 ProfDev: Manage Date With Less Stress by Jenn Taylor, 501Partners
Monday, February 3 - 6-8:30PM
The NonProfit Center (by South Station)

Are you a nonprofit that's overwhelmed by technology? Do you feel like the
unimaginable pile of tech you're working with isn't quite paying off with
less work? Is it frustrating that even with extensive data management tools
at your disposal, you're not able to efficiently manage or create reports
from your data?

More and more nonprofits are moving towards more sophisticated data
gathering. But for all the rewards of this trend, they run a risk
of unintentionally increasing their workload by adding new tools and new
reporting demands that are out of alignment. This is especially true for
small and mid-sized nonprofits who lack a central IT and data management
staff to help them design and implement these tools.

This training draws on nearly two decades of experience helping real, busy
people deal with large, complex data systems. You'll learn some new ways of
thinking about data lifecycle that can have real impact on your daily
workload and empower you to get what you need out of technology consultants.

*Fee: $10 advance/$20 door*
*Limited space - register ahead of time: www.sojust.org
<http://www.sojust.org>* - *newcomers always welcomed!*
Credit cards accepted online. Cash only at the door (if space available).
