  1. DCN Board Recruiting Underway
  2. DCN Summer Intern Onboard!

1. DCN Board Recruiting Now Underway
This is an exciting time for DCN right now!  After carefully considering our needs, we have initiated a search to add several new board members in key areas.  We are beginning concurrent searches for candidates to lead our efforts in Funds Development, Outreach and Promotions and Educational relationships.

All of us recognize that DCN requires a base level of annual funding to provide the services that our stakeholders depend upon.  Strengthening our ability to successfully raise funding to better serve the community is a top priority, so we are seeking an energetic Funds Development Lead to help us in this important area.  We also understand that not everyone in the community knows about DCN and all the good efforts to support valuable non-profit organizations in our area.  An Outreach and Promotions Lead will help us spread the good word and increase our visibility so more people connect DCN with the worthy causes and organizations that we support.  Finally, we are very fortunate to have a top-flight university and high performing public school systems in our backyard.  We want to strengthen and expand our relationship with these vital stakeholders and an Educational Outreach Lead will be key to our success in this area.

We seek your help in this important initiative!  If you or someone you know of possesses the energy, vision and experience to help us move forward, please share your thoughts and ideas by contacting our recruitment chair, Brian Gegan, at (916) 549-3821 or  To learn more, click here.

2. DCN Summer Intern brings social networking tools to local non-profits
Sarah Robinson, a UC San Diego student, has joined DCN as a summer intern to refine and roll out its own Facebook presence, as a prelude to adding social networking tools to DCN’s "Internet Toolkit" for local non-profit organizations.  Although Facebook's popularity started out primarily among college students, its practical value for non-profit organizations is evident in a growing subscribership among them.  There are many things to consider as non-profits explore whether or not an investment in social networking tools makes sense for their organization.  DCN's plans to share its knowledge and experience with those interested in pursuing it.  If you are interested in attending a class on this topic in the Fall, please send your name and contact information to

Davis Community Network is a nonprofit organization that provides Internet-related services and support to local nonprofit organizations, public agencies, schools and individuals.
