Jean takagi and emily chan are legal contributors, explained the rules from my rs on what should be in all those acknowledgement letters that you send for two thousand twelve gif ts this week, candidates for causes robert eggers, president of sea forward working to rally candidates around non-profit platforms he and i will discuss how to assess those candidates in your local races and getting the non-profit agenda before them and how to support the candidates who step up also computers crash scott koegler, the editor of non-profit technology news and our monthly tech contributor, reminds us that technology can let us down. Your computer hardware will only last so long, so you should have a plan for replacing it. To avoid a crisis, i’ll talk to this former chief ah what’s the eye for, um information officer seo about the hardware lifecycle budgeting, training and planning damegreene eden intern also between the guests on tony’s take to my block this week is i am grateful and i’ll tell you what i’m grateful for. If you’re on twitter, you khun, join us, the hashtag there is non-profit radio use that hashtag wildly and it’s my pleasure now to welcome robert egger. He is the founder and president of sea forward on advocacy organization that rallies employees of non-profits to educate candidates about the economic role that non-profits play in every community and to support candidates who have detailed plans to strengthen the economy that includes non-profits and you’ll find they’re site at sea. The letter c forward dot org’s robert is also president of d c central kitchen, where food donated by hospitality businesses and farms, is used to fuel a culinary arts job training program. The kitchen is a ten million dollars a year self sustaining social enterprise. Since nineteen eighty nine, it has produced over twenty six million meals and helped a thousand men and women gain full time employment. In twenty thirteen, robert will open l a kitchen on the same model it’s. My pleasure to welcome robert egger. Robert. Welcome. Thanks, tony. Happy holidays. Thank you. Happy holidays to you, it’s. A pleasure to have you on pleasure to be here. What is the non-profit role in the economy? Why should why should candidates be paying attention? Well, it’s a bold statement that i believe that there is no profit without non-profits theirs. If you think about what community can attract a business or new new visits or young couples stay and maybe have a have a family, if they don’t have arts and culture, they don’t have communities of faith, education, healthcare, clean environment. You know, those are the things that the non profit sector produces. So you know what we’re saying is, look, there’s, a new civic mathematics that must come and play if the economic recovery is truly going to work. And that’s saying, in effect, that both non-profits and four profits are equally essential toe every city’s, every communities, every state’s, every country’s vibrancy. So what we need to do is elect people who understand that so we can move beyond the kind of old notion that dot com businesses drive the economy will dot or charities just do a good deed, very good, no profit without non-profit now the non-profit sector is about ten percent of our gross domestic product is that do you agree with that? Yeah, it is an effect, but, you know, if you really drill down a bit, which you’re looking at is in most cities non-profits are one of the top three employers, and so for example, in cities like new york, they’re the number one employer in the city now beyond that and again, i really want to emphasize a lot of people will say, well, that’s, not good, because the non-profits don’t create value, they don’t create revenue there and see what we’ve done is we kind of confused the word non-profit with not creating anything of value, but let’s, let’s, cool down just on the taxes i’ve seen this a lot recently where people say, non-profits don’t pay tax xero and i tell you what, brother, try and run and city without the payroll taxes non-profits pay every year and more importantly, trying to run a city where the city’s tax dollars have to go to make up for what non-profits do often times with money that’s brought in from outside the city. You know, we’re one of the major sources of outside investment in every single community. So a smart mayor we’ll understand there’s a tremendous potential to, for example, double the amount of money coming into the city or the state via the non-profit sector. By helping us, you know, say, in effect, what do you need? Can i help you develop partnerships? Can i help you? Uh get grants? What can i do to help you? Being the kind of resource is into this city or state that will help it grow and employ more people. How big is the non-profit sector where you are in washington d c we’re twenty six percent of the employment base in washington d c so when we look at the mayor’s race, for example, in two thousand fourteen were heavily democratic city. So the spring democratic primaries pretty much how we choose the mayor. So the goal is to say to the non profit sector, look, you know, it’s important, and i mean, many of you have historically kind of rallied around your individual cause, you know, housing the arts, aids, whatever and that’s important. But there are strategic moments when you need to let go of your immediate issue and stand together for the all boats must rise questions that i think are essential to be asking candidate. But again, what we’re trying to say to any candidate and and all the competitors, particularly when you look at a place like new york city next year where there’s a mayor’s race and his mayor bloomberg steps down there’s gonna be a lot of competition. We want to say to all the candidates, you know, whether you understand it or not, this is probably one of the biggest special interest groups in america that has yet to be courted and that there is a there is a potential political strategy here and an opportunity for candidate to who again can understand this new civic mathematics and again reach out to the sector and say, look, i’m moving beyond the kind of, you know, flowery rhetoric of i heart. Non-profits yeah, and i’ve got a detailed plan for if you will like me how i will partner with you from day one, you want to do social enterprise, you wanted micro credit to create jobs, man, i am your best friend, you know, you want to use volunteers, particularly our elders, who is very essential that they stay now have been engaged, you want to use those elders and meaningful voluntary activity, bring it on, you know, i’m one of those people who’s who i respect and understand the process, but i’m there’s the fierce urgency of now and frankly, after twenty five years in this business, i’m kind of bored of educating candidate yeah, i sense of a sense of frustration. Well, yeah, i mean, i feed poor people. I work in the basement of the biggest shelter in american i know what charity can do, but i know what we can do and the notion that somehow we’re supposed to keep moving on where we’re has to. Do mohr form or with less and be quiet about it now again, please understand, when i talk about frustration and not being quiet, i’m not talking about being belligerent are throwing bombs or being confrontational. I’m proposing, you know, an economic logic that says, in effect, just stop and listen, you know non-profits aren’t they actually create tremendous value? They are essential to any economic recovery, right? I want to talk about the recovery. Yes, right. And you’d be smart to really embrace us as partners. Okay? I love that. I like that a lot. No, no profit without non-profit and particularly in light of states trying to recover from several years of bad budgets. Do you have a sense of the role of non-profits in california? Bunny chance. I’m sort of putting on the spot. Do you know tremendously? I mean, look at san francisco and l a will both have mayor’s races next year, right? And no matter where you go, but do you have a sense of the role of the non-profits play in the state generally or in any cities in california? Oh, i mean again, you can’t go to any city in which there. Is not the non-profit sector isn’t one of the predominant employers. Okay, so that’s true in the central valley? Look, att cities like fresno, stockton, baker’s field, all of them killing bankruptcy. Yeah, this is the perfect opportunity when you, when you start to think about who’s going to come in and be the mayor and pull a city out of bankruptcy, this is an ideal time for candidates to kind of almost break free of the old kind of cemented notion of how you build the economy, which is let’s, attract a big factory or a stadium or, you know, municipal bonds. What we’re suggesting is that non-profits particularly those like the d c central kitchen. You know, we have multiple businesses that employ graduates of our program that might be going back to prison. We pay a living wage we and reinvest all our profit back in the community. Frankly, we’re the best friend any mayor has. You know, business is like the kitchen, and they should be aggressively trying to court and help mohr kind of transition from the traditional kind of service model into the empowerment model on. So i think that my my thing is you’ve got to elect people who understand that and again on day one, say, let’s work hand in hand. Business government non-profits altogether to rebuild the city in the state, even before day one. We want to get candidates adding the non-profit agenda to their platforms. And right now we’re going to take a break, robert. But we’re gonna have a chance, plenty time to talk about how to get their attention. What to do once you’ve gotten their attention and then using platform like, see forward how to endorse them. So i hope everybody’s going to stay with us and robert eckert certainly will, too.

