  Program:  Distributing the Future: the hows, whys
            and benefits of being a tech volunteer

  Speaker:  Sean Dague
  About the topic:
  Sean Dague will be sharing his experiences stepping into the 
role of technology volunteer for the Poughkeepsie Farm Project. 
Over the last 3 years he's helped that organization launch a new 
Drupal based website, streamline communication based on the new 
website, and is in the process of simplifying and consolodating 
internal information systems around CiviCRM.

  This talk will be about that journey, lots of considerations 
made along the way, and what it means to give back at a level 
that completely transforms a non-profit organization.
