For our 2014-01-21 BALUG meeting, we're proud to present:

CiviCRM[1] Open source constituent relationship management for non-profits,
NGOs and advocacy organizations.

For our 2014-01-21 meeting we have talk/presentation on CiviCRM by some
folks from CiviCRM -
Tim Otten - software architect
Dave Greenberg - core engineering team member
The talk will cover CiviCRM and will likely cover areas such as:
overview of Civi - the software and the project
approaches to extending and customizing the platform
and may also at least touch upon:
application level features
and other areas.
Feel free to ask your questions in advance on the BALUG-Talk[2] list, or

**Why RSVP??**

Well, don't worry we won't turn you away, but the RSVPs really help
BALUG and the Four Seas Restaurant plan the meal and meeting, and with
sufficient attendance, they also help ensure that we'll be able to eat
upstairs in the private banquet room.
