Data Basics with CT Data Collaborative: CANCELLED
10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Note: This event has been cancelled. Please check our calendar for future offerings from CT Data Collaborative.

Data Basics 

Data Experience Level: Basic

Organizations are moving toward data-driven decision-making. Your organization may be one of them - and yet, you may not know how to ensure the data you use or generate is of high-quality, how to evaluate the quality of secondary data sources you can use, or how to understand some of the data that is being presented to you. 

In Data Basics you will learn:

  • What “data literacy” is, and why it is important for making good decisions.
  • The three primary elements you need to understand in order to better read, communicate, and use data.
  • How to more confidently evaluate the data others present to you.

This is an introductory workshop that will provide you with skills you can apply to improve your own ability to read, communicate, and use data. Participants will come away with a greater understanding of data collection and analysis and a more critical eye towards data encountered in everyday life. 

This program is free and open to the public, but registration is required. Register today at ctdata.org/academy or by calling (860) 447-1411x5.
-------------------------------------
CT Data Academy offerings include Intro to Survey Design, Data Basics, Data Storytelling, Data Bootcamp and Data Clinics, all held at locations across the state. Additional information, an upcoming course calendar, and access to more than 200 public datasets, is available at ctdata.org.

Book Talk: Charles McNair
5:00 PM - 6:30 PM

Charles McNair, author of Soldiers of a Foreign War, joins us to discuss his novel. 

From Footlocker.com "Soldiers of a Foreign War" presents the Vietnam War in all its conflicted complexity. It is told from the enlisted soldiers' perspective and deals with the American and Vietnamese's, North and South, all teenagers, experiences as they leave their families and enter their countries' respective armies.

About the author: Charles McNair was born in San Diego, California, and enlisted in the medical corps when he was 19, after one year of college. He served in the 45th Surgical Hospital in Tay Ninh which was about 65 miles northwest of Saigon, 6 miles from the Cambodian border in War Zone C, 6/69-6/70. This was an area of nearly continuous warfare, including the Cambodian invasion of 5/70. After discharge, McNair returned to college at UC Riverside, and then to medical school at UC San Francisco. He came to Connecticut for residency in internal medicine and practiced for 35 years in Woodbury. He has been married for 45 years and has three children, and two grandchildren. McNair began the book in December of 1971, and completed it in June 2015. It is available on Amazon.

Radio Rage Revival
2:30 PM - 4:00 PM

RADIO RAGE REVIVAL “Radio Rage” is a dark stab at hate radio talk shows, and the disturbing effect they have on gullible listeners all too eager to drink in every word they’re being served. It was written and filmed in 2004, made a coast-to-coast trek in film festivals and cinemas across the country, and was deemed both “visionary and prophetic” by pundits and the public. It is being shown again now in 2019 because its theme is even more relevant today. It tracks the odyssey of a man’s journey to work and back while under the verbal siege of relentlessly ranting radio commentators. “Radio Rage” was written by Nicholas Checker, produced under Nightshade Productions, directed by SJ Williams & Becca Atkins, filmed by Bill Hamell … and features Dean Festa, Kevin McMahon, Greg Bliven and Sam Bliven, Kate Downie, Jake Kaeser, and Bill Hossack, with music by Darin Keech and his Band of Humans. It will be screened in the spacious downstairs Community Room of the New London Public Library (top of State Street, New London), Saturday, November 9th, 2:30 PM. Admission is free, with free refreshments for a reception afterwards. The film runs roughly 25 minutes. Further info, 860-444-8711.

Legal Basics for Connecticut Nonprofits
10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Scrutiny of nonprofits has never been more intense than it is right now.  Nonprofit leaders – both senior staff and the members of the board – need to be familiar with the many state and federal rules that govern nonprofit, tax-exempt organizations to make sure their organization avoids any mis-steps.  Join us for this important two-hour workshop to learn about the fundamentals of nonprofit law and their application to your organization.  We’ll answer these questions and more: 

  • What are the key state and federal rules that apply to our nonprofit tax-exempt organization?  What are the consequences for failure to comply? 
  • What are the legal and fiduciary obligations of our board members?   How can the board assure ethical conduct?
  • What are the required annual filings and disclosures that we must make to agencies and to the general public? 
  • Where are our greatest legal risks?   How do we avoid them (or plan for them)?

Presenter: Priya Morganstern is the Director of the Connecticut Program of Pro-Bono Partnership which oversees the Partnership’s services statewide (other than in Fairfield County). Priya provides direct legal services to local nonprofits; connects nonprofit organizations with volunteer attorneys; lectures frequently about nonprofit and tax-exempt organization law; and trains volunteer attorneys.
