I attended NTEN‘s Nonprofit Technology Conference (NTC) in Austin, Texas last week and it was pretty darn incredible. I gained so much in just a few short days: ideas, inspiration, knowledge, connections, and new friends. It was my first time at a NTC and I’m already wishing it was 2016 so I could be back amongst the people who made it such a fantastic experience!

As I ease back into my regular work life I hope to write a bit about each day and share some of the stand-out experiences here. Until then, I’ll leave you with a few photos.

15NTC Ignite
I gave an Ignite talk on Friday morning in front of 1,000+ people. Here I am asking people to raise their hand if they’ve ever volunteered. (Spoiler: Seemed like everyone raised their hand.) See my slides here. Photo by Jamie Smith.

  1. Talk about making an impact on your first NTC. Tearing it up on the main stage in front of nearly 2,000 people, making impressions on countless folks and reminding everyone how awesome libraries are. Well played indeed.

    Thanks again for all your contributions and looking forward to seeing you continue to shine in the community as we head towards next year in San Jose.

    1. Thank you so much, Ash! I’m grateful to NTEN to have had the opportunity to share something that matters to me a great deal. I’ve had some wonderful conversations with folks at 15NTC and on Twitter in the last week or so because of my Ignite topic. Thank you for all your detailed and timely information for speakers as well as coordination during the conference. I look forward to continued growth and connections through the NTEN community!
