Abila + Aptify + YourMembership: Welcome to CommunityBrands!

 

 

On Tuesday, June 13th, 2017, from 2:00PM to 3:00PM ET, we will present a free webinar:

 

Abila + Aptify + YourMembership

Welcome to CommunityBrands!

 

Abila is a popular fund accounting financial management software system used by many nonprofits and associations.

 

In early April 2017 Abila, Aptify and YourMembership joined to create a unified family of not-for-profit solutions under the new name CommunityBrands.  NimbleUser was later added to the family of CommunityBrands. 

 

Since these events were announced, we have received an outpouring of inquiries from the Abila community to help them understand what this may mean for them as an Abila user or prospective user.  There was also a desire to become better educated on YourMembership and the other CommunityBrands solutions, because of the overlap in many of the feature sets.  This conversation will be presented over two webinars, the first focusing on Abila, and the next on YourMembership.

 

Who should attend:

Existing or prospective Abila users as well as existing YourMembership users who want to learn more about Abila and what it has to offer to your organization.  

 

Please join us on Tuesday, June 13th from 2:00PM – 3:00PM ET when an expert panel will discuss these events, solutions, industry insights and what you can do to mitigate risks and benefit from new opportunities presented by this merger.

The Mango platform is a complete mHealth surveillance, monitoring, and evaluation solution – scalable to any size, flexible to suit any operation, and fully customizable with its modular architecture. The platform is designed to operate sustainably in any environment, even when the available communications services and infrastructure is limited or unreliable – what we call a low resource area.

Join Andrew Wyborn, Managing Director at Greenmash, as he and his team discuss and demonstrate how Mango has provided mHealth solutions for its clients.

 

(This is a co-presentation of both the Connecting The Information Dots and the DHIS2 For INGOS webinar series)

On Thursday, January 12th from 11:30AM to 12:30PM ET, we will present a webinar:

 

Who Wants a Free Puppy!

(The true cost of FREE)

Nothing is free. You pay for it with money and/or with time. Free puppies require both, just like open source/free license software. If everything isn’t clear up front, you will find yourself needing to defend all the time you’ve spent on your no-cost project.

 

Marc Baizman, popular raconteur and Customer Success Director at Salesforce.org, gives us his humorous spin (based on lots of experience) on accepting, training, grooming, and managing a free puppy. He is joined by Zachary Tapp, IT Director at Cradles To Crayons.

 

This is the perfect webinar to share with folks at your organization who can’t/won’t understand why open source, free license, and other seemingly low-cost solutions don’t always beat custom/commercial solutions. So, invite them to join you for our webinar!

 

(This is a co-presentation of both the Connecting The Information Dots and the DHIS2 For INGOS webinar series)

 

 

 

Panelists:

Marc Baizman has been involved with nonprofits and technology for the past 12 years, and has gone from being “the tech guy” hooking up Ethernet cables under desks at a small nonprofit to running a solo technology consulting practice focused on moving organizations to the cloud using Salesforce, Box.com, and Google Apps. He is delighted to be at the Salesforce Foundation, and Customer Success is in his blood.

Zachery Tapp is an innovative and motivated problem-solver with an eye for the big picture. As a technology enthusiast with a comprehensive understanding of many industry leading business solutions, he has a solid record of success with project management, developing, and implementing technology and business systems. Currently, he is the Director of IT at Cradles To Crayons, a Boston-based nonprofit that provides children from birth through age 12, living in homeless or low-income situations, with the essential items they need to thrive – at home, at school and at play.

On Thursday, January 19th, 2017 from 11:30AM to 12:30PM ET, we will present a free webinar:

 

DHIS2 Symposium 2017 Overview

The DHIS 2 Symposium is an annual event that brings DHIS 2 implementers, and M&E and technical experts together to learn from a wide range of DHIS 2 implementation projects.  

 

As we enter the 3rd year of the Symposium, DHIS 2 adoption continues to expand exponentially.  Implementing partners are now faced with multi-instance environments from the National HMIS instance to Donor and Partner instances.  This year, we’ll explore how various DHIS implementers are dealing with complex issues of data exchange and discuss how we can more easily facilitate this exchange through system interoperability.  We will also hear about innovative usage of data either through in-built features or through BI tools. Developers from the University of Oslo will share updates on the DHIS 2 roadmap and talk about the University’s on-going capacity building efforts.  

 

If you haven’t attended the symposium previously, or you want to hear more about this year’s agenda, join us for a casual discussion about the topics and speakers and answer any questions about this year’s event. 

 

 

Panelists & Moderators:

Nicola Hobby is the Director of Service Delivery at BAO Systems and the organizing chair of the DHIS 2 Symposium.  Since 2012, Nicola has lead institutional-wide DHIS 2 deployment projects at multiple international public health non-profits.

On Thursday, February 9th, 2017 from 11:30AM to 12:30PM ET, we will present a free webinar:

 

Am I Reaching the Poor? 

Measuring Equity with DHIS2

Although many development programs actively target the poor, actually measuring how well we are doing this can often be challenging.  Metrics for Management (M4M) has just released a DHIS2 version of its popular EquityTool, a set of simplified questionnaires to help NGOs estimate the wealth distribution of their clients, and ultimately understand how effectively they are reaching the poor (see http://www.equitytool.org)

 

In this webinar, we will provide an overview of the EquityTool, give a brief demonstration of how quickly and easily the EquityTool questionnaires and indicators can be installed in your own DHIS2 instance, and explore how you can then use them to measure equity and make data-driven decisions in your programs.

 

Panelists:

Nirali Chakraborty is the Director of Research and Technical Assistance at Metrics for Management and leads M4M’s research and technical assistance activities. She formerly oversaw the quality and dissemination of Population Services International’s reproductive health related research internationally. Nirali also previously worked as a consultant for the World Bank and Broad Branch Associates, specializing in health systems and performance based financing, and has expertise in quantitative research methods. Nirali has conducted research in, and published articles on, social franchising, health equity, health workforce performance and maternal health. She is fluent in English and French, and proficient in 3 Indian sub-continent languages, Gujarati, Hindi and Bengali.  Nirali received her PhD in International Health, with a concentration in Health Systems, from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.

 

Samuel Johnson is a freelance consultant at Qebo Ltd who advises iNGOs on the design and roll-out of information systems.  His previous positions include global Head of Management Information Systems for Marie Stopes International, M&E Advisor to the Swaziland Ministry of Health, and a range of senior management roles in UK hospitals.  As well as extensive senior management experience in the iNGO and government sectors, Sam has a deep technical understanding of information systems, with particular specializations in DHIS2, business intelligence solutions and electronic client records.  Sam has an MSc Development Management from the London School of Economics.

Kenzo Fry is a consultant at Tebiro Ltd specializing in poverty measurement, costing and impact modelling. He previously ran the Impact Analysis team at Marie Stopes International, which is responsible for designing the organization’s performance metrics, impact modelling, and overseeing global reporting such as MSI’s Global Impact Report. He also has extensive field experience running surveys and studies for public health programs in Indonesia. Kenzo has an MSc in Public Health from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.
