Your Nonprofit Resource on the Fritz

We apologize. Our error has frustrated people who have tried to attend our weekly free webinars. People have clicked the “Attend” buttons on our website, found our Webex page, but then have not been able to join the webinars. Please forgive us. Here’s the short story:

Tweaking to Provide Better Nonprofit Resources

We used Webex when we started our free webinar series and we put in a lot of time and energy trying to use it in ways that it was never intended. Once we got a webinar underway, things generally went smoothly. But the things Webex can’t do finally convinced us we needed to use a different service.

We tried MeetingBurner and it works fine. Plus, it offers features that you can get in Webex only if you hire a programmer or rent additional services from other companies. We decided to switch and we set up our webinars in MeetingBurner. Unfortunately, we had already scheduled several of those webinars in Webex and pointed our Attend buttons to them. It never occurred to us to point the buttons at MeetingBurner after we switched! The webinars took place, but our buttons sent people to the wrong service.

Only after this week’s webinar did we realize the error. Coincidentally, we were adding new webinars to take us into May. Oh, and we agreed to call our free webinar series, Nonprofit Tune-ups.

We’ve Scheduled More Nonprofit Tune-ups

Please have a look at upcoming webinars. You’ll find new titles and, when you decide to attend, clicking an Attend button will take you to our registration page in Eventbrite. Once you register, we’ll send an email explaining how to log in when the webinar begins.

Again: we apologize for the aggravation and we hope you’ll join us at upcoming Nonprofit Tune-ups. Also, please visit the Past Webinars page in our Resources section to find the webinars you missed. You should be able to stream them from our website or download them to review even when you’re offline.
