Online and offline membership sign-up and renewal,donations and event registration, integrated with our Drupal website. Directory for members, group and bulk emails, renewal reminder emails. Exciting to have complex conference registration within our CRM. Impressed with the Civi community and ongoing development of new features and improvements.
Working as a part of GMCVO Databases I implement CiviCRM and support local organisations with their installs. The diverse range of clients we have is a testament to how adaptable
and flexible CiviCRM is to meet the needs of so many organisations.
A lot of our clients are small grass-roots organisations that run entirely on volunteers. They often don’t have the budgets to pay for bespoke systems and CiviCRM offers a robust and adaptable system that is affordable too.
At the Wikimedia Foundation, we leverage CiviCRM to maintain millions of records of donors and their contributions. Working with the product and particularly with the community has been a terrific experience. There's nothing quite like two open source organizations working together to meet their respective goals while ultimately strengthening the open source community as a whole.
I am trying to build a stronger End-user community withing CiviCRM to increase cooperation among non-profits using CiviCRM in similar ways. Going to CiviCRON and being a part of the community at the conference has made me want to make the End-user community more robust. I think the open-source and non-profit focused nature of CiviCRM lends itself to strong community building as is an aspect of CiviCRM that is exciting!
The CiviCRM community has been a tremendous resource for new ideas and helping us solve problems. We are excited to contribute customizations EFF makes back to core and support new features such as batch entry for offline donations or multiple payment processors on one donation form.

One of our clients was wrestling with getting WordPress events to display within their event calendar, and I finally had enough. We really just needed a simple WordPress widget that displays upcoming CiviCRM events.
Excited to try the new features in this release? Please do! Great software requires great testers, and you can help. You don't need to be super technical to participate in this way, but your participation will make a huge difference.

We learned that there was a need to develop a CiviCRM local community in Mexico, based on enlarging the demand (Civil Society Organizations that valued the system could pay for and use CiviCRM), the offer (IT providers and web-designers that could offer their knowledge, skills and services to these organizations at reasonable prices) and the links to the international CiviCRM community (understanding the steps towards expanding the outreach of the software and make its installation and usage more friendly in IT-scare contexts).
WordPress is the most popular content management systems in the world and CiviCRM is the most popular open source CRM for non-profits and the civic sector. With CiviCRM 4.1 support for Wordpress, Wordpress users were able to use the most powerful CMS + CRM combination ever.
This Plugin has the same functionality as CiviMember Roles Sync module in Drupal.The Plugin checks the Membership details when the user login/logout and update the WordPress Role according to the Rules set in Association Rules .The manual synchronize option is also available.It has one more field to set Expiry Role ie, assign role if the membership is expired.
At CiviCon, Gunner from Aspiration Tech facilitated a session with the entire community soliciting feedback, discussion and comments on the project. It was a good opportunity for everyone to give feedback on the state of the project, things that we are doing a good job with, and things that we can improve. We ended up doing a collaborative grouping of the feedback in various categories and sorting the comments.
Some of the positives that are worth highlighting include:
We strongly recommend that you upgrade a test copy of your site and review your critical workflows before upgrading your production site. You can also test-drive the release on each platform using the public demos:
CiviCRM had a very successful year in 2011. The project grew significantly in different areas and we made progress on a few long standing issues. The biggest change in our opinion is the increase in community involvement across all aspects of the project.
We had 1 major release which supported Drupal 6, Joomla 1.5 (v3.4) and Drupal 7, Joomla 1.6 (v4.0). We also had 13 minor releases in 2011. A chart of the types of organizations using CiviCRM can be found here along with the usage of various components.
We held the 2nd North America CiviCon in Chicago which was organized by Young-Jin Kim from Emphanos. The 1st CiviCon Europe was held in London and organized by Michael McAndrew, Third Sector Design and David Moreton, Circle Interactive. Each of the conferences had 100+ attendees. We also held user and developer training, and code sprints around these conferences
CiviCon – the annual conference for CiviCRM developers, implementers, administrators and users – is happening in the San Francisco Bay Area on April 2nd. Early bird registration is just $75 and ends less than a month away on January 30th, so reserve your spot now.
CiviCon is the annual CiviCRM event bringing together the people who develop, design, implement, administer, and use CiviCRM. We'll have great speakers, breakout sessions and panels highlighting real-world examples of nonprofits growing and sustaining relationships using CiviCRM. Find out about the future of the platform through discussions with the core team. You'll have ample opportunity to ask questions, meet other users and developers, make valuable connections, and get involved in the community.
The team is super excited to announce the first alpha release for 4.1 with support for Drupal 7, Drupal 6 (yes it is backwards compatible!!!), Joomla 1.7, and for the very first time integration with Wordpress (wohoooo!!!).
Please remember this is an ALPHA release and it should NOT be used on production sites - however, we strongly encourage everyone upgrade a copy of your current site(s) on a test server and let us know about any bugs or problems.
