Meeting Description:

The technology planning process can be overwhelming, especially for those without any technical background. Where do you start? What are your priorities? How do you fund them? Join Karen Graham, Idealware's Executive Director to learn about how organizations like you can easily start their technology plans today! Ann Puckett of the Grand Rapids Community Foundation will also join to share her experience with technology planning.
