How I encouraged my clients to attend CiviCamp Birmingham

I've been providing CiviCRM services to clients for nearly 10 years but they've never come to an event. So I CiviMail'ed them the following to explain why I thought they should come. One client thought the way I'd explained things was "so useful it should be on the web", so I'm posting it here

 

Dear {contact.first_name},

There's a CiviCRM training/mini-conference event in Birmingham on 3 March - please consider coming to it. Please invite other colleague(s) as appropriate.

Reflections from CiviCamp London

CiviCamp London wasn't my first rodeo.

I’ve been a Civi user for about 5 years had been along to CiviCamp Leeds earlier in the year. But, London was particularly exciting for me personally as I was a week into my new job at that point, and seeing things differently from a new organisations perspective.

My first CiviCamp (in Dutch)

Maandag 13 mei was het zover. Mijn eerste CiviCamp. Ik werk inmiddels al een paar jaar met CiviCRM en het leek me goed om wat meer betrokken te zijn bij de community. Ik vond het wel spannend. Ik heb immers geen verstand van ICT, ik heb een sociale opleiding gedaan. Ik ben coördinator van een maatjesproject en gebruik CiviCRM om vast te leggen wie maatje van wie is. We zijn een kleine organisatie met slechts twee parttime medewerkers, maar ik zou mijn werk niet kunnen doen zonder CiviCRM.

You are invited to the first CiviCamp in the UK, brought to you in Manchester, the “uncrowned capital of the north”! Firstly, for those not familiar with the term, what is a CiviCamp? It’s a bit like a CiviCon, the annual conference for CiviCRM, where people gather for workshops and networking, to get a better idea of what CiviCRM is capable of and how to implement it more effectively in their own workplace.
