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...Read more

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.
Want to learn how to use CiviCRM/PowerBase to raise more money for your mission? Then join PTP On July 31 and August 1 in Baltimore. We'll spend two days learning how to be more effective in raising money. This training will help you develop an integrated grassroots fundraising approach for your organization. Progressive Technology Project has been working with grassroots organizations to help them raise money for their organization in an effective, integrated manner.
After having worked with CiviCRM for going on a year, I was excited to see the community around the project and learn more about others who are using CiviCRM. Initially, I questioned the risk vs. reward of traveling 3000 miles across the country and leaving my new business for so many days. As the time drew closer and I started digging deeper into the session descriptions I began to get excited.
For the past 10 years, I have been working with businesses in the For Profit sector to develop and implement CRM’s and Business Management software. A year ago I started my own business offering web development and cloud based software integration for non-profit organizations. I saw a large need for data management in the nonprofit sector and one of our first large clients brought up a...Read more
The Dallas / Fort Worth CiviCRM Meetup group will be hosting another Meetup on Thursday, April 10, 2014. We will meet at Improving Enterprises at 6:30 PM, but we suggest to arrive slightly earlier (6:00 p.m.) if you want to socialize.
Allen Shaw will lead the discussion on CiviCRM’s built-in mapping tool. While this mechanism is great for mapping event locations and calendars, it has other useful functions as well. We’ll survey modules and third-party APIs that allow you to add more dynamic information to your maps such as door-to-door survey information and congressional district overlays. Allen will also discuss how we can use CiviCRM’s calendaring tools to make event and activity data available in your Google or Outlook Calendar.
Skvare’s Mark Hanna led the last Meetup on...Read more

Yesterday was a great day for CiviCRM in Madrid. During the CiviDay, in Madrid, we announced the creation of a new CiviCRM working group that would start working the 11th February. We limited the number of participants to 25... and we had to close the inscription form fast because a lot of people was interested! Finally, we had our first meeting, and everybody was there. :-)
It's a very diverse working group. Some people are already working with CiviCRM, some of them were developers or integrators who wanted to know a bit more about the platform and other people just wanted to have a first view of the application because they need a CRM for their organizations.
In general, most of the people wanted to know a bit more about CiviCRM to see if it...Read more
