American Citizens Abroad Tendenci WebsiteHOUSTON, February 18, 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 mobile-friendly website for American Citizens Abroad. The website, https://www.americansabroad.org, provides valuable information for Americans living overseas regarding taxation, citizenship and current legislative topics. 

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

From the American Citizens Abroad website:

ACA is a non-profit organisation whose mission is to Educate, Advocate and Inform both the US Government and US Citizens living and working overseas on issues of concern to the overseas US Citizen community. ACA works to find practical solutions to resolve issues impacting overseas US Citizens and communicates results to constituents stateside and abroad. ACA is the premier thought-leader on issues affecting US Citizens living and working overseas.

While the US Embassy handles paperwork and government submission requirements for Americans overseas, ACA is an advocacy organization that provides a collective voice for all Americans living abroad. ACA keeps abreast of changes in the laws that affect overseas Americans and lobby for better legislation that protects the rights of these citizens. ACA recently released a free directory of Tax Return Preparers that specifically address the requirements of overseas American ciitizens.

ACA has multiple membership levels within the organization and selected Tendenci as the best membership software solution for their needs. With members living in countries around the world, ACA sought a platform that supports multiple languages, provides flexibilty on membership terms, and allows for multiple forms of payment. Tendenci's open source structure allows ACA to customize page views, online forms, reports and layout elements to meet their specific needs.

The flexible Content Management System included with the Tendenci platform allows ACA to easily post recent changes within the American legislative system to keep the information timely and useful. A full archive provides a historical perspective on the evolution of laws regarding Americans overseas. With quick and easy inhouse management of site content, ACA is able to listen to their constituents and take action on behalf of all Americans living abroad.

We are proud to work with an organization that is dedicated to improving the lives of our fellow citizens that are currently living outside of our borders.

Tendenci has more than 1 million users and currently powers hundreds of websites for associations around the world, including the American Association of Singapore, (www.aasingapore.com), the American International Club of Geneva (www.amclub.ch) and Advance: Australia's Global Community (www.advance.org).

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).

Top Membership Management Software

We'd like to congratulate all of the companies on the list for doing great things for the NPO community. These are all people trying to make the world a better place and to help membership associations and non-profits. Membership management software is quite complicated so it's a great group of people to be ranked with.

A special tip of the hat to Wild Apricot for being ranked number 1.

In English that means the Tendenci Membership Management code is readily available and documented here you don't have to even host with us. There is a lot of value in hosting with us, but perhaps you prefer or are required to install software locally. Well, you pick!

In closing - THANK YOU to companies like Capterra, NTEN, and Techsoup for providing guidance to the community, a community that we are all committed to helping.

Houston Public Library Foundation Selects Tendenci® CMS Platform to Power New Website

Showcases support for the Houston Public Library through advocacy, fundraising

Tendenci Powers HPLF Nonprofit WebsiteHOUSTON, January 29, 2013 – The Houston Public Library Foundation (HPLF) has launched a dynamic website powered by Tendenci (www.tendenci.com), the open source Content Management System for nonprofit organizations (NPOs), which makes it easier than ever for Houstonians to support the Houston Public Library. The new website, www.houstonlibraryfoundation.org, was designed by Schipul - The Web Marketing Company (www.schipul.com), a leading Web marketing and software development company based in Houston.

HPLF is a 501(c)(3) organization focused on increasing the Houston community’s awareness of the vital role our Houston Public Library plays in its quality of life. Featuring large, colorful photographs that depict how HPLF supports the Houston Public Library through advocacy and fundraising, the new website uses Tendenci’s broad range of capabilities to promote upcoming events and sponsorship opportunities, recruit volunteers and encourage online donations. The organization also uses Tendenci’s integrated digital media management package to organize, collect and share photos of HPLF’s activities.

“Previously, our Web presence consisted of a single page on the Houston Public Library website, which didn’t provide the platform we needed to engage the community, encourage donations and showcase how we use funds to advance the Library’s mission,” said Maya Houston, executive director of HPLF. “The team at Schipul did a great job of visually capturing and presenting what the foundation is all about and Tendenci CMS makes it easy to add and edit content to keep the site fresh and lively.”

While the City of Houston supports the Library's basic expenses, such as salaries and materials, the Houston Public Library Foundation contributes significant funding for additional books and materials, programming, critical staff development and training, marketing and communications materials and minor refurbishment projects. Without the private funds raised by HPLF, many of the free programs the community relies upon, such as Summer Reading and resume writing classes, would not be possible.

Schipul has released Tendenci CMS as an open source product to give NPOs such as Houston Public Library Foundation greater control over their online presence. The Tendenci site automatically recognizes and accommodates mobile and tablet users by auto-resizing and formatting to the width and height of any device. Tendenci also allows administrators to manage online calendar events and registration for these events including reporting and e-mail notifications. It also features out-of-the-box search engine optimization and Web analytics integration to help maximize and track online visibility.

Tendenci CMS has more than 1 million users and currently powers hundreds of websites for nonprofit organizations and associations around the world, including Metropolitan New York Library Council (www.metro.org), Houston Technology Center (www.houstontech.org) and Komen Houston (www.komen-houston.org).
