December on-line classes for new and current users of CiviCRM

Cividesk is offering several on-line CiviCRM classes during the month of December for new and current users.  Cost is $40 per session and class size is kept small to allow for questions.

CiviDay 2016 - Wednesday 24th February

CiviDay - our annual celebration of all things CiviCRM is coming up on Wednesday 24th February 2016. Find out what CiviCRM can do for you, meet others that are using CiviCRM nearby, and find out what CiviCRM services are available locally.

The core of CiviDay is a series of meet ups in different cities around the world. Last year, we had 26 across 3 continents. This year, we'd love to see more cities, more counties, and all continents represented (OK, maybe not Antarctica!).

Time for Renewal

It’s been eleven years since I took a leap of faith and joined Donald Lobo on a journey to build a powerful set of integrated, free and open source tools for non-profits. I’ve had a career path full of pretty unusual twists and turns - ranging from turret lathe operator, and chef in a vegetarian cafe collective, to co-founder of a banking software company and social worker in a community mental health clinic (and I’ve left out a few other gigs).

New Training Offerings from AGH Strategies (including some online options!)

After receiving multiple requests, we are pleased to now be able to offer our CiviCRM trainings online. In addition to hosting these events in a new format, we are also offering trainings on new topics.

New year new LTS

As we near the end of 2015 we also near the end of the 4.4 LTS. This has been the second LTS release and it has been supported by the LTS team for a little over a year - meaning 4.4 has been supported for over 2 years in total. However, as announced previously the intention is for 4.6 to be the next LTS and we are now announcing that formal LTS support for 4.4 will stop at the end of the Jan 2016.

Giving Back: PermEzone

PermEzone turned to Cividesk for help with a contact management and fundraising system needed to support a pilot program to support permaculture training centers for family farmers in less-industrialized regions of the world. Cividesk offered their help as part of their Giving Back program.