I’m sorry, i can’t send out live listener love today because this show is pre recorded. It’s ah it’s tuesday before the friday that you’re going to be listening on the twenty first, so grateful for all the live listeners, but i can’t send you love city by city the way i like to do robert eggers, egger is with me and we’re talking about candidates for causes. Robert, how can we start to get the politicians attention? We’re talking about candidates now candidates, how can we get a candidate’s attention? Well, you know what what’s great is one of the vehicles we have, and this is the strategy were employing is saying, look, it’s it’s very it’s, almost impossible for organizations to be political themselves again. That’s part of our five a one c three charter ratification can’t before against any candidate but the private citizens who work at those non-profits can and that’s our strategy and see forward saying there’s ten point four million non-profit employees now what’s exciting is you look at that thing’s like twitter and facebook there isn’t a candidate out there who doesn’t have a facebook page or twitter account, and there isn’t a candidate out there who doesn’t have a staff person monitoring those accounts every single day. So in effect, what you have is the press conference that never ends. You know what used to be that moment where they could say no more questions, no more questions, and they were gone? Or if you might have had that opportunity at a press conference or a session to say mr cain and mrs kennedy, what do you think of the non profit sector? How would you partner? They could say, oh, i love the non-profit sector, the backbone of the community, thank you very much and split. Now we have the potential tohave literally if you think about it in cities like new york, l a, minneapolis, seattle ten thousand people every single day, relentlessly asking through facebook and twitter, what is your plan? We are one tenth of the economy, you know, one tenth of the workforce we channel the energy of millions of volunteers were major sources about sent investment what’s your plan and i think that that’s, the potential we have that we’ve never had before and that’s the seat forward strategy what we do, we’re almost like kiva in that we identify candidates all throughout the country. Last year we identified fifty three on sixty different candidates from, you know, races from mayor’s races down to city council. We’re going, we’re gonna have time to talk that way identified people who come from the nonprofit sector, okay, people, just like you and me, people who sweat out payroll there dedicated to make their community betters and now they’re standing up and running for office. And if they’re elected, they’re the kind of people who might stand up a city council member member meeting state legislature and eventually even you know, the house in the senate and really say, wait, wait, wait. I know this piece of legislation you think is important and will work. I work in the nonprofit sector. I come from the sector. I let me explain to you how it really works. Okay? This is essential. Not just for us is a sector, but for our country. Brother, you know what we’re saying is, look, will identify all these people and then you can come to our website and then you is private. Citizens khun go through our site to their website and give them directly. Okay, robert were saying little your you live in miami, you have you have a vested interest in helping somebody get elected in minneapolis, right? Robert? We’re gonna have a chance to talk about see forward and the success you’ve seen so far. Um, the only caveat that i want to add it just sorta amplify what you suggested that on. We’ve had a show about this with jean takagi and emily chan are legal contributors. When people are doing this sort of lobbying for the for the sector, they have to be careful what account they’re using. They shouldn’t be using their their company account, maybe they shouldn’t even be doing it on, you know, on the charities time. So just a just a caveat that politicking is important, but you have to be cautious about when you’re when you’re doing it on whose account you’re using and on what time that’s all and really, i’m really glad you brought that up, tony, because, you know, this is something you have to be wildly aware, like, for example, i’m at home, i’m using my private line. Right now, i can’t you know, i don’t do company time when i do stuff it’s, my private email or private twitter accounts that i do this work on or my c forward account. But that is it very important. Caveat you bring up well, yeah, you’re right, private citizens. But it has to be on your old time with your own account. Okay, alright, enough said. And we have and listeners could go back teo, show about politicking with gene and emily and listen to that for a lot more detail on what’s permitted and what’s not, um all right, so you want a you want a grassroots campaign to get the candidate’s attention? What kinds of? Well, i guess you’ve already you sort of laid out all the talking points. You just you wantto be able to specify what the impact of and the value for of charities is in your your local community in your state, you want to be ableto throw some stats in them at them and get their attention that way. But, you know, we also have an ask, you know, we’re making a point again. No profits without non-profits, but even if we elect a very smart candidate, you know, he or she on day one is going to be pulled fifty different directions. So what we’re proposing is, if you really understand its and particularly the role we play in attracting outside investment through grants or contracts, then why don’t you appoint a dedicated point person? For example, connecticut’s governor, governor malloy has a dedicated non-profit liaise on, and mayors in denver and los angeles have a dedicated staff person. And, for example, in denver, a very small office there, the office of strategic partnership has brought in almost fifty a million dollars in four years into the city from outside the city. New money? Uh, so again, that idea of a dedicated point person we think, is very strategic. And, you know, what we’re looking for is the kind of unifying principle for the sector that, again, we’re a very diverse group of people. We have a million different missions and sometimes their counter, but again, my bag is, you know, what we need to do is at the strategic moment and if i can a little, you know, illustrate a second, i always say, for example, tony, you and i have to have dry cleaners were right across the street, and we hate each other, you know we’d love to see each other’s business fail, but if somebody comes into town and wants to regulate its small business in a way that might impact our businesses, we might not drive down together, but we’d end up in the chamber or the board of trade, and we’d be we put aside our differences for a moment because we have a shared interest and that’s the thing that non-profit sector is never embraced, that idea of strategic moment in which we have shared interests well, there are in that election time. Yeah, that while there are coalitions like independent sector that try to bring the try to bring the sector together, especially now, i see that, you know, they’re very active around the deficit reduction and fiscal cliff discussions. So but those air, those air national coalitions and, you know, i think the broader you get, the more i guess, the more general and vague your talking points are in your and your calls for action are i would like to see it on the local level. Mohr yeah, i agree, and that’s why we’re focusing on the local level, you know, eventually we think that, you know, eventually we want to see presidential candidates openly discussed this i’ll be honest with you. I was really shocked that neither governor romney nor president obama and, by the way, the first president who got his first job in a non-profit neither mentioned philanthropy, neither mentioned the non-profits and again, the third biggest employer in america and each talked vigorously about manufacturing, for example, yet we are only percentage points away from employing the same number of people in america is manufacturing. Okay, so let me let’s talk more about some of the the actor calls to action, so so we’d be asking for a dedicated point person for the charity for the community forward is after now, okay, one example and i’m not trying to say by our product as much as we are one breakthrough, i believe idea, but we are hopefully the beginning of many different strategies to get candidates on par with us. Ok, but what other calls to action now? We would be be asking candidates teo to embrace well, i’m a big believer in social enterprise and micro. Credit and you know the idea, for example, it’s one thing to have a really great domestic violence shelter in your town fully funded, well, run, but