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.
CiviCRM is available in over 25 languages, thanks for the many efforts of hundreds of translators around the world, but also from CiviCRM developers who have made sure that the texts in the software can be translated and adapted to differents regions.
Occasionally, a feature or a piece of text might not be in the correct language, usually because of a bug in how the code was written.
Prepare for CiviCRM 5.31 now - changes could affect customisations
CiviCRM version 5.30.0 is now out and ready to download. This is a regular monthly release.
Upgrade now for the most stable CiviCRM experience: https://civicrm.org/download
Users of the CiviCRM Extended Security Releases (ESR) do not need to upgrade, as there are no ESR-specific bugfixes or security issues at the moment.
Important announcements and reminders:
Usually we organise meetups on a nice location to see and meet people, who are interested in CiviCRM, in real life. But thanks to Corona that was not possible this time. So we organised our first Webinar: one for Dutch speaking people from the Netherlands and Belgium. Over 30 people signed up! More than we expected, and more than we usually welcome at our ‘normal’ meetups.
For the past few weeks I have been sending a dev digest to the dev-civicrm mailing list at the end of each week (subscribe here). The dev digest is a mix of what's being worked on, what proposals people are looking for input on, what we need review or help with, or just whatever bubbles to the top.
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:
On 5 October we have planned a CiviCRM Webinar for current users and interested parties. The rest of this blog is in Dutch, since the meetup / webinar is aimed at organisations in Belgium/Flanders and The Netherlands. For English speaking users: we will plan another webinar in November.
Does your professional association or non-profit organization have trouble with member retention?
If you are a business leader at a professional association or member-based organization, then our upcoming webinar is just for you!
