BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (Vocus) April 5, 2010 -- Through a unique partnership, Battle Creek Unlimited and the
Nonprofit Alliance have pooled resources to offer “Totally Technology” training for community for-profit
businesses and non-profit organizations. The Spring series of online and classroom-based courses begin in April
2010. Course descriptions and registration are available to the public at http://www.bc-connected.org/technology/.
The free and low-cost training courses are designed to help professionals and organizations grow within today’s
market of high technology and interactivity. The courses are co-sponsored by Battle Creek Unlimited, Nonprofit
Alliance, Miller College and Kellogg Community College.
“Our for-profit businesses and non-profit organizations in Calhoun County exist in both collaborative and
competitive environments. We want to make sure our community can compete in a global marketplace, and these
courses are a contribution to that goal,” said Teresa Durham, executive director, Nonprofit Alliance.
The Nonprofit Alliance already has a robust training program, designed specifically for non-profit groups.
Building on that knowledge and training process, Battle Creek Unlimited teamed with the Nonprofit Alliance to
cross-promote and offer similar courses for businesses.
“Technology can help our businesses transform and create workplaces for knowledge workers in all industries,”
said Karl Dehn, chief executive officer, Battle Creek Unlimited. “This unique partnership allows us to streamline
and augment existing programs to elevate technology skill and knowledge.”
The first online webinar, entitled Technology Essentials for Nonprofits, takes place on Tuesday, April 13, from