ultimately those women gotta leave and ultimately, you know, but tragically, many women who come in or have no credit history and oftentimes very difficult time getting a job. So imagine, you know, a flip from the service model and saying, in effect, okay, how can we scream, help them create their own businesses and again think about we’ve raised an entire generation doing service, so i’d like to see a mayor who looks at all the universities in the town and sees, you know, school system bursting with a generation raised doing service who are now in the business school, who might come down and help a domestic violence shelter, develop business plans and demerol might say, i love this idea. So if you develop a a, um micro credit program, the city will match it dollar for dollar and i’m going to let three other partners with us so that every buck of private citizens put in will match in three, two, one let’s get people working again, i think that’s. What’s missing is seeing the non-profit sector is a potential job creator. Okay, do you have another example of ah call to action that we be insisting our candidates do before we’re going to endorse them because they’re they’re pro charity community? Yeah, i’m a big believer a we need great new metrics. I mean, for heaven’s sakes, you know, most cities have know idea you can’t ask a mayor how many non-profits today do you have in your community how much payroll taxes do they pay? How much money do they bring is so in depth analysis is essential, but another thing i’m really interested in is the contract process. I mean, we need mayors and city council members that they in fact, we want to get more of these non-profits of potential do contracts with the city because, again, they they’re motivated to pay a good wage, and they re invest their money back in the community versus making individual profit. But to do that, we have to lower the bar a little bit to help more people in, and we also very much need to expedite the reimbursement process between city and their contractors. So that non-profit organizations don’t go broke waiting to get get paid for services rendered, okay? So there’s a place where the corporate interests and the charity interests are overlapped you bet every everybody has list in that i was i was really impressed. Governor schwarzenegger appointed one of the first governors to appoint a volunteer coordinator on his cabinet, saying, in effect, look, we’ve got, you know, millions of older people but millions of younger people for whom service it’s part of their lifestyle now, and we’ve got a state that very well might have, you know, a natural disaster somewhere in the future. I don’t wanna wait until after the fact to try and get things coordinated let’s have a plan now, and i think that was a very, very intelligent way to look at the human capital that the charity, the charitable sector sector kind of channels volunteerism as a dynamic part of the city’s future of the state future. Now that we’ve identified candidates who have a pro non-profit agenda on there as part of their platform, how can we start to show our support? Well, i think is to get a private citizens you can, you can contribute. You know, i’m a big believer that even though we heard a lot about, you know, the billions a million spent in these campaigns that, you know, down the road, you know, those those the campaign will be more more driven by new media, which is free and pervasive. So i think that, you know, spreading the word about candidates contributing but also getting out there working for him, but what i’m interested again, it is not only backing people who come from the nonprofit sector but actually helping people who are in the sector now realize, you know, maybe you should run, you know, maybe the city, the state needs you, you’ve been a tremendous, tremendous supporter of this community step up and take another another step up on the chain, but again, what i’m trying to say to the non-profit sectors we gotta win, we have to support those men and women, our peers who step out and say, i’m willing to step up and take, you know, take a, you know, a bigger bucket of water on my shoulder for the larger you no benefit of the sector in our community, we need to get behind them. Okay, really, you know, support them in every way we can understood. And there there’s the role of sea forward. So let’s, take a couple minutes, talk about, see forward you you identified, i counted sixty one, endorsed sixty one candidates who had a non-profit friendly platform. Eight of them see forward specifically endorsed. And there were thirty five winners out of those sixty one. Yeah. And in fact, what makes it interesting is we have people throughout the sector nominate people. Look, you know, we’re trying our best here, but, you know, there’s not a whole lot of money in this. I’ll tell you, tony, i mean, it’s not like that, you know, the czechs air flowing in. We’re not competing with any super pac. You’re nowhere. We want teo what we’re saying to the non-profit sectors throughout the country, if you know somebody who’s running, nominate him, put him up on our page, and what we’ll do is we’ll look for those candidates that we think really have a tremendous opportunity, but well, even if we don’t endorse them, we’re at least giving them exposure beyond the small town where they might be running for city council mayor. And we’re saying all the ten point, million, ten point, four million non-profit employees check out this site and do a little shopping, you know, look around and see if you see a candidate, did you think? Wow, you know, that person is again four states away and a little tiny town, but wow, that’s a tremendous opportunity. What a vision i’m going to give him twenty bucks. What the hat? You know, when you’re running for a city council race in a small town, you know, fifty bucks a hundred bucks that that could go a long way, so never underestimate what ten million one dollar bills khun due in the political process in america, to get people who think again understand the role we play, it will be champions, not just for us again don’t don’t don’t mistake what we’re doing is somehow, you know, just trying to preserve the cut of the pie for the nonprofit sector. What we want is intelligent people elected who understand the new civic mathematics of how community thrive and grow. Robert, you had mostly of most of candidates were local from the twenty twelve election cycle, but you did have three. At the national level and and also the governor of washington state among those thirty five winners. Yeah, again, we’re really looking actually the person who was hunting who was nominated, i don’t think our candidate for washington state won the governor’s race, but a way had a pretty good track record of candidates who eventually want some with our support and don’t get me wrong that we just endorse. We just said, xero candidates that we think a really strategic and smart, so it was like it, sam saying, for example, who was the first indian american elected to the state legislature in michigan? You know, he ran the state association, he was the mayor of east lansing prior, and he would also he has also done amazing work promoting social enterprise in the city of detroit. So these are the kind of people we think when that, you know, sam will be out the statehouse really advocating for, you know, again, the economic role that we play in helping a state like michigan, which is behind the eight ball. You know what? A lot of states are really struggling with big deficits, so what we don’t want is people who think, you know, wow, these non-profits air getting off, you know, with a field day they’re you know, they don’t pay taxes and there just, you know, sucking money out of the economy to do good deeds. We want people to understand no, no, no, no, make no mistake, there is no profit without non-profit robert, i’m gonna switch the focus to you personally. What is it that you love about this kind of advocacy and endorsement work? Well, you know, i’m a big believer in no waste, you know, i started the kitchen because i hated seen food being thrown away, and i volunteered one night to serve the poor and saw men and women standing outside in the rain, and i had worked in a business that needed employees, so my bag has always been i hate seeing things that are still have value but aren’t being used to their potential, and i believe the non-profit sector and our vote, our classic examples of a tremendous american asset that are not being utilized, you know, i just came along to the food we throw away and the people we value have tremendous potential, and i think we proved that here at the d c central kitchen, so i’m just following the logic model of don’t throw anything away, don’t waste anything, don’t undervalue anything just because of the traditional way we used it in the past, no profit without non-profit.

