I just got back from meeting the new Executive Director of NTEN, Katrin Verclas. If you don’t know about NTEN, they are the Nonprofit Technology Enterprise Network. They are best known for a great annual conference about the use of technology in nonprofits. Katrin was here in Chicago today as part of her meet and greet tour of some major cities. Bottom line, she’s a good hire. Energetic, engaged, and ambitious. She has a vision for the place, that – reading between the lines – will make it a more professional and more useful source of information and networking for the nonprofit community. And, she bought my beer.
