Getting Started with Your Nonprofit Data
- How to decide what data to collect
- How to maintain the quality of your data
- How to turn your data into actionable information
- How to get the rest of your team to care about your data
Bring your questions and stories, and we will work with real-world examples to try and make our data useful and less scary.
Mark Mathyer, Data and Membership Services Manager at the Museum of Science and Industry
I have been collecting, maintaining, using and abusing data – and teaching others how to do it, too - for over 30 years, in Education, the Corporate world, Healthcare, Consulting, and the Non-Profit world. I have presented on the topic at NTEN, AASP, and the Do Good Data 2013 conference.
Last year I participated in an NTEN Community of Impact studying data sharing. You can read our report at: http://www.nten.org/blog/2014/02/01/new-report-collected-voices-data-informed-nonprofits . When I need a break from data, I keep score for my daughter’s Softball teams, and serve on the Board of Polarity Ensemble Theatre.