My pleasure to bring on scott koegler scott is the editor of non-profit technology news. You can follow him on twitter he’s at scott koegler. Scotty koegler welcome back. Hey, tony, good to talk with my pleasure. We’re talking about computers crash. So you mean hardware is not gonna last forever? Yeah. You know, i have to say that when i was a cia, we’ve spent a lot of time and lots and lots of money on replacements and lifecycle transitions and all that kind of thing that, um, just, you know, you have to do with computer systems. I kind of changed my opinion over time, but it really depends on the on the situation that you’re in. So, um, i guess that’s what we can kind of talk about. Yeah. Okay. Um, well, how has your how is your opinion? Evolved? The used to be that the computers that you used, uh, ran an operating system. And that really hasn’t changed a bit. Still operating systems all the windows variations, there’s, mac stuff and there’s all kinds of one expiry ations. And it used to be that the applications that ran on those operating systems and turn ran on those computers dependent very heavily on the technology itself. In other words, the processor you know how strong how fast, how many bits is the processor, thie amount of memory, the size and speed of the hard drive. All those things were really critical because as a cz we migrated from the nineties into the two thousands of now intothe ten pluses, uh, at application software has always become the larger files more complex required more more horsepower essentially to run them and some of that’s still true. If you’re heavily involved in graphics, video production or audio production, you still have to have all that. But what’s really changed the game is cloud computing. So why has that changed? You might ask. Oh, okay, well, you and i have talked about it, but go ahead. Why has changed? The reason is that you’re really not depending so much on the hardware or the operating system for that matter, you are dependent on the connection. Um, so, um, so if you have a good connection, if you have your applications and your data in the cloud, then really, you can you can use almost anything that will support a browser. So so that that’s that’s where my opinion has changed, however, there are still reasons to change your hardware. And so now that i’ve kind of cleared the air on that talk about okay, well, we still need to change it. Listeners well, and i i appreciate your honesty. Your opinion has evolved. That’s. Very interesting. So there are. So so you think it’s okay now to push the hardware beyond what used to be, i guess, a strict like three or four year replacement timetable again. It depends on your situation. If you are running your your applications in house, if you have a ah constituent management system that that keeps track of your all of your donors and your constituents, your activities and that’s running on a network inside your facility. Okay, then you absolutely do need to pay attention to the age of your equipment. Because again, the applications get more complex that require more horsepower. And not only that systems break hard drives breakdown and computers breakdown. So, you know, there is a kind of to get ahead of the curve of the breakdowns you want to pay a lot of attention to. How old is each piece of equipment? What is? What kind of applications is it running and, you know, what’s the best deal this week of this month that i could get on a replacement unit. Okay, but if you’re if you’re more more of your work is in the cloud, then it may be okay. Toe hold on to hardware longer because, as you said, all you really need is a hardware that will support ah, browser. Exactly. Right. Exactly. Right. Okay. There are a couple things that kind of still go against that. And that is the operating systems themselves. Uh, there’s there’s a surprising number of companies and organizations. They’re still running windows? Yes. On one that’s. A little dangerous, right? That think microsoft dropping dropping support for that. Yeah, even even is uninformed is i’m about technology. I remember seeing videos six or eight months ago that my panels of microsoft engineers explaining two customers. Why? They wouldn’t be supporting x p and why they should move to the next operating system. So why don’t you just give a little explanation is i think there are still a lot of officers running windows expert why is that risky? Um, you know, the departed that it runs and experience has been historically one of the most stable versions of of windows that’s been around, um, and, you know, people argue that back and forth, but the fact is that if you don’t have updates, it’s more vulnerable to being attacked by viruses and hackers, all those nasty things that happened to computer systems, and eventually khun lied to either just the computer system crashing your dying completely, becoming unusable four for the villains stealing your data and interrupt your important work that gets done on that computer and that’s what it means, if microsoft is no longer supporting the xb operating system, then they’re no longer issuing security updates and bug fixes, right? Absolutely right, exactly. Okay, um, if we’re going to be extending the lifetime of hardware, and that probably happens in a lot of officers even where there is locally run applications because because of budget reasons. What are some things we can do to reduce our risk of working with these older machines? The kind of going along with what i just talked about? What windows x p one of the things that can be done is upgrading the operating system to a supported operating system and in some cases, hyre. For instance, moving from expert to windows vista may not be a good thing because it took it, took more hardware, took more horsepower, increased cps, more memory, that kind of thing. And by the time you add your closer cpu and increase the memory in your in your aging computer, you may as well have brought a new computers now faces. You could buy a desktop computer for three, four hundred dollars now. And, uh so replacing parts in an agent computer could cost. You have tio two thirds of that amount. So is it really, really valid too? Spend that kind of money on something that marginal up too up today. One you could actually just get something brand new, and i kind of skipped the whole the whole update. Okay, you know, okay, but if we have to hold on. To equipment longer, back-up is one strategy right for minimizing our risk? Well, yes, certainly back-up is strategy that needs to be managed and done all the time, regardless of the age of the computer, even even on a brand new computer. Of course, you need to have back-up of your data, you need to have contingency plans for disaster and think about all the problems just happened up in the northeast with storms, a lot of those computers and the electricity they ran them and the infrastructure that supported all that just, uh, disappeared in some cases, aaron, certain certain cases became unusable for some period of time. So what? What’s the contingency? What would you do if that happened? Maybe maybe better. In-kind in line with the question is, what did people do when that happened just a few weeks ago? So back-up yes, absolutely. Back it up back your software up back. Your application’s up. But more important, we have a plan for what to do when something that happened and and so these back-up should be automatic, right? We’re past the days when there’s a there’s a manual process involved in backing up. That depends. Certainly. Back-up should be automatic, especially in smaller organizations. We’re where there’s a smaller amounts of data it’s relatively inexpensive, too, to set up on offline back-up for online back-up i guess that connects through the internet to some remote, uh, location where your data is stored and the software that runs those should run automatically on either the server that you’re running your software on or on the individual no computers that are running that because, you know, data could be candy and usually is everywhere could be on the local disc drive can be on a server somewhere, so but yes to your point back-up absolutely needs to be automatic, and even if it is automatic should be tested because, you know, a large percentage of backup systems fail, and we only find that out at the time we try to actually use back-up right? So you should be testing that you can recover data that you know how to do it and that it is recoverable a cz you mentioned, you know, non-profits that were affected by sandy, there were offices that were closed for weeks, i guess a lot of people then saw the value of being in the cloud, if if they weren’t or saudi, certainly, if they were, because then all they needed was ah, web browser, and they could grab that from there could have that from their laptop that was with them or from some, some other some of their source, but then all they needed to do was able to reach the clouds. Exactly, and i’ve talked with folks that essentially used their cell phones, smartphones as a cz computer systems. They’re pretty much very small computers, right? So if you have, uh, a connection through a cell tower, which is a lot of cases during the storm was pretty much the only thing if even that was available, and so you’re able to connect out two applications running on your smartphone, maybe not being conveniently operated as you would your desktop with your laptop, but you could get there, and you could do the least very important things you need to get done. Okay, so reducing risk back-up and testing the backups, the disaster recovery plan, virus protection, malware protection. And you also mentioned some having the right policies in your article, you mentioned having the right policies on on employees. Use of the of the technology right employees are, you know, the best thing that can happen to an organization that can also be some of the most difficult sources of disasters. I mean, people make mistakes, and some some other people, um, do bad things. So, uh, you want to be sure that you have ways to get around or have contingencies, just in case either mistakes or somebody just decide they want to be not so nice and actually damage, er, we’re steal our lead or get rid of data, some other ways. We’re going to take a break. We’re going to take a break, scott koegler stays with us, we’ll keep talking about a computer crash and had a avoid that.

