Over the past year, our friends over at NTEN have quietly created and launched a pretty remarkable resource for the nonprofit community. The NTEN:Change journal, designed for non-technical nonprofit leadership staff, is a quarterly publication that's stuffed cover-to-cover with useful, interesting articles and other bits of information. Sure, we've got a horse in this race, since we both sit on the editorial committee and provide content for the journal, but we wouldn't devote so much of our time to the cause if it wasn't one in which we believed.
If you haven't checked out NTEN:Change yet, there's no time like the present. And it's free.
The current issue addresses the power of data from the different perspectives of measuring impact and making effective decisions, database management, and turning data into impactful stories. And because it's a digital publication (no paper!), they've been able to incorporate exciting content like a mini-documentary (on Cloud for Nonprofits) and a podcast (on HIPAA compliance). We've got an article in there about how to decide whether a single constituent database makes sense for your organization, with case studies to back it up. We've also got an infographic mapping website ecosystems. In addition to our content, there's a slew of other good stuff written by some of the most insightful people working today in nonprofit technology.
Did I mention it was free?
One more thing: On page 40 of the current issue, at the bottom of NTEN Executive Director Holly Ross's article about essential tech tools executive directors, there's a chance for nonprofit readers to get free NTEN membership for their entire organization through 2012. There's no bad time to subscribe to NTEN:Change, but now's an even better time than usual. Sign up for free at http://nten.org/ntenchange
