends rarely follow through on their resolutions (never me, of course!), but we don’t want that to happen to people in the nonprofit community. Because we all run into challenges and obstacles that keep us from keeping our resolutions, we won’t just be creating a community discussion, but rather we’re going to listen to the resolutions and obstacles you share and use that to create a meaningful and useful Resolutions Guide. This guide will provide helpful advice, tips and success stories that can better help you keep your 2009 resolutions. But we need your help to create it. And to make the guide as useful as possible to all nonprofits using technology, we want to not just hear your actual resolutions but the obstacles and challenges you face in keeping these as well.
Our CC bloggers will be sharing resolutions this week and next, commenting and linking to some of the best we see in the blog world and all the while listening to your resolutions and challenges to develop the guide. So please share your resolutions and challenges in the comments section below, on our 2009 Resolutions Poll and discussion thread or email them to me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We resolve to help you keep your resolutions, but we need to hear more from you before we can help so take the poll and drop us a comment.
And don't forget to check out these great nonprofit bloggers’ resolutions for 2009. They'll be sharing their 2009 outlooks and plans over the next couple of days, and you might just find yourself inspired or inclined to drop them a comment, as well.
