Tech Networks of Boston (also known as TNB) is pleased to invite local employees of nonprofit organizations to a Roundtable session on database management with Nicole Shiner of United Way of Massachusetts Bay/Merrimack Valley and Shane Culliton of Codman Square Neighborhood Development Corporation.
This session is for you if your situation can be described in this way:
“I’m new to a nonprofit organization, and now the database responsibility falls to me. Help!”
or in this way:
“My predecessor just left this nonprofit organization, and now the database responsibility falls to me. Help!”
Here’s what Nicole and Shane say about this session:
“This discussion will go over a process of beginning to understand how your current database works and if the data collected is the right data to track your org’s progress toward desired outcomes. We will start with first understanding what you want your system to collect, moving into how it is aligned with your organization’s data needs and how that aligns with what data is currently collected and what changes need to be made. Once armed with any necessary changes, we can then discuss ways to present your findings and build your case for data collection change.”
Here’s a little bit about Nicole:
Nicole Shiner joined the United Way of Massachusetts Bay in 2004, and is now the operations manager for community impact. In this role, Nicole’s primary responsibility is managing and maintaining data about United Way investments in agencies and the outputs and outcomes associated with those investments.
Nicole comes to the United Way with a background as a paralegal from Washington State and numerous awards for outstanding Customer Service.
Here’s a little bit about Shane:
Shane Culliton joined Codman Square Neighborhood Development Corporation in April of 2014 as their Systems and Data Manager. Over the last year, he has been guiding the program staff through the processes of pertinent data capture, analysis, and impact measurement.

He holds an undergraduate degree in International Affairs from Northern Arizona University, and an MBA from Webster University.
1) In keeping with the spirit of the TNB Roundtable series, this session will NOT be a sales pitch for any product or service. It will be a professional development opportunity for nonprofit professionals who want to learn with and from their peers in other organizations.
2) This session is for employees of nonprofit organizations. It is not designed to meet the needs of vendors, volunteers, students, consultants, job-seekers, and others.
3) Priority in registration will be given to those who are employed by nonprofit organizations that hold full membership in the Massachusetts Nonprofit Network.
4) Participation in this session is free of charge for nonprofit professionals. However, you must have a confirmed reservation in order to attend.
5) If this session is booked to capacity by the time you seek to register for it, please go ahead and put yourself on the waiting list. We have a good track record of finding seats for nonprofit professionals on the waiting list.
We hope that you can join us for a vigorous and informative conversation!
