Happy New Year!!! Our normally scheduled call to chat about all things Drupal and nonprofits will happen Thursday, January 16, at 1pm ET / 10am PT. (Convert to your local time zone.)

This month, in addition to our usual free-for-all, we'll be talking about Drupal and CiviCRM.  Have you got it up and working your Drupal 8 site? For those of us still working in Drupal 7, what can or should we doing to prepare for the inevitable upgrade? What are your favorite resources for working with these two systems?  Come share your experiences!

Feel free to share your thoughts and discussion points ahead of time in our collaborative Google doc: https://nten.org/drupal/notes

We have an hour to chat so bring your best Drupal topics and let's do this thing!

DrupalCon Seattle is just a couple of weeks away. Here are a few parts of the conference that will be of especially interest to nonprofit types.

Nonprofit Summit

https://events.drupal.org/seattle2019/nonprofit-summit
Tuesday, April 9, 9:00am - 4:30pm
Cost: $150 in advance, $200 on-site (Coffee and lunch included)

Join us for an interactive day of learning and networking with nonprofit leaders and Drupal experts. This day-long summit is designed to bring together peers and experts to share knowledge and to network. The summit is open to all nonprofit staff, volunteers, and service providers who are using, or considering using, Drupal as part of their technology stack.

Using an interactive format of focused, informal breakout discussions on a variety of community-generated topics, the summit is an opportunity to connect with other nonprofit Drupal users and service providers, generate ideas, solve problems, and learn from each other about best practices and new trends. Whether you're coming just for the day, or continuing on for the rest of DrupalCon, you’ll leave feeling energized and ready to apply what you've learned!

Free tickets are still available for the summit for nonprofit staff (two tickets per organization). Contact Johanna Bates via https://devcollaborative.com/contact for more information. 

Drupal and Nonprofits Birds of a Feather Session

https://events.drupal.org/seattle2019/bofs/drupal-and-nonprofits
Wednesday, April 10, 2:30pm - 3:00pm

If you work in a nonprofit using Drupal, or you work with nonprofits using Drupal, this is the BoF for you. Stuck on something? Have a question? Let's chat!

If you're not able to make it to DrupalCon this year, we'll miss you! But be sure to join us for our regular monthly chat on Thursday, April 18 at 1pm ET/10am PT, where we'll be sharing our DrupalCon experiences and talking about whatever else is on our minds at the intersection of Drupal and Nonprofits.
