The Foundation Administrators Network (FAN) creates a supportive environment for sharing knowledge and resources, testing ideas with peers, and strengthening professional skills.  At the next FAN meeting, we will convene a peer-to-peer discussion on lessons learned in making technology related decisions. 
Administrative professionals routinely intersect with their organization’s technology infrastructure.  Although our organizational needs, resources, and systems vary, there’s much to learn from colleagues about how we tackle the decision-making process.  What are the criteria you put together to make IT decisions? What decision making process has or hasn’t worked for your organization? 
We will use two topics - grants management systems and cloud computing - as case studies to help frame the conversation.  We look forward to a lively discussion among FAN members about lessons you’ve learned through successful and challenging technology projects.  All are encouraged to share their professional knowledge and experiences.
Reminder: As always, creating a confidential space at network meetings is very important.  Please do not share specific details from the meetings with individuals outside the network.
This Program is "Completely Private."
