Basecamp project management with Ale Bezdikian for September 7th Nonprofit Commons Weekly Meeting

This Friday, September 7th, Nonprofit Commons is happy to feature Ale Bezdikian (alebez in SL), who will share how Basecamp project management tool makes working on a distributed team and collaborating on mutual projects so much easier. She is TechSoup’s Online Community and Social Media team Coordinator, where she spends most of her time using Basecamp to track her team’s daily project activities, keep them on a sustainable timeline, and meeting deliverables.

Ale’s bio: After studying journalism and comparative religion at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, Alexandra (Ale) Bezdikian was given a fellowship with Mother Jones Magazine where she produced videos as well as fronted their outreach communications department. Currently, Ale is TechSoup’s Online Community + Social Media team Coordinator, and loving it! That means she keeps the team on track and in check, making sure everyone is meeting timelines and deliverables. Most of her time is spent wiki gardening and managing her team in Basecamp.
