Toronto Net Tuesday Recap: Project Management in the Cloud
By: Tierney Smith, Community Manager at TechSoup Canada
In a broad sense, project management is a part of many roles in a nonprofit - your job title doesn’t need to have “Project Manager” in it to need these skills. Whether you have to coordinate content to go on your website, organize fundraising events, schedule programs & services or manage volunteers, the basics of project management apply. To be successful you will have to break a big task down into smaller tasks, manage resources and make sure all the work gets done on time.

Google Apps Tips: Embedding Google Docs in Google Sites
We are currently in the midst of our Technology Planning for Nonprofits series, and last month (April) our focus was on Collaboration & Productivity: spend time on what matters. So far we've hosted a Toronto Net Tuesday where we heard about the experiences of Timeraiser and Charity Village, and we wrote an article about SharePoint 2010, a popular collaboration tool to consider.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Google has just announced that on May 10, 2011 they are reducing the number of users available on their free version of Google Apps from 50 users to 10 users. If you are at all thinking about Google Apps, I recommend signing up now before the limit is reduced. While it is likely that charities will be eligible for a Google for Nonprofits discount in the future, (a) you may still have to pay, though it will be discounted and (b) this program may never be available for Canadian nonprofits that aren't charities.
