The Salvation Army Echelon: Managing Multiple Chapters Within One Site

The Salvation Army Echelon, the official young adult auxiliary of The Salvation Army, is the product of an idea that begun in Dallas, Texas in 2010. What started out as a small junior women’s auxiliary meeting monthly at private residences is now a rapidly-growing, nationally branded organization boasting more than 300 diverse members, female and male, ranging in age from 21 to 35, and hailing from universities around the country.

Pro-bono Drupal work available

Cividesk is one of the leading CiviCRM service providers. Giving Back is a cornerstone of our company culture, and we proudly support many charitable and humanitarian organizations with pro-bono or reduced-cost services. While our Giving back program is usually full, we still have a few Drupal openings this summer and would therefore be glad to support nonprofits that need Drupal work with pro-bono services.

Fuzion have been driving the initiative to have CiviCRM ready to roll when Drupal 8 is released and there have already been some generous sponsors for our work to help get us this far. We have CiviCRM currently working on latest beta, and old friends like Views are working fine and you can give it a try out at http://civid8.fudev.co.nz/.

These are the key questions you should have answered in the final stages before deployment:

Easier creation of email newsletters - New version

When preparing an email newsletter, one part of it that is time consuming is gathering together all the content that is needed. In my experience, virtually all the content already exists elsewhere, such as in the local CMS, in CiviCRM, or on a blog, or some other online source.    So I was thinking how can I make this process easier.  What I did: I created mail merge tokens for CiviCRM that autofill a list of recent blog posts, stories, or any other type or category of CMS content.