Talking alternative radio twenty four hours a day. All right, scott, for those who do want to put together ah timetable in a plan for their technology changes updates. Well, i obviously well, you start with timing, right? I mean, how do you how do you figure out when your stuff is goingto need to be replaced? Looking forward. Ah, good point. Tony. The first thing to do obviously is to know what you have. So you need to take an inventory of your systems. And when i say an inventory, i mean very specific. You know, what is the what is the product that you have is that the desktop is of the laptop what’s the cpu and what’s the speed of it what’s. The age of when was it purchased? What’s the operating system. All those very specific. Now, the attributes that go to make up a computer and there are there are several pieces of software that will actually go across the network and scan your network and deliver you a, uh, an inventory. Okay? Because that would include that includes all your peripheral, still your printers, right? And exactly servers. Certainly. Uh, do you happen to know any of the names of products that will do that for listeners. I don’t recall them. I actually wasn’t prepared to talk about that, right? That’s something that you want to go through, we can certainly schedule. Well, what do they mean? It’s an important playing it’s? Uh, for one way or another, you need to have a new inventory of what it is they have, and then go ahead and make an evaluation of what parts of that are at risk unnecessarily in terms of breaking but at risk in buy-in affecting your organization or some organizations if they’re running their applications in house, that risk is going to be c p u speed, hard drive viability that amount of memory in the operating system for organizations that are running cloudgood based applications it’s really going to be? What is the one of the operating systems and browsers now? It’s going to be far less critical? Obviously. And once you have that inventory and you’ve got the evaluation of what parts of your inventory are critical, then you need to evaluate basically, you take a guess. What do i think is going to change or or effect the things that we’re doing in our organization? Over? The next one year, two years, three years and from that then you can make a projected estimate of what should be replaced. So it’s kind of a multi step process, not necessarily easy and certainly not an infallible i guess because, you know, you really don’t know what’s going to break and you don’t know what kind of technology is going to come on in the future. Okay, but you’re looking at the oldest stuff first, right? Sure. That’s. The easy part. Last last in first out. Buy new stuff to replace it. Okay. Let’s help listeners out if they wanted to search for these the kind of software they were talking about that will scan your network. Like what? What keywords would you search for in google? I would try network inventory. Okay, good enough for budgeting now. How do you look forward into what the technology is going to cost? Two, three years from now, the the good laws of computer development are that the prices will go down. Capacities will go up. So if you look at what you what your expenses take the piece of equipment that you want to replace today and get a price for that? Just go to the market, you know, go online and find something that is an equivalent to today and start with that number. Because you know that one year from now, two years from now, three years from now, you’ll still be able to spend that amount of money in terms of you know, is there a product available that you could purchase for that amount of money? Okay, cesar, that amount of money in a year’s time, we’ll buy you more capacity. So for one thing, that gives you the ability to take a number and make a budget. Secondly, it kind of future proofs of purchases, so that in a year from now a cz as your requirements for capacity changed, the availability of the equipment will change as well. So i kind of go along the same path, so pick today’s numbers and use them in your budget. Okay. Interesting. I realize i said something incorrect a few minutes ago. I said when you were figuring out what what’s goingto be replaced to use a last in first out. But it should be that’s. That’s wrong. Should be first in first out. Essentially three. Oldest first, so first in first out, right? Oldest first. Okay, we have just a minute left. Scott, what other thoughts you want to leave people with about creating this thiss a short to medium term plan, medium term plan, i would say just get started on it, you know, one of those just like back-up if you keep thinking about it and kind of guessing on how it’s going to work, eventually it will be too late and you’ll never get there. All of a sudden it will be tomorrow, and the disaster is here and you’re not ready. So i would say the same thing with the, uh, with the replacement plan going on planet, even if it’s in perfect and by the way, it will be in perfect. Go ahead and figure out what it should be. Get something scratched on paper or put into the spreadsheet, and you can always add to it and refine it. But the most important thing is to get it in process, get it in place. Get your organization to understand what that what that processes and, uh, you know, get a few minds working on it because chances are that more people thinking about it better than one person thinking about scott koegler is the editor of non-profit technology news, which you’ll find it n p tech news dot com and on twitter he’s at scott koegler scott thank you very much.

We’re talking about work, family balance rachel, welcome. Thank you for having me. It’s a pleasure to have you. Why does the journal feel that a blogger on balance between work and family is necessary? Well, the blogging you’ve named the black has been around for a number of years, and so i actually didn’t start the block. I said it started by some other colleagues before i became a contributor, and the genesis of the bog was that a number of users, both women and men, we’re struggling with these issues in their own lives, and they figured that, you know, they weren’t alone and that many of our readers were dealing with same issues. You many of the most of our readership, though not by all means not all, um, our working parents, although we do have plenty. Readers without children onda also some readers who don’t work outside of the home and our state home parents, but but definitely the bulk of our viewership for working parents who are dealing with, you know, the struggle of how teo work meaning or have meaningful professionals careers, but also raised their families. And are we seeing much difference in thiss in the midst of our recession, in terms of thes thiss balance in the jungle, there is a difference, certainly. Well, first of all, families are just more worried that they’re more worried about their jobs or labbate heads their paychecks if they’re even looking enough to be employed. So you that underlies the struggle, and it adds to the stress that many working parents already feeling. But secondly, um, those who do have jobs are many cases working harder than they’ve ever worked before and that’s because many companies and non-profits are operating a lot more lean lean these days, and you know, they’ve had layoffs or haven’t sold positions, and that means many workers are actually doing the job. So you two or three people and that can increase the workload increased the time spent at work. Or, you know, pulling in time during home time. And so it really does that stress on dh there’s tension there. You feel grateful to have the job, but probably resent may at least frustration and maybe resentment about having to do a couple of jobs. Exactly. Exactly there, you know, certainly that case. People feel less blowing rock the boat and asked for more flexible arrangements are to scale back the work hours. Nobody wants their job and we’re going to talk about howto set some of those boundaries. One of the poll questions that i had for the audience before the show was, is your job comprised of what was two or more jobs before the recession and perfectly split between yes and no fifty percent each way. So yeah, i mean that that because it certainly doesn’t affect everybody here, but i’m not surprised that at least, you know, you feel like they’re doing a lot more and i think in the for-profit sector as well in the audiences. Non-profits but i think we’re seeing that across the across those the two sectors, i just want to remind listeners that we are live tweeting the show. Join the conversation on twitter using the hashtag non-profit radio if you have a question for rachel and we’re also taking calls at eight seven seven for eight xero for one, two, zero, eight, seven, seven for a tow for one two oh ifyou’d like teo, talk to rachel who’s i think your cellphone just rachel, you have to get that call. I hope. No, i’m getting okay. Oh, that was okay. The sort of the conventional wisdom about working for non-profits is that it will be a more regular balance will be more normal work hours. Ah, pay maybe lower, but there will be a better mix between personal and professional. Do you see that by commenters on the blogger and people you’ve interviewed so that’s a really good question? I know i actually know from both professionally from reporting and from the blood, but also even personally, i know a lot of people who have left corporate job, askew said, because they i thought that non-profit world would offer a more friendly, more family friendly environment a few hours for with trade off being being less pay. But the reality in some cases, though not all, can be difficult to be surprising and different. You know, all of all of you working non-profits you guys work hard and and the hours can be long or get their community, we’ll get night for events or for charitable mission work and so it’s, not always the ninety five that some people are expecting when they go when they go into the non-profit world and i think that has been exacerbated talked up. For by the poor economy, just because the the social services for those york until services, he needs air greater. But also, you know, just being short staffed. It means that all of us are working harder, or many of us are working harder. We have to take a break. When we return. Rachel will stay with me. We’re going to talk about howto, establish some of the boundaries, and set that balance for yourself, and also talk a little about rachel’s situation because she is a work at home.

