Workshop Offers Information on Technology Planning,
Funding & Resources for Non-Profit Groups, May 22

WESTFIELD, NJ – Have you ever wondered what is “technology planning” and why do non-profit groups need it? Marion Conway of Marion Conway Consulting will answer these questions at a workshop on Tuesday, May 22, from 5:30 to 9:00 p.m., at the Westfield Community Room, 425 East Broad Street, Westfield, NJ 07090.

Sponsored by the Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders and the Office of Cultural and Heritage Affairs in the Department of Economic Development, this workshop will be invaluable for any non-profit organization to attend. It will get you started with knowing what you should be looking for and where to look for help and information.

“This program will provide an overview for non-techies seeking to understand and use the latest tools and strategies to advance their organization’s mission,” said Freeholder Chairwoman Bette Jane Kowalski, liaison to the Union County Cultural and Heritage Programs Advisory Board.

This event is funded in part by a grant from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts, Department of State, a Partner Agency of the National Endowment for the Arts, and the New Jersey Historical Commission, a division of Cultural Affairs in the Department of State.
