A Message from the Founder and CEO Ed Schipul
Dear Tendenci Community,
This week marks the 22nd year that we have been in business. It seems like both a very short, and very long, time to walk this path.
We started out with a vision of connecting people and communities throughout the world, and while the technology involved has changed rapidly over time, our commitment never has.
Tendenci was built on the shared needs of organizations and nonprofits, designed by you to help people engage in fruitful discussion and support each other in individually specific ways.
Taking Tendenci open source was always the goal, a return to the roots of the Internet itself. Sharing information leads the way to bigger ideas, dreams that can be realized more quickly and more completely when we work together.
With developers around the world collaborating on Tendenci, the entire open source community benefits from a diversity of thought, a culmination of ideas that allow us all to step forward together.
We could not have taken this journey without you and thank you all for your support throughout the years. Tendenci will continue to grow and expand, knocking down barriers and delivering communication opportunities to people of all nations, regardless of circumstance.
Our vision and mission is still the same. To connect and organize the world’s people. Do good.
As a community, we can make that happen.
Founder and CEO
Authenticity & Connecting with People
“Change is constant! The world around us, the climate, our technology, the careers and jobs open to us are changing rapidly and will continue to do so in the coming decades.
In our lives the roles that we take on at different stages will change, we learn new skills, acquire new experiences, but ‘who we are’ is consistent.
If you ask people what are they good at, what do they enjoy doing? Most can answer and it probably won’t change from their 20s, to their 40s to their 60s.
If we can take note of who we are; what it is that we are good at, and what we love to do, navigating change, finding a role that we can excel in, and building a network around us becomes second nature.”
Our mission is to Connect and Organize the World’s People. Do Good.

Houston, TX —
The New York State Society of Professional Engineers, Inc. Westchester/Putnam Chapter supports their State (NYSSPE) and National (NSPE) Associations in protecting and promoting professional engineers in all disciplines and areas of practice, with a focus on the local needs of Westchester and Putnam County Professional Engineers.
The Westchester / Putnam Chapter chose Tendenci – The Open Source AMS to help connect local engineers through their events, as well as to provide current and prospective engineers with a wealth of knowledge and resources needed to further their training and education. The engineering association’s new Tendenci website was updated with a fresh contemporary layout to complement their messaging and to provide an engaging mobile-responsive interface to their users in the local engineering community.
NYSSPE-WPC’s new website utilizes many of Tendenci’s CMS features, including an array of Event Types from networking to professional development, to reach their constituents. Their new Customized Forms allow members to apply for sponsorship opportunities, nominate exemplary engineers for awards, and even apply for scholarships!
In addition, the chapter is able to showcase their corporate sponsors in the Directories Module, as well as incorporating them into the homepage layout, as a way to give thanks for supporting the engineering community.
Tendenci – The Open Source AMS is proud to partner with NYSSPE-WPC on their mission to promote and defend the lawful and ethical practice of engineering, enhance the professional development of local engineers and future engineers, and to preserve and sustain the future of local engineering practices.
We look forward to seeing their positive effects on the local Westchester Putnam County engineering community!
Why? Because Tendenci – The Open Source Association Management Software is open source and available to the world.
Richard Stallman asked himself a simple question. What does society need?
“What does society need? It needs information that is truly available to its citizens — for example, programs that people can read, fix,
adapt,and improve, not just operate. But what software owners typically deliver is a black box that we can’t study or change. Society alsoneeds freedom. When a program has an owner, the users lose freedomto control part of their own lives.
And, above all, society needs to encourage the spirit of voluntary cooperation in its citizens. When software owners tell us that helping our neighbors in a natural way is “piracy”, they pollute our society’s civic spirit.
This is why we say that free software is a matter of freedom, not price.”

Serious question: What differentiates Tendenci from all other AMS?
- Well, what other MAJOR AMS can you self deploy on the servers of your choice? In the data center of your choice? In the country of your choice? With the encryption and firewall restrictions of YOUR CHOICE. That’s just the beauty of open source.
- The price starts at zero. It. Is. Fully. Open Source. Here is a list of alternatives to Tendenci AMS (hint: almost all aren’t open).
- We take security very serious. Tendenci is the strongest and most secure web-based software platform for NPO’s globally. We also understand there are no “perfect” or “completely secure” systems. But we do more than just try. Transpar
ency is the key to Open Source AMS – no in-betweens. So there’s that.
- Languages? Ok! You can translate your AMS into the language of your choice. Although, you might find someone has already done this for you – 70+ languages of them.
