Black Lives Matter - A Message from our CEO

As a company we have a very clear vision.

To Connect and Organize the World's People. Do Good.

With the turmoil tearing through our country as the realization of systemic racism and the physical danger black people are facing, as the CEO of Tendenci, I want to add to the dialogue. While these opinions are being typed by me, I do hope every member of the Tendenci team shares these values.

I believe in this:

Black Lives Matter

I'm a graduate of Texas A&M University, I have *not* served in the Military but I am an Army brat. Many in my family have served and I grew up on Army bases. So as we say at TAMU "Let me tell you a Story Ags!"

The Survey Questions from "Brats: Our Journey Home".

Years ago I filled out a survey for a movie that was in Production/Screenwriting stages called "Brats: Our Journey Home". The survey had tons of questions about my experience growing up as an Army Brat. One question was on racism in the Army.

I responded, in all seriousness, to the question that If I thought Racism was no longer a big problem in America. Literally, I said "no, I don't think  it is."

Truly I can't make this up.

The next day, my phone rings. It's either the producer or the director on the line. I'm like "what? huh?" Obviously I wasn't expecting that. We exchange small talk and then he asks me "So Ed, you really don't think Racism is that big of a deal in America?" 

I repeated my answer, perhaps a bit more timid, but still I replied with "no, not really. I just don't see it."  (stay with me and keep reading please....)

The producer asked me, and I am paraphrasing as it has been a while, the following:

Director: "Ed, can you name one place in the United States of America in 1958 where a black man could tell a white man what to do and they had to do it unconditionally?"
Me: "um... an Army base?" (Ding ding ding... the lights start to go on....)

Director: "Yes. That's it Ed! One place! You grew up on bases all over the United States and overseas and YOU never saw how large a problem it was and still is. Because you are white, even though racism was still there on base to a lesser degree, it wasn't visible to you. YOU grew up a white kid in a non-political environment and thought nothing of having a black family join y'all for dinner. That's how you were raised."

The director continued..

"Have you ever heard the saying that 'you don't care about the color of a man's skin if he's sitting in a foxhole with you?' You have because your Father served in Vietnam."
Me: "OK.. you make a damn good point. I learned to ride horses from Master Sergeant Willians (Ret), and played basketball, and worked out with the GIs at the gym, and I guess I just never really thought about it."

I'll stop there. I was wrong back then. And I promise you, if you think racism is not a big issue in America to this day, you are wrong. There ARE things we can do to change it. And we must. 

I have contributed, but more importantly, I need to recommit to ACTS of change. Not words or hashtags. 

I believe this image from twitter user x says it far better than I can, so I will let these words speak for themselves:

Newsletters

The Newsletters module works almost exactly the same as before. We have made a few features a little bit easier to use. For example, if you'd like to re-assign the newsletter to a different group, you can now do so even after you've generated the Newsletter in the first step. We've also made some layout improvements that take advantage of Bootstrap's framework. The "clone" feature has also been added to this module. With clone, you can send a test e-mail, then clone it and send it to your target audience rather than copying and pasting the contents from the first send.

Reveille Club of Houston Launches New Open Source Tendenci Website

Reveille Club Returns to the Tendenci Platform for Membership and Event Management Features

Reveille Club of Houston WebsiteHOUSTON, February 3, 2016 –Tendenci (www.tendenci.com), the software development company spearheading the Tendenci Open Source platform for associations and other nonprofits (NPOs), is proud to release a dynamic membership website for the Reveille Club of Houston. The website, http://www.reveille.org, promotes local networking events for Aggies and non-Aggies alike to build new business relationships in the Houston area.

Tendenci Open Source was released as an open source solution for associations and non-profits to give membership organizations greater freedom and control over their online presence.

The Reveille Club of Houston is focused on building a professional community in the Houston area for friendship and networking. The club hosts weekly breakfast meetings and monthly luncheons for an opportunity to hear informative speakers and network with other professionals. All events are open to everyone in the community, regardless of alumni or membership status.

Reveille Club moved to a different platform a few years ago and then returned to Tendenci for the Event Management and Job Board features. While the weekly breakfast meetings are "cash at the door" events, the Houston Aggie Women require registration and prior payment for their plated luncheons. Having the ability to load speaker information, accept online registration and payments, run a check-in roster and send automatic event reminders make Tendenci an ideal choice for their group.

The flexible Content Management System included with the Tendenci platform also provides quick and easy inhouse management of site content. Volunteers with the organization are able to promote upcoming events, highlight recent news, revise page content and post photos using a simple, non-technical inteface.

As Aggies, we are especially pleased and proud to be supporting the Reveille Club and providing a platform on which they can run the association.

Tendenci has more than 1 million users and currently powers hundreds of websites for organizations around the world, including the San Francisco Bay Area Innovation Group (www.sfbig.org), the New York Emmy Awards (www.nyemmys.org) and the Houston Technology Center (www.houstontech.org).
