CiviCamp: Register

By popular demand this year, we're giving CiviCamp more time, so that participants can go deeper.

The program starts with our State of CiviCRM, followed by a scrumptious lunch and a half-day Unconference, where we invite you to create the agenda: get together with "birds of a feather" to learn from your peers and Civi experts about the things that interest you. The second day is structured around more traditional conference-like sessions. Throughout, you'll have opportunities to network and connect with the CiviCRM community.  We will also have a “Civi Doctor” on hand to answer individual questions.

We are keeping this two-day event affordable to encourage attendance. Breakfast and Lunch are included as well as all-day opportunities to network with SF Bay Area's CiviCRM community, and beyond.


WEDNESDAY: Unconference and Open Space
Facilitated by Neil Planchon
Location: Nile Hall

We are creating an environment for learning and collaboration where our CiviCRM community can support each other, meet their peers, and connect with service providers and CiviCRM Core Team members. Come with questions to explore with fellow Civi users and experts, or projects to work on. Or, if you're new to CiviCRM, get a tour of the software from people who use it every day. Lots of CiviCRM experts on hand AND a (highly requested) Help Desk staffed by one or more “Civi Doctors”!
