This year's San Francisco Bay Area CiviDay meetup "felt like a family reunion," according to one attendee, and no wonder it seemed homey: its venue was the large but comfortable common space of a cohousing community in Oakland. Over 30 people (reportedly over 40 at the peak) filled the dining room chairs, including CiviCRM core team members, nonprofit workers considering CiviCRM for their organizations, current users, consultants and developers looking to integrate CiviCRM with their own products.

CiviCRM cofounder Dave Greenberg gave us the origin story and described how a remarkably compact team (compared with some other CRM platforms) got us to where we are today after getting "bit by the open source bug" 10 years ago. Recently, a dedicated core group have been working hard to get CiviCRM on a solid, sustainable footing as the project outgrows its original funding model. Dave outlined the new ...

We've been using Civi here in Pittsburgh, PA for a few years now and would love to connect with other local users.

I'm considering organizing a Pittsburgh Meet Up but don't want to be the only one sitting at the table!  

Whether you are currently a CiviCRM user or a potential user, drop me a note (pmosey@chscorp.org) or add a comment here and let's get the ball rolling.  Skill level is a non-factor.

London

Barcelona

New York

Montreal

Tel Aviv...

Pittsburgh

Sounds pretty good!

The goal would be to eventually organize a Pittsburgh Meet Up and represent the Three Rivers on CiviDay 2016.

Spread the Word.

On Thursday, October 30th Web Access, Lighthouse Consulting and Design, and The Association Development Group (ADG) hosted the first ever Albany area CiviCRM meetup. Since this was the first of its kind in the area we were unsure of what to expect. We could not have been more pleased at how the event unfolded. 

We had a great turnout, almost everyone who had registered was able to make it. I attribute this to my co-sponsors Tony Mazzarella and Brian Shaughnessy and their connections in the local CiviCRM community. This event would not have been such a success if it weren’t for each of their participation in the planning and marketing of the event. 

The meetup’s agenda included two presentations. The first was a case study presented by Brian Shaughnessy outlining a lead prospecting system that he is working on for a client. The second presentation was from the CiviCRM core team member Kurund Jalmi, who discussed some of the new features...

There are four really interesting CiviCRM sessions penciled in for NTEN this year (in Austin, Texas).  In order to ensure these sessions get run, we need to win a popularity contest. Please vote for CiviCRM sessions to ensure everyone attending NTEN gets the opportunity to learn more about CiviCRM.  Voting is simple: Open this google doc to see all CiviCRM sessions planed, click on the link of the sessions you like the sound of, and vote the session up.  Voting closes on 18th July (3 more days!) so head over to the site today and help spread the word about CiviCRM.
