For the fourth year in a row, Denver has had a growing and thriving CiviDay co-organized by Cividesk and Teaming 4 Technology. We welcomed nearly 45 attendees for an all-day event in the beautiful venue at the Mile High United Way.

The day began with an informative presentation about the Vision and Ecosystem of CiviCRM presented by Cividesk. Then the participants split up in three different tracks with one track for new users or users evaluating CiviCRM, one track for current users and a technology track for more  technical users.

Both Cividesk and Upleaf presented sessions in the morning. Then after lunch we continued full speed ahead in the afternoon with 2 different training sessions for new users and intermediate users and a co-working session where Cividesk and Upleaf teamed up as experts in the field to answer any questions related to CiviCRM.

Session topics included:

Cividesk was happy to host another CiviDay in Paris, France with the collaboration of Talcod, an open source web agency dedicated to non-profit organizations.

We had about 20 participants, half of them totally new to CiviCRM, who came to discover the solution. Other participants were either already involved in CiviCRM projects, current end-users or preparing to begin using CiviCRM.

CiviDay NYC was hosted by the National Urban League and Tadpole Collective. We came together for an afternoon of working and learning together, followed by presentations in the evening.

Everyone who attended appreciated the opportunity to be in a room with other community members to talk through issues and hear about the work that others are doing. We had a good mix of developers and administrative end-users that ensured everyone had someone to bounce their ideas off of.

We had a awesome CiviDay 2016 in Amersfoort yesterday! A record 40 participants made me happy before the day even started :-) The Socialist Party was our host for the day, and they had prepared a morning session where they shared their experiences with CiviCRM, showed what they did and explained what they want to do in the future. A really impressive and inspiring session with the underlying message: there is so much to gain if you start using open source software, become part of a community and feel you can actually have an impact on your toolset!

Well, ok, not quite but I’m hoping that anyone who’s used CiviMail and message templates in anger will relate to the need for change and how CiviMail can become an asset rather than the elephant in the room.
