The CiviCRM Core Team is pleased to announce what we hope will become an annual event; a combined governance summit and code sprint. This year’s event will begin on September 25th, immediately following CiviCamp Hartford, and will be located in West Milford, New Jersey (within an hour from major airports). Full event details including agenda and discussion are online (or will be soon) here: https://lab.civicrm.org/community-team/governance-summit-code-sprint/wikis/home
Tadpole Collective helped ArtsW move away from expensive proprietary software systems used for tracking their contacts, mailings, donations, and membership. We replaced their original WordPress website with a custom theme, integrated CiviCRM, and added custom functionality to allow their members (artists and arts organizations) to share original content, add events to the public calendar, post announcements, and much more.
CiviCamp Calgary 2018
Join us on Tuesday May 22 - 2018 for CiviCamp Calgary - a one day event covering everything related to CiviCRM. Attend CiviCamp and learn about CiviCRM and what it can do for your organization, meet other CiviCRM Users, CiviCRM Partners and CiviCRM Core Team Members and gather their feedback, learn advanced strategies for managing your online database, ask any questions you might have, share tips and build connections! This is the opportunity to meet the CiviCRM community and share experiences and knowledge with other organizations using CiviCRM!
During this coming April, you may notice something peculiar on the
civicrm.org download page -- instead of
4.7.32, you'll see a jump up to
5.0.0. Does this mean that CiviCRM is finally implementing a personal voice-assistant to take-down Amazon Echo? Nope. Maybe it means open-season on changes, granting a general license to break backward-compatibility? Nope. 5.0 is boring. It's basically the same thing as 4.7. It's just a big number with a little change.
One doesn’t need to be an actor, singer, or broadcaster to be a professional voice user – most everyone depends on their voices to earn a living. The Voice Foundation is committed to enhancing the gift of vocal communication through research and education. They needed a way to handle registration for their Annual Symposium and turned to Tadpole for a CiviCRM WordPress website that could be easily managed by a single administrator.
CiviCRM is the leading open source CRM for the non-profit, civic-tech, NGO, political and charity sectors. To make it easier to get started with the powerful solution –used by over 10,000 organizations– we're pleased to launch CiviCRM Spark.
