Nonprofit Marketing and IT Teams: An Unlikely Yet Potent Collaboration 

Thursday, February 23, 2017

11:45 am - 1:00 PM

Chicago Community Trust

225 North Michigan Avenue, Suite 2200

Nonprofit marketing teams and IT teams do very different work at our organizations.

However, both groups have so much they could learn from each other to make everything work better.

This panel discussion will be an opportunity to show that marketing and IT can be partners to help IT achieve better communication around technology and help marketing be better internal advocates for tech at their organization. (See panelist information below)

Attendees can expect to learn how marketing leaders can leverage technology and data to build smarter, more cost-effective initiatives to reach and engage audiences.

Please RSVP by Tuesday, February 21 at 12:00 noon

(Don't forget identification for lobby security!)

(We will update this week on lunch plans--looking for a sponsor.)  

If you RSVP yes and your plans change, please update us or cancel your ticket with Eventbrite. We frequently "sell out" and that will allow another person to attend. 


Our panelists' work spans marketing and technology in the nonprofit sector and beyond.
