TECHNOW IS…

…a one-day regional conference that connects nonprofits with the technology resources, information and people it needs to succeed!

Here’s what nonprofit professionals think of TechNow.

I thought all the breakout sessions I attended were informative. I learned something in each one.

[2016] was my first time at this conference and I was very pleased and impressed. I will attend in the future!

My organization had specific needs and being able to have a face-to-face with multiple vendors was extremely helpful.
