PDXTech4Good / Portland Net Wednesday Wednesday, July 9 at 6:00 PM Please note: We're meeting at the headquarters of Idealist.org downtown — we've met at Idealist Consulting before on the east side, so we don't want you to get confused! Although we usually meet the first Wednesday of every month, because of the holiday week in July this event is happening on the second Wednesday. Join us to learn about community-building classifieds Does your community use groups on Facebook, Google, and LinkedIn? Are they frustrated by useful information getting lost in a stream of status updates and baby photos? Are they burnt out on email chains and listservs with irrelevant content? Are they looking for a place to share resources beyond just the professional? Details: http://www.meetup.com/pdxtech4good-nonprofit-activist-tech/events/179722012/

Your organization is probably already using the Internet to support and involve volunteers in some way. But could you do more? *Jayne Cravens*'s presentation on virtual volunteering will help you identify even more tasks that volunteers would love to take on for your organization. She will review why it's worth your time to develop microtasks and involve online volunteers in short-term tasks. While the Idealist headquarters is in New York, it also has an office in Portland and is where all of its technology operations are based. *Ami Dar* is excited to share an overview and history of Idealist and how Idealist is helping people take one (or more!) good next steps to closing the gap between intention and action to make the world a better place. Presenters Jayne Cravens, TechSoup: Jayne Cravens is an internationally-recognized trainer, researcher and consultant. She is a pioneer regarding the research and practice of virtual volunteering, and she is a veteran manager of various local and international initiatives.

She is currently based near Portland, Oregon in the USA. Ami Dar, Idealist.org: Ami is the founder and executive director of Idealist.
