For System Administrators for Non-profit Organizations who would like to bounce ideas off others.

The KW Non-Profit System Administrators group (also known as NetSquared Kitchener-Waterloo) is a group for sysadmins of nonprofit organizations. Nonprofits have different technical and social constraints on IT than many other types of organizations (lower pay, low budgets, dependence on free/cheap resources...)

We hold monthly meetings, currently held on the second non-holiday Monday of the month. Meetings consist of discussions about a particular themes.

Meetings begin at 7pm. Future meeting locations have not yet been determined.

Keeping in Touch

Upcoming meetings are announced here, on the mailing list, on the blog, and on Meetup.com. You only need to subscribe to one:

Is your Non-Profit an educational organization? As its main function? Or is teaching one of many services you offer? What do you teach? How do you teach it? Do you have classrooms? With computers? What software do you use for teaching in the classroom? Do you have online courses? What online software do you use online? How do you establish your curriculum? How do you perform evaluations? How do you track student progress? Do you work with other educational institutions? Other certifying agencies? What constraints to they impose on your teaching programs?

We'll have a demonstration of Moodle by Marc Paré and perhaps a representative from KW's Desire To Learn. And, of course, we'll have a Round Table discussion on how each of us are managing our organizations education needs.
