This is very OT so hoping it'll fly after the Spring Game, but understand if not.
I'm on the board of a non-profit. The way the board is structured, people generally serve for two years and then cycle off. Most people on the board are in their 40's, and tend to communicate via email.
We have a big issue with record retention and reinventing the wheel. E.g person X is president of the board one year, has all the docs on their hard drive, and then cycles off. Person X emails Person Y all the stuff. Person Y then has all the docs, but needs help from Person Z, more email, etc. Email exists on everyone's own account; there is no lasting record of email conversations unless somebody takes the time to document it and save it out as documentation.
I'm looking for a collaboration site that would allow for calendaring, document sharing, centralized communications. If this site could be free, all the better.
I know MGoBlog is a Slack-house (?), and I've used it for work and liked it, only 5% for corgi-bombs. As a plus, non-profits can apply for a Standard license for free (up to 250 users).
Is Slack the way to go? Are there other alternatives people suggest? Could we do it all through Google docs/sheets/gmail?
Any advice/comment appreciated.