Welcome back, i’m with rachel and the silverman reporter for the wall street journal and contributed to their blogged the juggle we’re talking about work, family balance, one of the other questions that i asked listeners before the show was do you feel you have appropriate boundaries between your work and personal lives? Kind of disappointing on the only forty two percent said yes and all the remainder were no or not sure so i don’t even not sure is not so good. Rachel euro, your work at home. Mom, how did that come about for you? Sure. So i work for many years out of our new york bureau a za reporter. And then my husband actually got a job in austin, texas. And i asked my boss if i have to go after it plainly, you know, saying i love my job and i would it be okay if i moved a dawson with my husband for his job. Would i be ableto work from home? And my boss didn’t even bat an eye. He said yes, and i was so grateful. And this is seven, no, six, six years ago. And i’ve been here ever since and i have two young children who are almost two enormous for and so i work out of the home office with one of my sons is in preschool on the other eyes, still at home with the baby sitter while i work from home so that my situation, what were you thinking the days leading up to asking that big question? What were your feelings about what you might hear? You know, i felt pretty confident that i didn’t really second guess it. My husband had to make a decision quickly for this job offer, and we’re pretty sure that we wanted to move anyhow, and i just sort of told me that the worst thing that he could say would be no and if that happens, you know, i really enjoyed i really love my job, and i would be very upset. Um but you know, that that’s the worst thing that could happen, and then we have to make a decision. But, you know, i also felt that if he said no there’s always room for negotiation and there are ways to do things like a trial period, but it didn’t even come to that, you know, i think one of the big issues and what we can talk about this further is that people kind of get so scared about even asked e-giving they don’t want to appear to be, you know, lazy or they don’t want their bosses and they will be working as hard if they were so they don’t even ask, and i really that’s, you know, you keep only with only one hundred percent sure way tio not get what you want is to not ask for it. And so, you know, i think that it’s it’s really important your bosses that is most in most cases not going just offer work from home. Usually people have tto have to ask for it, so but also just knew that the worst thing would happen would be that, you know, and and i i was prepared for that consequence. So the advice is if you’re if there’s something on your mind about an alternative arrangement or hours or a couple of days a week at home, or maybe just one day we get home, get the courage, find the way and just asked, because i think, don’t you think that if if your work is getting done, and if it continues to get done, most supervisors are going to be amenable, yes, not all almost right, exactly most yes, i think especially now because our technologies just so much better and there’s so many more ways to be connected to be productive without being in an office, you know, that didn’t used to be the case, but when i asked, i mean, this is six, seven years of this before the iphone, you know, blackberries, we’re still kind of not as good as they’re now, and so the technology was kayman is good then, but but now, you know, it’s really, really easy to stay connected to the to the workplace on and in fact, a lot of companies are finding you know, that they’re alive and more distributed workplace. You’re a many employees happier, but also their big cost savings in terms of real estate in technology and energy. No, there. There are a lot of benefits working from home now, so you have two children at home seeing you work every day. Do you think about what the impact will be on them as they grow older? Yes, i actually think about that a lot i grew up with two working parents and my mother for much my child hood worked from home, and i actually you’ll have so many memories of falling falling asleep with sound of her typewriter hail kind of in the background kind of click clacking away, and she was a consultant, often how to write reports, you know, this is kind of the era, even before we’re processors, and you know that that that really impacted me, i sort of just assumed that i would work and, you know, it was just very much a part of my of my life growing up. No, i think that for my children, you know, i hope that i’m a real role model as a working mom, and until very recently, i was actually a part time from the time that my first time was born just a couple months ago, i was a part time, so i was with them, you know, as mom for part of the work day, you probably talked to a lot of people or get comments from out of people for whom they’re not, in the most part, and their bosses aren’t amenable. What? Advice do you have there? Yeah, i mean, that’s a really big issue. And i think that it’s something that will change eventually effective economy improves and people are more willing to vote with their feet and look for other opportunities and more family friendly places. You right now, employers, you know, sadly and a lot of companies do you have the upper hand? Because they know that that workers are just happy toa have a job and many inmates situations, but but i do think that the more people ask and the more people prove in place proved that they can do good work, that this will change. I also think when one judges to ask if you if you can, try it on a trial basis, you know, a week, a month on dh just sort of see how the arrangement were, uh, and then know that if it doesn’t work, think about what the alternative is your job worth keeping if you can’t get that flexibility. And if you decide that it’s, not there, maybe steps you can take short of leaving in the midst of a recession, but they’re always steps you can take to help. Get your way to the exit door and start to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Absolutely. And you can also see if you could work on a contract basis to do just that. Certain projects in order to get that, get that flexibility or see if they’re things you can do well within four point. Like what? Your hours around a little bit, coming a little bit earlier, if you could leave a little bit earlier seeking handle school, pick up, you know, things like that that your boss might be more amenable. Short of working from home. Rachel, i’m a silverman is a reporter for the wall street journal and contributed to their blogged the juggle and we’re talking about the work family balance, i imagine there’s certainly gender issues this’s probably tougher for women than for men to raise at work. What do you here? Well, i think in many cases it’s tougher from men just because, you know, women are scientists, certainly changing, but women their cider you’ve seen more often as you know, the family, the family who razor and this is changing very quickly, but i know men who have tried toe work part time and have found it more, more difficult task for just because there seems to be some stigma. The men seeking alternative arrangements and a lot of companies are becoming, you know, are you are really hurting, you know their workforce toe be gender neutral and, you know, have family leave, be open to both men and women. But i think for many cases, harder for men asked for these rain for and for women. Okay, interesting, more more accepted. I was thinking about the fear among women that they might be mommy tracked and their career hindered. Yes. No, definitely. I think that that’s that’s a fear that holds back many women, but i think that employers are less surprise with a woman. You think that i do think that women certainly are are seen in some time? I think this with men is that fewer men asked for these arrangements. And so there’s less there’s less daddy tracking just because they’re fewer dads historically have asked for part time or for working from home arrangements. So when that when dad do ask, they often feel a little bit, you know, like still a little nervous. Because there aren’t that many other models for that in the work for and do you see more men asking around around a birth now for extra time off? Yes, absolutely actually meeting with friends later today, who is on paternity leave right now. Sixty paternity leave, and so definitely, i think, that, you know, it’s it’s becoming a lot more common. And companies are, you know, are really granting it a lot more often and writing into their hr policies. What about family mean, we don’t have family members so close, so much anymore. So family, the fact that kid’s air more mobile, and that that also impacts what? What were able to arrange for our personal lives? Absolutely, and that’s that’s, a big, big, big assed. You, you know, in the past. It was just much easier or not much exertion of that, but having a family being able to watch your children and you know, if your parents didn’t work here and uncle didn’t work just made finding child care a lot easier if you didn’t have teo really struggled with finding daycare, nannies, etcetera, but, you know, that’s, just not the case. So many family for so many families anymore. I mean, i just personally i live very far away from from my parents and my in laws, and, you know, they’re in opposite ends of the country, and so we just don’t have that family available to us for child care. So, you know, every it’s, always a struggle, but to find stable