At September's meetup Kyle Jaster from Rayogram presented the newly released SimplyCivi Drupal theme, designed as a cleaner, more useful and user-friendly administration theme for CiviCRM. (Also check out Kyle's blog.) Below are notes from his presentation and information on how you can get and contribute to SimplyCivi.
Following on from our training camps last summer, we are very pleased to announce another two training events in London this September/October. The first is aimed at users and administrators, and the second is aimed at integrators, implementors and developers.
We'll have folks from around CiviLand joining us for these trainings (Archduke Lobo, Grand High Wizard Dave Greenberg, and more) so you'll be learning from the experts.
Last Friday I we had a BeNeLux CiviCRM meetup in Vianen, with 21 attendants from all three countries (Belgium, Netherlands and Luxemburg). Lobo was present too as he was in the neighborhood (Paris?) anyway.
It was a very inspiring sessions, that got off with a good introduction. We split up in different parallel sessions, where Lobo did a general introduction, Erik Brouwer did a session on localization and I discussed my showcase of synchronizing data between CiviCRM and an Oracle application at De Goede Woning.
Join us for the first Montréal CiviCRM meetup, Thursday July 8th, 17-19h! There will be report backs from CiviCon, French translation status, talks about the new book, case studies. We hope to encourage informal group talks based on various interests (users, integrators, developers).
- Report back on the first CiviCon (which was in April 2010 in SF after DrupalCon) and book/translation/code sprint

We will be live streaming the CiviCRM Toronto Meetup at June 15, 6:30-8:30pm EST.

I'll be presenting on How to Plan a Successful CiviCRM Implementation. We're hoping that remote participants will be able to join in our discussions.
Many thanks to the RNAO.org for hosting our Toronto Meetups.
About 25 folks gathered at the Wikimedia Foundation offices last night for our May SF meetup. We had a good mix of new and experienced folks, representing both organizations and consultants.
