    Your website is the face of your organization—but like any familiar face, you stop seeing it the way others see it. Maybe it's time to take a fresh look at your site to understand whether your audience and your staff members are getting what they need from it.

    Over five sessions, Idealware will help you think through how to develop a more useful and engaging website. They’ll walk you through website basics, how to lead a redesign project, best practices for accessibility, mobile optimization, content management systems, technical details, and online branding. They’ll also talk about how website content works alongside email, direct mail, and social media efforts to create an organization’s communications mix.

    During this course you’ll:

    • Audit your site against a core set of questions.
    • Define goals for how your website will serve your audience.
    • Learn best practices for designing an accessible, usable, and polished website.
    • Think through your content strategy and approach to your site’s design.
    • Dig into website analytics and how you can use metrics to optimize the user experience for your site visitors.
    • Review the technical side of developing and managing your website.
    • Synthesize your research, ideas, and strategies into a vision that you can share across your organization.
    • Create an action plan and prioritize the steps you will need to take.

    5-part webinar series: October 3 - 31 (Thursdays), 2019; 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM (Mountain). All registered participants are granted access to the recordings of each session. Participants who cannot attend any of the sessions due to scheduling conflicts will still have access to the toolkit presentation desks and handouts.

    Presented by Harbor Compliance 

    What are the charitable solicitation registration requirements and what does it take to be compliant? If your nonprofit is raising funds, you may be required to register with state charity officials in certain states. Forty-one states require charitable solicitation registration, and many other states require the use of specific disclosure language in nonprofit solicitations. If you’re fundraising online or through email lists, you may need to meet requirements in many or all of those states.

    We are excited to now present an opportunity for you to hear directly from a compliance specialist at Harbor Compliance, a valued partner that has helped thousands of nonprofits gain tax exempt status, manage state and federal filings and achieve worry-free compliance nationwide. They are hosting a free webinar on October 17 from 11:00am to 12:00pm MDT. After the presentation, there will be a question and answer session

    Space is limited, so REGISTER NOW to save your seat!

    Nearly every small nonprofit has a staffer who stumbled into being the go-to techie around the office. They often have little training—just a good head for technology and the patience to deal with the many issues that come up in a busy office.

    Are you one of these “accidental techies”? This course is designed to give you a boost—in knowledge, resources, and confidence—to help you embrace your role and thrive as an intentional techie. Over three weeks, Idealware will show you how to get through the big and small IT issues that most nonprofits face.

    Throughout this course, you will:

    • Familiarize yourself with the basics of your organization’s infrastructure.
    • Learn the fundamentals of networking and backing up shared files.
    • Discover best practices of an effective software administrator.
    • Explore new software options.
    • Review security risks and safety principles.
    • Discuss technology planning and how to help organizations get what they need from their technology resources.
    • Learn how to keep IT responsibilities from taking over your job.

    We’ll provide you with articles prior to each session to help you get started thinking about the topic. In addition, between each session, participants will complete worksheets to help them make progress within their own organization.

    Whether you’ve been figuring out IT issues on the fly for years or had IT greatness thrust upon you, this course can save time, improve the effectiveness of your existing technology, and build a solid foundation to tackle future IT challenges.

    3-part webinar series: November 7-21 (Thursdays), 2019; 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM (Mountain). All registered participants are granted access to the recordings of each session. Participants who cannot attend any of the sessions due to scheduling conflicts will still have access to the toolkit presentation desks and handouts.
