Office 365 for IT Staff and Consultants Tuesday, March 3, 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Learn more about why nonprofits are choosing Office 365, how it's saving them money, and how to successfully implement it. IT staff and consultants will have the opportunity to learn tips and tricks about implementing Office 365 at nonprofit organizations. Everyone will have time to ask questions and find out more about the benefits of O365 for nonprofits. This event will be hosted by TechSoup and our partner, Tech Impact.
Have questions about implementing and licensing Office 365? Sign up for free one-on-one help from TechSoup and Tech Impact about Office 365 and other technology questions. Office hours are held at the Microsoft booth.
TechSoup will be in booths numbered 634 and 636.

We'll have lounge areas in our booth where you can sit; meet TechSoup staff; and learn about upcoming events, webinars, and new TechSoup catalog products.
Our donor partners are sharing the love too! As you stroll through the Science Fair, look for TechSoup signs identifying our donor partners.

Big Data and Open Data Reuse by Nonprofits for the Creation of Sustainable Social Services — Wednesday, March 4, 10:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
While open datasets and Big Data are being used commercially to reap tremendous profits, the data is increasingly being used for social benefit too. Steve Nagoski, senior data scientist at TechSoup, will discuss steps that nonprofits can take to use their data and publicly available datasets to make better-informed decisions for greater good. Want to connect with Steve in advance of NTC? He's happy to answer your burning data questions.
Community Organizers Connect — Thursday, March 5, 10:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
Are you a community manager or builder? This session is for you. Elijah van der Giessen, TechSoup's NetSquared community organizer, will be meeting with fellow community organizers to discuss the challenges and rewards of growing both online and offline communities. Bring your ideas and experience about event logistics, creative formats, and building robust communities. A lively discussion is sure to ensue.
Digital Battles for the World's Souls — Friday, March 6, 8:30 a.m. – 10:00 a.m.
Chris Worman, TechSoup's senior director of Global Media, will speak about the rigid controls over the media and the multiple restrictions placed on NGOs in many parts of the world. Technology is providing the information needed to empower organizations to change this trend. Chris will explore how to solidify and strengthen the nonprofit sector's position.
NTC is the most important gathering for the NetSquared community, because it brings together our Meetup organizers from 50 cities. NTC gives us another chance to connect and share best practices for organizing communities.
