Facilitated by Dave Greenberg, CiviCRM Product Manager
Dave will facilitate an interactive discussion engaging and activating users and developers to help with support, QA, documentation, code contributions, feedback on features, etc. Participants will be invited to discuss their experiences, what's worked, what has not worked and hear the same from other projects.

External forces that impact the use of technolog ywithin organizations. Plan for everything except technology.
