Volunteering Just Got Easier

There are some behind-the-scenes changes happening with the PTA, and we're excited to tell you about them!

First, we debuted the new digital Tiger Beat a few weeks ago. If you currently aren't receiving the Tiger Beat in your email inbox every Tuesday morning, we want you to give it a try.

Second, we're excited to announce that we received a sponsored premium account for Podio, an online project management and collaboration tool. Here's why that's a big deal.

Travis events are incredibly successful. However, to continue that success, we need to make them less intimidating for volunteers to helm. A big step toward solving that problem is providing a tool that takes the project management process out of the email inbox and into a collaborative, coordinated and managed environment. We think that tool is Podio, and we're very grateful for their sponsorship.

p.s. We plan on documenting our experience with Podio for the benefit of other nonprofit organizations. We'll document everything, including setup, training and finally real-world implementation. If you want to follow along, we encourage you to do so here.