childcare, he were actually the myth of searching for child care right now for our children. You have your own transition coming up, right? Exactly. Tell us, won’t you share that on, by the way? Thank you. Thank you very much for being willing to share your own personal story. Oh, sure. No, i’m always i’m always happy to talk about it. My my life, you know? But yeah, so my younger son has been home. With the baby sitter and starting a day care in january. But our baby here actually has a new job, and so the next month and a half were without falik hair, who was running in a week and a half and so nowhere were scrambling toe find child care for for a few months, and we’re going to part time childcare after starting in january. And so, you know, it’s something when you don’t have a table, how car can make, uh, both your work and your life very stressful because, you know, it’s, always in the back of your mind, so less listeners think that oh, she’s, a contributor to the jungle she’s got it all figured out. Oh no, no, no that’s one of the things i did contribute to juggle because i’m trying to figure it out. Yeah, i’m always trying to figure it out and after our readers are so helpful in terms of offering their own suggestions and bits and pieces of their own lives. It’s, you know, it’s really, really strong and and warm communion of we were just talking about children moving away from their family, but i see the most recent post by you on the juggle is about the reoccupation of the empty nest kids moving back. So even so, this is not only for young families, but this could easily have implications for people in their fifties and sixties. Absolutely and that that’s interesting because you many, many people start reading the juggle because they’re they’re they’re new to the duggal bait they recently had shot, but we also have a lot of readers with older kids, college age kids, teens and, you know, they’re dealing with they’re dealing with troubles of their own, and especially with the part economy, you know, grown growing children are definitely returning back to the nest on and there’s more financial assistance going. Teo, in your post, you talk about that, so we’re not only juggling work and family, but we might be juggling money as well. Oh, yeah, i mean, money. Yeah, i underlies both the work in the family’s kruckel because you need both to make make it go smoothly. Since i’m sorry, rachel. So i just called you i’m sorry, rachel, since we are talking in good measure about young families. There’s an issue around guardianship that pertains to the book that you wrote the wall street journal complete state planning guide book when we just touched down just in the last minute and a half that we have this guardianship issue for for young families, so are you are. So one of the reasons i wrote the book is that i’m absolutely passionate about planning it, and i know it sounds funny to say passengers out of the inning, not a subject that brings i had a lot of passion, but i really do believe that every single person, especially young families, should have a will. Not only teo doesn’t property, but most importantly, to name a guardian for your young children. And choosing and guardian is so such a tough decision because nobody likes to think about their death, and it can involve awkward conversations with family members about you who you want to choose, a guardian who who you want, who you trust to take care of your children if you’re not able teo but it’s something that i encourage all of you listener’s with children, teo to think about and most appalling, tio dio you make sure that you have a will that that includes the guardianship designations and rachel’s book again is the wall street journal complete estate planning guide book, and you find that on amazon. The last survey question i asked listeners was, would you describe your office as family friendly? And two thirds said either yes or yes, very and only one third said no, andi ah, few people even big, no, unfortunately, that’s not good, but the fact that two thirds is really good and i have to say i’ve been so lucky, my employer, his has really, really been family, family, and i’m so grateful to my employer, but i’ve actually, you know, i’ve actually considered working for a company not recently, but a number of years ago that really, really wasn’t family friendly there flexibility was not at all a part of its charm policies, they didn’t allow people to work from home. They’re a maternity leave was very short and very inflexible. And, you know, i realized that wasn’t a workplace for you, rachel, we have to end there. Thank you very much. Thank you, rachel. I’m a silverman is a reporter for the wall street journal and a contributor to their blawg the juggle after this break. And be tony’s. Take to stay with me.

So thank you very much for asking the question. We’ll get it answered for you, tony’s take to my block this week is the basics of charity registration. What is charity registration? These air the requirements in every state and the district of columbia that you register with state authorities before you solicit donations in that state, you either register or you qualify for an exemption or you don’t solicit there or you can roll the dice and take your chances on being caught. There’s a lot more in on my block at that post this week’s post the basics of charity registration on my block is that m p g a d v dot com, and that is a short tony’s take two for friday, november eleventh, the eleventh day of the eleventh month of the eleventh year i’m with now maria simple, actually maria’s with me. Maria is the prospect finder and she’s an experienced trainer and speaker on prospect research. Her book is panning for gold. Find your best donorsearch prospects now we’re talking about volunteers. Volunteers, visibility maria, welcome back. Hi, tony. Thanks for having me a pleasure to have you back. There is something new on unlinked in. Is that right? For volunteers? Yes. That’s correct. It’s actually been out in september, but i don’t think very many people know about it. And there was a recent new york times article which i think kind of has brought it to the forefront of people’s attention. And that is the topic of adding a section on your profile on lengthen that includes your volunteer experience and causes, and it can be extremely useful for aa number of purposes first and foremost for yourself as an individual and your own personal profile. We’re not talking about the profile of your organisation, but your own personal profile really can make you a very well rounded individual if you can show where you have volunteered. So presumably most of the people on this call today, actually work for a nonprofit organization, but you probably are also volunteering in other capacities as well. So why not list that? Why not list what your volunteer capacity is? Whether it’s a boardmember helping to run a gala, whatever the capacity is, you do have an opportunity now to add that to your linkedin profile, and there is enormous value in volunteering. I know some people use use volunteering to lead to a new job that’s correct and that’s actually one aspect that this article really brought to light in the new york times they were talking about people who are perhaps unemployed in in transition and are looking for a way tio augment their skills toe add back to community and it’s a way teo really boost your resume, if you will, even though you’re not getting paid for it still able tto have a tremendous amount of impact and flexibility with the project that you’re able to do, and you’re demonstrating an interest in the career you’re trying to move to bye bye. Doing it. Doing that work for for free room on a volunteer basis. Yeah, and what was interesting, too, is that they quote in this particular article that in a survey, they found that forty one percent of employers said that they considered volunteer work as important as paid work, and that twenty percent said they made a hiring decision based on volunteer work. So it’s, extremely important that you not only have it on your regular resumes, but also make sure it’s listed there on lengthen because i can guarantee you every single day. Headhunter recruiter hiring manager, hr person is taking a look at your linkedin profile that you want to make sure that you do with those opportunities very well. The article we’re talking about was in the new york times on november first called volunteering rises on the resume november first, new york times that’s eleven one actually another palindrome eleven one eleven. There you go. There you go. What was interesting to is that i was doing a late a little bit of digging around on lengthen itself. And i got back to the press release that lincoln launched on september seventh regarding this new volunteer called experience and causes feels for their profiles, and they say that they surveyed nearly two thousand professionals in the u s and they found that on lee, eighty nine, eighty nine percent of these professionals have personally had experienced volunteering, but on ly forty five percent included that experience on their resume. So there’s definitely a dichotomy there people are not necessarily all including it, yet employers are looking for it. You should be proud. You should be proud of it. Absolutely. And i think from from the non-profit standpoint, it elevates it’s, another avenue for the non-profit to get the word out about they’re just to get their name out there, right? So i would encourage every non-profit listening on this call to encourage your board members, especially your board members, to add this section to their