Due to a scheduling conflict, the 2nd Community Round Table originally scheduled for July 13th will be postponed 2 weeks and will be held on July 27th. Additional information will be forthcoming. Sorry for any confusion!
The CiviCRM Community Council (CCC) is elected by the CiviCRM community and charged with coalescing the ideas, opinions and values of the community, stewarding our intra-community relations and protecting our community as a safe space to collaborate on our overall aim of providing a world-class open-source CRM aimed at doing global good.
The CiviCRM Community Council and CiviCRM Core Team are putting together quarterly meetings and invite you to attend. Dubbed ‘Community Round Tables’, these online meetings are intended to provide attendees with general project updates as well as an opportunity for Q&A and general feedback with the Community Council, the Core Team, and community members at large.
The Community Round Tables will include 2 meetings every quarter in order to accommodate users around the world, with the first happening on April 20th. Information and registration online:
As you may be aware, CiviCRM was recently given an award for its incredible social impact by the Free Software Foundation. I think we can all agree that CiviCRM is amazing software! Likewise, I believe that we all recognize that our diversity in perspectives, nationalities, genders, text editors, etc. is vital to the health of both the software and the project.
I’m writing this blog post because now may be one of those times where, as a member of our diverse community, you may wish to express your individual views.
45 people from around the world came together for three days to make CiviCRM better.
First of all, it’s been a huge privilege for me to be able to attend the Global Community Summit in Barcelona and all of us here agree that first and foremost we owe this to the amazing team at iXiam for organising a fantastic event! Being new to the community, I was a little concerned that it might be a little too dev-centric but I needn’t have worried.
In my previous blogpost on the Community Council and Sociocracy 3.0 (S3) I told you that we are studying and applying S3 to our community processes. In today’s little story I will focus on two important concepts in S3: driver and domain. And we are dying to get your feedback!
First of all, let me explain one aspect of our growing appreciation of S3 for our community:
The Community Summit 2020
We had such plans for 2020 with a UK-based summit in wonderful Devon. Then the world turned upside down and we've all struggled to maintain the energy we had and drive that energy into some kind of virtual event that would give the community the same experience as our Summit/Sprint events do every October. So we need to own up to something finally, the idea of a 2020 Community Summit is a dream.
This is an open invitation for everyone in the Asia/Pacific region to join other Australians, New Zealanders etc. on-line to catch-up and discuss all things CiviCRM. If you are a CiviCRM user, developer or casual user with questions, then you are most welcome to join us.The meeting is only 1 hour and has a set agenda (depending on number of people attending this may be shortened).
