Next meet up for the UK usergroup will be at the Create Centre in Bristol on Tuesday 22nd July, 4-6pm.

Following on Lobo's recent blog post about missing features in CiviCRM - we decided to take a closer look at what it would take to get basic "Pledge" functionality added to CiviContribute (and then evaluate how soon we could take that "leap").
