Ring in the New Year with first NTEN Happy Hour of 2013!

As the DC NTEN Happy Hour coordinator, I’m always looking for new places to have events, new speakers for said events, and new ideas for making these events the best ever. So I couldn’t resist when Ryan Ozimek, PICnet’s very own CEO, not only offered up the PICnet offices for an NTEN Happy Hour but also volunteered to speak at the event. I knew that this would be a great way to ring in the new year of NTEN Happy Hours.

I hope you agree and will join me next Thursday, January 24, 2013 from 6 – 8 pm at PICnet’s DC offices at 1605 Connecticut Ave. NW Third Floor.  Ryan will be discussing new ways to engage your online supporters in 2013. So if you want to know more, or if you want to pop by to meet and greet other members of NTEN, please RSVP here.

We’ll have complimentary drinks and snacks, so I hope to see you there!


We love our Project Managers and so do our clients!

We PICnetters are lucky to get a firsthand glimpse into the inner workings of social change agents in action. Our non-profit clients are why we exist in the first place … what can I say, we love our clients! We feel even more fortunate to know that the feeling is mutual. We thought we’d share some recent praise for one PICnetter in particular, Amber Manning, our newest project manager.

Amber had the pleasure of working with Groundswell (née DC Project), an organization dedicated to combating both economic inequality and environmental decline by promoting clean energy in local communities. Groundswell underwent a rebranding and needed a new website to match their new face to the world. Read more »

Help DC area schools, churches, and synagogues clean up this weekend

Our Web site has been an extremely useful way for greater DC area residents to post their snow-related problems and solutions.  Now it’s time to focus our energies!

If you’re from a school, church, or synagogue in the greater DC area, post any help you need this weekend for snow clean up, and we’ll crowdsource the community to help you in your efforts!

All you need to do is follow these simple steps:

  1. Go to
  2. Post your request for help using a title in this format:  “School:  Washington Elementary School” or “Church:  Episcopal Church of Washington”
  3. Make sure to specify clearly what your needs are in the body of your report (example: “We’ve got snow covering all our walkways, we need snowblowers and shovels”) and include your location in your report and using the map function.  Also, clearly state when you need people to arrive for help this weekend (example: “we’re looking for 10 people from the neighborhood to come help at 10am on Saturday”).
  4. After your report is approved by our team, you can use the link to your report to spread the word.  We’ll do the same on Twitter (using the #72scu hashtag) and on our Facebook Fan page.
  5. Keep checking the comments in your report, and encourage others to post their attendance in the comments of your report.

We’ll take these reports and highlight them on Twitter, Facebook, and the Web site!  Let’s clean up our schools, churches, and synagogues one snow shovel at a time!
