Cybersecurity + Compliance for Nonprofits

DATE: Tuesday, October 15, 2019
News of recent thefts regarding sensitive data are certainly a cause for alarm. Are you protecting the information you collect on donors, clients and internal documents? In what ways are you vulnerable?

In this meetup, we’ll be talking all about cyber security, data hosting rules, and the basic steps that all nonprofits should take to protect their data and services. Hear from local experts Mack Hardy, Alejandra Brown, and Kris Constable.

You don’t need to be a tech expert to be able to benefit from the meetup – it will be useful for:

– anyone in a management position in any organization – big or small
– people interested in security, governance and good housekeeping
– security and privacy experts who want to share their skills with nonprofits

HiVE Referral Program

Hey HiVE

We want to introduce something we think is exciting – A member referral program! (an admittedly lame name, but Krystal is the one who comes up with the cute names for stuff, not me….)
Anyway, here are the details – and I think you’ll like them.
For our members who pay the bill:
Bring a new permanent member in before September 30th and get 5% off a month on your individual membership, as long as your referral stays with us, up to a year.
For our members who work for someone, who pays the bill:
Bring a new permanent member in before September 30th, get 5% worth of your individual membership fee in CASH, as long as your referral stays with us, up to a year.
Jazzy no? I do have a couple notes worth of fine print to add.
New permanent members must be paying full rate and must be in good standing to receive commission. Commissions will be paid for up to a year, as long as your referral maintains their permanent desk membership.  Offer good on members starting on or before October 15, 2018. 
 
If anyone has any questions, please let me know!
Thanks!
John

Coffee Morning at the HiVE

“That’s the thing I like the most,” added curly-haired Jeremy Murphy, co-founder of the HiVE, who appeared from the woozy S-shaped ramp that connects the work space and main desk/kitchen areas.

Coworking: Without community it’s just working

“In a panel of coworking space operators, Melissa Hope from HiVE Vancouver spoke about the specialization of shared workspaces. She gave examples of workplaces focused on architecture or female-focused. While trying to cater to everyone is never a good business plan, the diversity of options means there is something for everyone.”
