CiviCRM can be installed on Joomla, Drupal or WordPress popular and widely used open source content management systems (CMS). In this session, we will do an overview and demo of how a member portal can be started using WordPress. This will allow for the ability to do things like providing a login to members to view member only content, update their profile and see a history of their interactions with your organization.
Speaker: Dana Skallman
CiviCRM offers a feature called “Personal Campaign Pages”, which allow your organization’s supporters to set up a special donation or event page to recruit their friends, neighbors, and colleagues to participate.
Configuring anything in CiviCRM involves a lot of choices, and setting up personal campaign pages involves an especially large number of them, including the action your supporters will be asking their friends to take, the options presented to your supporters and their friends, and the appearance of the page itself. This session will include discussion of these general decisions as well as a step-by-step demonstration of setting up personal contribution pages.
Speaker: Andrew Hunt
This workshop will not prevent duplicate records. It will give you tools for finding and managing them.
Acknowledging that, we’ll look at the way that dedupe rules are marked in CiviCRM: unsupervised, supervised, and general. We’ll play with creating rules for all occasions and work as a group to find solutions to your specific duplicate-management problems.
Speaker: Andrew Hunt
Sidenote: Duplicate records are a very personal matter for Andrew: he attended high school with another Andrew Hunt, and he insists they are not the same person.

It’s a good problem to have, but the Wikimedia Foundation processes up to five donations per second during our peak fundraising season. This talk will address how we handle that flood of donations by splitting out CiviCRM from our front-end donation forms.
