Today & Tomorrow Are Your Last Chances To Be A #20NTC Influencer


Tomorrow, Friday 8/30/2019, is the deadline for your chance to have a quantifiable impact on which sessions make it into the 2020 Nonprofit Technology Conference (#20NTC). 60 percent of decision-making juice comes from individual user votes so don’t think this is some sort of “we value your opinion until it comes time to make the decision” sort of thing.

On the contrary, one of #20NTC’s most unique qualities is facilitating registered user favoriting for sessions they want (and need) to see at the conference. We’re not talking suggested topics, rather, the full list of submitted proposals.

If you’re a NTC regular, you probably notice the change from “voting” to “favoring” and by and large, that’s most a nomenclature level adjustment. They published this terrific overview of those changes if you’re curious to learn more.

There are five sessions from two ArtsHackers among the proposals for consideration and we need your support in the form of marking them as your favorites. You will need a registered user account to vote but the good news is registration is free and very fast.

Just select the “Login/Signup” button in the right sidebar, fill out a few form fields, and you’re all set. And if you aren’t a full member, we strongly recommend joining.

Web Accessibility Through Content Management

Submitted by Drew McManus

If web accessibility isn’t already on your radar, it should be. While many of the accessibility standards will include items you’ll never see, such as modifications and updates to the code your websites run on, there are several items that must be addressed on the content management level. This session will focus on the items content managers are responsible for maintaining:

  • Color Contrast
  • Using Headers The Right Way
  • Image tagging
  • Aria labels: what they are and where to use them.
