Every organisation needs to keep documents — be they bylaws, budgets, minutes, agendas or marketing material.
By keeping all the organisation’s materials on a Google Drive (or another cloud storage service), will make it easier for committee members, staff and volunteers to keep track of documents, and not risk losing them when a computer crashes, or someone unexpectedly resigns. More importantly, moving to the cloud is a great way to demonstrate transparency, strengthen institutional memory, conserve resources, collaborate, and display tech-savvy.
Nonprofit Tech for Good has an article entitled “5 Reasons Your Board Should Switch to Google Drive” that cover the following points:
- Demonstrate Transparency
- Strengthen Institutional Memory
- Conserve Resources
- Collaborate Outside of Scheduled Meetings
- Display Tech Savvy
