<p>Since you're a member of NTEN, we know you value your network. As networks grow, they increase their sense of confidence. According to <a href="http://networkweaver.blogspot.com/2010/03/network-confidence.html">Network Weaving</a>, confidence is the expectation of success and comes from thousands of small acts of success within and across networks.&nbsp; The Nonprofit Technology Network is undoubtly more successful as our members become increasingly more triumphant in their use of technology at their organizations.</p>
<p>Certain people know as Network Weavers help make these network connections more possible.&nbsp; A Network Weaver is aware of the networks around them and explicitly works to make them healthier. Network Weavers do this by connecting people strategically where there's potential for mutual benefit, helping people identify their passions, and serving as a catalyst for self-organizing groups.</p>
