This week our team at Tendenci is celebrating twenty-three marvelous years of serving the world’s people! So, cheers to our clients and to the Open Source Tendenci Community! Our success is yours. Your success is ours. 

Twenty-three years ago, our Founder and CEO Ed Schipul started this wonderful company which was first known as Schipul The Web Marketing Company and today, with a broader global vision, is known as Tendenci – The Open Source AMS. 

We would like to take this moment and express that we understand we are living through uncertain times due to the coronavirus pandemic, which has brought us all a deep economical shock. It is especially in times like this, everyone needs to unite. 

Nothing is more satisfying to us than to continue to help organizations reach the far corners of the world, even through our hardest times. Yes, we are all being challenged, but crushing coronavirus uncertainty is a must. And restoring the confidence of nonprofits and associations is our mutual goal. Greatfully, Tendenci software – being open source is the advantage we hold. Proudly.

Building on last year’s message from Founder and CEO Ed Schipul, we would like to reinforce our message – thankfulness is more important than ever before.

Happy Twenty-three Marvelous Years!

Happy Women’s Equality Day!

Photo by Josh Johnson

As we celebrate Women’s Equality Day, we recognize that the constitutional “We the people” didn’t always apply to all of the country’s people. Yesterday marked 100 years since women finally won the right to vote. However, this victory was far from complete.  It wasn’t until 1965 that the voting rights of Black women and men were also protected.  And even still, voters fight to protect their constitutional rights.

With that in mind, and the struggle our country is currently undergoing, we understand the lack of fanfare marking this momentous event in modern feminism – a feminism that celebrates diversity.

Tendenci, a mostly women-led power team, would like to take this moment to recognize all of the contributions of women throughout history, and more specifically, women’s suffrage.

Happy (belated) Women’s Equality Day!

With love,

Team Tendenci

A Message from our CEO – Black Lives Matter

Black Lives Matter

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

Coronavirus DIY Facemask from CEO Ed Schipul

No worries if face masks are running out in stores, because there is always a solution to everything. Here is a DIY Facemask guidance from our CEO Ed Schipul. Because we care about you and your loved ones.

Rough cut comparison of the DIY coronavirus mask and the original.

From the article: https://www.eschipul.com/2020/03/coronavirus-diy-facemask-test/

“In Houston the Coronavirus (COVID-19) response has been quite aggressive. And as the third largest metro area in the US, it should be. I get it. Mostly we are quarantined in place except for grocery store runs and emergency needs. (And we can walk the dog, but that’s about it.)

This led to research on what we could do and turned up two interesting pieces of knowledge about the coronavirus. 

A) How long is the coronavirus contagious or viable by surface. As in how long can it be there and still infect you?”

A truly rustic looking diy coronavirus mask

Regards,

Ed.
