Hudson Valley

Information Technology

With Jason Hutchins

The use of technology can mean the difference between success and failure of the processes, systems, and people in today’s nonprofit organizations. Participants will learn about the changing role of technology within organizations and how it impacts organizational and individual performance.  We will review common mistakes nonprofits make; explore how to avoid making these mistakes; and learn how to make sure that, as managers, IT brings a high return on our investment of money, people, and time.

This class will be suitable for everyone regardless of experience level with technology.

This Hudson Valley event is only open to those who have registered for the Excellence in Nonprofit Management Certificate Program.

Learning Objectives:

Participants will learn marketplace trends, best practices, and information on how to take advantage of opportunities in Information Technology (IT) available to nonprofits.  All of which will help them as managers within their departments, areas, and organizations.

The class will develop a practical knowledge of how cloud computing is changing the workplace.
