Nonprofit IT Expert Round Table 2023
Join three Community IT Innovators executives for an “ask the experts” discussion and Q&A. Our executives, with decades of nonprofit IT experience between them, will look at how our predictions from last year played out. Come hear their predictions for 2023!

They will discuss nonprofit technology trends we expect to continue to impact our sector this year. You’ll learn how to ensure your nonprofit is up to date on the essentials in a changing landscape.

This is always one of our most popular webinars as we take your questions on nonprofit tech.

CEO Johan Hammerstrom will share his experience and observations on the top technology trends that nonprofits are using right now. Whether you have outsourced or in-house IT support, if you are back in the office or working remotely for the foreseeable future, Johan will have some insights for you on the best practices of your peers and forward-thinking nonprofits.

We expect cloud-based tech to continue to be the ongoing story of the modern office, for nonprofits as well as everyone else. Are you migrating to the cloud? Are you in the cloud but wondering if your team is utilizing all the tools you have, or has all the tools you need? Director of IT Consulting Steve Longenecker discusses his experience with cloud computing platforms, migrations, and implementations, and will give his educated guess on where cloud tech will be in 3-5 years and how to get ready for that future.

The need for Cybersecurity is not going away. Ever. In fact, cybersecurity safeguards and training are evolving as nonprofits suffer increasing hacks, wire fraud, and ransomware. Community IT Innovators’ CTO and cybersecurity expert Matt Eshleman will answer all your questions on emerging threats, prevention, and staff cybersecurity training. Does your organization need a cybersecurity assessment or cybersecurity insurance?

As with all our webinars, this presentation is appropriate for an audience of varied IT experience.
