Below is Britt Bravo’s post to the NetSquared community announcing my new post as the NetSquared Community Builder.  If you don’t already know Britt, you should!  Her blog and website are below – check them out!

Welcome New Net2 Community Builder Amy Sample Ward!

I’m thrilled to announce that Amy Sample Ward is the new NetSquared Community Builder! You can contact her at

Many of you are familiar with Amy’s great work through her NetSquared Blog, her personal blog, Amy Sample Ward’s Version of NPTech, and as the Organizer of the Portland, OR Net Tuesday. Amy recently moved to the UK, where she will be starting a Net Tuesday London.

Here’s a little more about the fabulous Amy:

Amy Sample Ward is dedicated to supporting and educating nonprofits and the progressive social change sector about evolving technologies that cultivate and engage communities. Her passion is in connecting nonprofits with new media technologies, watching the field of nptech evolve, and having conversations about where we can go next while still getting everyone on board with what we have already.

She has worked both in private philanthropy and advocacy nonprofit
organizations, with job responsibilities that include communications,
technology, information, organizational learning, and more—Amy has
felt firsthand the weight of too many hats on staff in small
nonprofits and is excited to help organizations leverage the social
web to make reaching goals and attaining visions more efficient.

After three years as NetSquared’s Community Builder, I’m thrilled to be passing the reins into Amy’s capable hands. I’ll be moving on to other projects, but will still be blogging once in a while for NetSquared. You can stay in touch in a number of ways:
Big Vision Consulting
Have Fun * Do Good
Big Vision Podcast
Changeblogger Network

Thanks for a life-changing 3 years!

I’m thrilled to be taking on this new role and excited for the learning opportunities, conversations, and connections I can both be a part of and help facilitate within the nptech community.  Let me know if you have any ideas, questions, requests or other comments!

Building Community with NetSquared!
