Hey, uh, maybe you haven’t heard, but Philly Tech Week presented by Comcast is almost here.
You can expect a ton of impact-tinged events for the Generocity crowd, including our own Tech in the Commons bootcamp series teaching digital engagement strategies to nonprofit pros.
But the main event will be Introduced by Technical.ly, a new conference for change makers featuring demos, biz connections and impressive speakers such as Obama’s former social secretary, Deesha Dyer, and La Cololmbe founder Todd Carmichael.
And the best part is that Generocity is curating the civic- and access-focused Impact track, which means you can expect a high-level look at accessibility, education, diversity and more.
Another bit of news you might have picked up in the past few months: Generocity launched membership as a way for our readers to symbolically and fiscally support our social impact reporting and community building. In exchange, we promised they’d get shoutouts, access to special events and extra attention from our team.
Along with Technical.ly Philly, we’re making good on that promise with this neat #PTW18 perk: If you become a Generocity member by Thursday, April 26, at 11:59 p.m., you will be entered into a drawing for a free ticket to Introduced. Yeah, that’s a $125 value — way less than the $10 you’ll pay for our monthly membership.

Five names will be chosen at random — and existing members can get in on the action as well. If you’re an existing member who wants to be included in our Introduced promotion, please email our marketing head, Jeanette Lloyd, at email@example.com by April 26.-30-
