I've heard from several people who are unable to attend the "Drupal
For Good - San Francisco Bay Area" session at NTC, but who are still
interested in the topic. If you're in this boat, I'd like to invite
you to participate virtually. Here's how:
At the meeting, we will do a brainstorming session to identify the
people, organizations, and resources that make up the local
Drupal-for-nonprofits scene. The results will be compiled into a
document and posted on the web. Even if you can't join us for the
session, you can still be represented and contribute to the
brainstorming effort. Just fill out the information below (as much or
little as you wish) and email it to me by Thursday, April 30.
4. Contact info (will be posted on the web, please take this into
account if you're worried about spam/privacy)
5. Where in the Bay Area are you based?
6. How are you involved with Drupal for nonprofits?
7. Do you know of any good resources in the local
Drupal-for-nonprofits scene? (e.g. BADCamp, local user groups/events,
or anything else helpful to the rest of us)
8. What Drupal help do you need? For example:
- Seeking Drupal work, or seeking to hire a Drupaller
- Nonprofits looking for Drupal volunteers
- Need Drupal mentor/coach/buddies :-)
- Specific questions about Drupal
- Anything else you can think of!
9. What Drupal help can you give? For example:
- Sharing Drupal case studies and war stories with other nonprofits
- Offering expertise/advice in a specific area of Drupal
- Drupal coaching, peer mentoring
- Hosting/sponsoring local Drupal events, organizing Drupal groups
- Professional Drupal services
- Anything else you can think of!
- If you're willing to provide this help on a free/volunteer
basis, please say so!
10. Do you know of any other people, companies, or nonprofits in the
Bay Area doing stuff with Drupal, that we should know about?
I'll make sure that your answers get included in the session write-up,
and will also send out the link to the session notes, once they're
I'm looking forward to meeting and talking Drupal with everybody, in
person or otherwise!
