New Year’s Resolution: Attend Bagels & Bytes Meetups!

Bagels & Bytes attendees sitting around a table talking about techWhy a nonprofit tech meetup is good for you

If you are managing technology at your nonprofit, whether intentionally or accidentally, it’s useful and healthy to connect with other people doing similar work. The Bayer Center organizes the Bagels & Bytes meetups to provide space for the nptech community to connect and communicate.

About Bagels & Bytes meetups

If you’ve never attended Bagels & Bytes, we welcome you to check us out! If you used to attend, but haven’t in a while, make 2017 your year to come back. Everyone needs to take time out for “sharpening the saw” – we all need to build in time for stepping back, reflecting and getting our creative juices flowing again. Bagels & Bytes is just one way to do this.

As usual, bring your tech questions, ideas, and issues. Join our fellowship of nonprofit techies (professional and “accidental” are equally welcome) as we brainstorm, share ideas and solutions, and support each other.

Additionally, we will receive a tour of ARL’s facility during the last half hour of our meeting!
