If your voter work made you think you needed to dig into your membership database or technology planning process, check out PTP's Community Organizing and Technology Institute on Databases and Technology Assessment and Planning:
Registration is now open for PTP's Training on Databases and Technology Assessment and Planning taking place April 27-29, 2009 in Minneapolis, MN.
If your organization is looking to improve its database, this is the program to dig in and find out what PTP has learned from the best practices in the field.
Our Database, Assessment, and Planning COaTI (Community Organizing and Technology Institute) is designed for organizers who want to build up their database skills, develop a better understanding of what databases can and can't do, and deepen their understanding of how a specific technology fits into a broader vision for your organization and its technology use. This COaTI features a combination of large group, small group, and hands-on work. While we will provide computers for the training, participants are encouraged to bring a laptop and a copy of your organization's database.
