Lunchtime Lectures are paired with corresponding Workshops.

Lunchtime Lectures are free one hour sessions that offer nonprofit professionals a chance to learn about technology tools that will enhance your nonprofit communications. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own lunch.

Workshops are two hour, hands-on classes in which attendees will be able to apply the skills they’ve learned at the Lunchtime Lectures to their own nonprofit goals. Instructors will lead attendees on a deeper dive into the material, workshopping individuals’ drafted collateral as a group to strengthen skills and tighten communications. There is a $25 registration fee for CCTV Organizational Members, and a $50 registration fee for non-members.

All regular classes have two rates: one for Access Members and one for non-members. Advance registration is required and is accepted on a first-come basis. Early registration is advised since courses may fill up or be canceled due to low enrollment. Members with sufficient voucher balance may register over the phone (617) 661-6900; all others must provide full payment at the time of registration. Schedules are subject to change.
