You've decided to use CiviCRM. Now what? This 45 minute episode will cover what you should (and should not) do before starting to use CiviCRM. Topics will include how to figure out what data you have, what data you actually use, and what information you need to get from your database over time to do your job well. These are not easy questions to answer because every organization is unique. Even though we'll use one organization as an example during the call, we invite you to ask many questions along the way that pertain to your particular situation. Kellie Brownell from Giant Rabbit will be facilitating the discussion. Please email her right away if you want to join at firstname.lastname@example.org with (1) your name, (2) organization and (3) one thing you hope to take away from the discussion. There are only 9 spots available.
Introduction to CiviCRM Mini-series is an experiment. We want to provide more forums for new users to meet and learn from other members in the community. The topic for each bi-monthly call will build on the one before it. For example, the next few calls will cover importing your data into CiviCRM, creating mailing lists, and sending your first mailing.
