A small but very enthusiastic group came. We decided to move the meetup to the second Wednesday of each month. The location may alternate between Clearwater and Plant City, FL. Each person described their use of CiviCRM and many questions were asked and answered. Don Latshaw, fresh from CiviCon in SF presented "What's new in 4.3". There was an equal mix of Drupal, Joomla and Wordpress users. The next meetup will be June 12th and we'll look at CiviCase in depth.
This Meetup was kindly hosted by Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research, at their office in Holborn.
Jamie Novick (of Compucorp) demonstrated CiviMail as a mass means of communicating by email and SMS.
Owen Bowden (of LLR) demonstrated how to do surveys using CiviMail and WebForm-Civi which enables the key results of the survey questions to be stored in CiviCRM.

January 23, 2013 was CiviDay. A celebration of an OpenSource Software that had made an impact on non profits across 5 continents. And so it was fitting that the celebration was not limited to the US but was held across the globe.
We in Web Access were possibly the first Global Meet that kicked off the CiviDay celebrations. The meet up was expected to gather around 6 to 8 people. So all of us were pleasantly surprised when we had over 14 registrations. And even more surprised when 18 people showed up.
We had a great turn out in New York City despite the bitter cold weather here.
The CiviDay for the Benelux in Apeldoorn was visited by about 25 people. Quite a few were new.
The day started with an explanation about CiviCooP bij Erik Hommel. CiviCooP will be a formal organisation where smaller CiviCRM organsations are able to do the work they like most, and cooperating with others for everything else.
Each organisation would then be able to offer the full CiviCRM service (hosting, building, maintenance, custom code, design).
It was amazing to see and hear so many reports from CiviDay meet ups happening all over the world this Wednesday. It's an awesome example of the power of the CiviCRM community - and open source networks in general - to make things happen. It was only last month that we decided to create a CiviDay and put up a blog post inviting people to participate.
It's with great regret that the Australia/New Zealand CiviCRM community announce the postponement of our first CiviCon. Whilst we had received some fantastic offers of sponsorship and session proposals, we just weren't getting the public registrations required to run such an event.
