NetSquared groups provide a space for anyone interested in technology and social impact to connect, share ideas, and collaborate in-person.
We meet monthly and focus on nonprofit systems administration. Anybody who deals with tech at their nonprofit (or small business) is welcome; you do not need to be a professional full-time systems administrator. See our about page (http://www.meetup.com/NetSquared-Kitchener-Waterloo/about/) for more information.
This month, we take a look at CiviCRM. Building constituent relationships and managing data can be a daunting task. CiviCRM aims to help manage this data in a way that is, at first glance, easy to manage and to update. Maintaining these vibrant relationships is often key to the financial survival of some non-profit organizations. Perhaps CiviCRM could be the answer for your non-profit and donor-base data management.
Ian Kelly, General Manager at PeaceWorks (https://www.Peaceworks.ca), walks us through all facets of CiviCRM and will speak to installation, management and use of CiviCRM for non-profits.
Ian Kelly has over 25 years of experience working in the field of information systems in a variety of settings. He has a diploma in business administration from Wilfrid Laurier University and a Certificate in Project Leadership from the University of Waterloo. Ian provides fiscal, operational and strategic management of PeaceWorks. Highly effective in managing staff, Ian takes ownership of situations and puts a high priority on customer service delivery at PeaceWorks.
Ian has been involved in the creation and maintenance of several CiviCRM projects at PeaceWorks, providing guidance and support to many of our not-for-profit clients. He also encourages our PeaceWorks staff to contribute to CiviCRM community. PeaceWorks is CiviCRM Bronze Partner.
