This is your meetup, so the first meeting will be an informal discussion that will allow us to figure out the needs of the nonprofit community and determine what you want from a Salesforce meetup.

And while you’re waiting for the meetup to start why not apply for the Salesforce Foundation software grant?

We encourage neophytes to seasoned developers to share information with the larger community.
