One of the advantages of running this event for a second year is that we got to listen to feedback from last year's attendees about what they wanted to see more of. So this year, we have a whopping 15 sessions, 5 tracks, more nuts and bolts sessions, and longer afternoon sessions that are process-based instead of function-based, meaning that they focus on using Civi to complete a full nonprofit work process from start to finish. Plus we are starting and ending the day a little bit earlier to better accomodate travel arrangements.

These sessions are not finalized yet but this gives a good idea of the material we'll be covering:

Session 1 (10:00 - 11:00)

  • Custom Data & Profiles
  • System Administration
  • Activities and Cases
  • CiviCRM 101 - What is Civi and What Can It Do For Me?

Session 2 (11:15 - 12:15)

  • Managing Duplicate Records

  • Accounting Integration
  • Reports
  • Integrating CiviCRM with your Website

Session 3 (2:15 - 3:45)

  • Organizing & Categorizing Your Contacts
