Track: Interact in Roundtables
Workshop Block 2 – Saturday, October 26 – 1:45 PM – 3:15 PM
Room: Central Street Room (Lobby Level)
Databases, websites, and other technology services can enable your chapter to track members, donations, and the work you do. Even more importantly, using tech tools can help reduce workloads for volunteers and ensure smoother leadership transitions. But it isn’t always easy to learn about new options and implement them with your chapter. This roundtable discussion will give you a chance to ask questions, share information, and network with others who are working to leverage evolving technology to be more effective. Bring your questions and expertise to the roundtable!