own lincoln profiles and indicate that they are serving as a boardmember for your organization, because it’s going to again give greater visibility to your organisation and its great maria. Is this something that people who have an individual profile have to select for that volunteer section to appear? Or does it appear automatically in you’re in the template and then you just fill it in? So what? What they need to do is when you’re looking at your linkedin profile, you know how you have that first shaded box before you start getting to the summary section and all of that just underneath that shaded box that you have at the top, there is a link that you click on called ad sections, so you click on the ads, sections hyperlink then you select volunteer experience and causes, and then you click add two profile button, and then you fill out the applicability fields. Excellent. Thank you for that, that kind of detail and for the non-profits that you’re saying greater visibility, that’s because people will find the people who have your non-profit listed when they’re searching the non-profit name, right? So what’s gonna happen is right that you’re non-profit then is going to be linked to that person as well, so they’re able to then learn a little bit more about your organization simply from clicking through on that profile. And how about from a prospect research perspective now for people at the chair at a charity wanting to do research on the people who they know or would like to know? So from from a prospect researchers perspective it’s fantastic, so fine researching an individual certainly length in is one place that i go to to do my research it’s one of the tools in my toolbox, so if i can see not only their education, their work experience and so forth, if they have left, they’re where they are interested in volunteering, where they’re currently volunteering, and by the way, it’s just like a resume, i mean, you have, you know, from what year to the present date face from two thousand to present to your volunteering at x y z organization and there’s also an opportunity to list causes that you care about. So if you’re if you’re an animal welfare non-profit and you see on somebody’s linked in profile that the on ly causes they care about are perhaps education and children, then you know, you might have been a little bit more digging to do to see if there’s really going to be a connection for your organization. Another reason that individuals may want to add this, and this is goes into the non-profits encouraging individuals, teo, add this section, as you suggested boardmember sze is that if it can be used in broadening skills in showing that you’re a, you’re a person beyond just your work, but you have skills outside you work and you’re exercising those in volunteering exactly. Exactly. So, you know, i think a lot of people find that linked in is almost because it’s a business networking tool, it doesn’t really allow too much of your personal side to come through, and i think this is really an opportunity for people to allow that to come through yet in a very professional format. Yes, bring your personal side toe life in lincoln, and i know that that times article also pointed to people using volunteerism when they are when they’re not currently working, which a lot of people aren’t in the recession, but it shows that you are keeping busy and you’re keeping informed about your your marketplace, right? I think the article even goes on to say something along the lines of you’re not just sitting on the couch, right? Also all these reasons that individuals should be promoting their own volunteerism and that charities should be encouraging people who are close to the organization to do that, would you, would you include? Yeah, i mean, it doesn’t have to be a boardmember right that you’re inducing or encouraging. Teo list your organization no, not at all. I mean, i can see organizations like literacy volunteers, for example, think of the the bank of volunteers that it takes to run an organization like that. Why not make sure that those people all have your organization listed as a place where they volunteer their time? So, yes, it is extremely important to have that on there there are sites on the web to that will connect volunteers and non for not-for-profits i no one is go volunteer, which is spelled without the two e’s in the word. Volunteers just spell the word volunteer without those dot com catch a fire is another one. So there are sites that will connect non-profits with volunteers if individuals don’t currently have ah non-profit to volunteer for that’s. Correct. So there may be something right in your own backyard right in your own city where your expertise is really needed. And this gives you an opportunity to extend your expertise to the volunteers that desperately needed. And so there are definitely sites online that will match. And the non-profit request specific request for types of jobs. Shall we say that they’re looking to have by a volunteer? So, as i mentioned, catch a fire dot com is one go volunteer dot com spelled without the easing volunteer volunteermatch is another one. There’s also a rising micro volunteering and the and the times article brings this out idealware research too. You can’t just volunteer for a few minutes, apparently so i have not done something like that. But i did see that in the article as well, which i think is really very interesting is that there are some very sure, very short term beyond for terms with yeah, ten minutes is what one of them sparked is one site for micro volunteering. Maria, we have to leave it there. I want to thank you very much. You’re very welcome, tony. Thanks for having me always. My pleasure, maria simple is the prospect finder.

We’re here, he’s joining me to talk about the chapter’s upcoming conference next week. National philanthropy day on wednesday, november sixteenth. Joe welcome. Thanks for being on the show. National philanthropy day. That’s, that’s. Pretty ambitious. You didn’t just pick westchester or new york state or even mid atlantic philanthropy day? No. Well, a national finds every day is, uh, national day. November fifteen is the actual day of the rial holiday, so to speak, that was established by the then national society of fund-raising executives. But now thie association of fund-raising professionals and it’d surely a national event chapters across the country to celebrate the day with various conferences and meetings, awards, ceremonies. And even in our region, we have new york city is running up is running a, uh an event. But our event in westchester is very much on educational and networking opportunity. And this is your first annual is that right? This is our first full day conference. The chapter is relatively new. We were established in april of two. Thousand ten and we’ve been running breakfast meetings, networking an educational programming since then, till now. But this is our first national or first full day conference and is a real robust program that is a fantastic educational value in the region. All right, so what, tio, what kinds of people are you expecting to come? It ranges anywhere from the boardmember or volunteer uh, on to the administrative assistant and development area, or somebody who is looking to transition into the non-profit area that is a big need that we are seeing that we’re fulfilling as a chapter, especially at our breakfast meetings. We have a lot of phone calls of people i’m looking to get into the non-profit field, i don’t know where they get started. Um, can you tell me about that? And they’re mentoring i actually had to phone calls yesterday, uh, that war of eh spinoff from a conversation with the conference, two more of a mentoring and i’m in a life transition and i’m looking to get into the non-profit field and change. I’ve been a success, i’ve downsized and now i wanna give back and figure out how i can work the non-profit arena and all those things fit into the type of people that come to our organization. We have a lot of people from charities what’s very unique about what we’ve done with our chatter is so many non-profit organizations or associations rely heavily on the for-profit sector cars, vendors and partners latto bulk up there, their membership with we’re very focused on the charity specific. I would imagine that of our attendees to this conference, about ninety five percent of them actually work for charities and not for, uh, paper or print sales organisation that we do have, we will have a robust sponsorship in exhibitor area, but, uh, the number of people are coming are definitely got their hands on fund-raising every single day, joe, when you get those calls about from people who want to make the transition into non-profits then you should refer them to today’s show because the last segment i know you heard part of it, you were on the phone waiting was about volunteering and using volunteering to move from a for-profit tio not for-profit job? Absolutely especially in that transition time. Then when i heard you were talking teo simple, who happens to be a speaker at our conference next week. Um, about not being on the couch on showing that you’re actually working when you’re not working. Nobody ever said that you had to work. That working for money is the only way that you could be working. So who are the keynote speakers that we can look forward to next wednesday? We have, ah, great program. Our keynote speakers. Uh, we have a morning keynote of john hicks from j geever talking about why ethics matters to me a lot of case stories, as you probably know, a f p is very much focused on the piece of the pie.
