2014 NCTech4Good Conference Wrap-up
We had a great crowd at the Friday Center in Chapel Hill June 5 and 6, 2014 for NCTechGood’s 5th annual conference! Many thanks to those who attended for their active participation, contributing their expertise and making it so much fun! Special thanks to our presenters and sponsors for making it all happen.

The conference wiki already contains links to sessions and their materials, photos, and short videos, and participants are continuing to add their personal touches.

Can you imagine brainstorming with 60+ people? It worked! Check out the brainstorming videos from Beth Kanter’s workshop.

Though we are still working on wrapping up the 2014 conference, the NCT4G Team is already working on 2015, so put it on your calendar – June 4 and 5 at the Friday Center, Chapel Hill. What ideas do you have for 2015? We are particularly interested in your suggestions for the workshop. Send your ideas to info@nctech4good.org. Also note on your calendar that we’ll be asking for session proposals the first week of January.

Check back here later for information on the 2015 conference as it develops.

Can we top the 2014 NCT4G Conference in 2015?

Beth Kanter's pre-conference workshop June 5 in Chapel Hill was outstanding, with 100% of survey participants responding that the workshop was worth their time and also that it was a good value! The hands-on format allowed participants to map their networks and plan ways to use social media more effectively. The conference planning team is currently working with Laura Quinn, Executive Director, Idealware on ideas for another interactive workshop which we think will be extremely valuable. Mark your calendars now so you don't miss out on the 2015 NCTech4Good Conference, June 4-5 at the Friday Center in Chapel Hill. We'll open registration and request session proposals in January.

During the summer, we've assembled materials and posts from the 2014 conference. The website's "wiki," at http://nctech4good.org/2014wiki, contains a collection of materials added and edited by the conference website's users, including session descriptions and materials, a summary of evaluations, links to Beth Kanter's resources and Beth Kanter's Storify, and the Ryan Boyles Storify summary of his presentation at the July NCTech4Good meeting on "Using Storify to Share Your Work" where he Storified the conference.

Check out the wiki and be sure not to miss the 2015 conference. Watch the website for updates.
