Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame, With conquering limbs astride from land to land; Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame. “Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”
Cyberattacks during COVID-19 have been more worrisome at a time when virtual learning is at its peak, at a time where countries are encouraging citizens to stay, learn or work from home. It is why NOW is the crucial time to focus on cybersecurity, whether it’s for yourself or your workplace.
Here is a list of must reads. Let’s take care of each other during these heavy times due to COVID-19

Tendenci software can integrate with an LMS (Learning Management System) or MOOC (Massive Open Online Course). If you wish to know more, please give us a call at (281)497-6567 or submit a support ticket. We can’t wait to hear from you.
THANK YOU to all of the developers out there who are contributing, translating, updating and maintaining a very complex piece of software. AMS software that is inclusive of other languages and cultures, and a team that believes in security and privacy. Lets continue to do good today, and tommorrow even more, together.
Data lake – it’s a big, partially structured and differently structured set of data from your association that you can use to answer interesting questions. Think of it like throwing everything in your pantry into one magical cauldron and it comes back with answers. Of course be careful what you ask, as SECURITY IS ALWAYS JOB 1! But it’s cool.
Luckily Tendenci as your AMS makes this a whole lot easier with all of the ways to import and export data (or your whole database.) And pretty much every report has a structured export as well, from custom forms, donations, event registrations, memberships, you name it. You have FULL ACCESS to YOUR DATA in both flat files and in the actual database schema. For example:
You can see more screen shots of the built in reporting within Tendenci. Yet let’s be realistic, you are integrating data from many sources and a Data Lake including but not limited to your data on Tendenci might be just the thing. Contact us for more, because we LOVE DATA!
And we’ve got over 20+ years of experience to back it up.
Why not make 2020 the banner year to grow your membership and donations? Because that’s what we THRIVE ON! YOUR SUCCESS!
To our Tendenci clients, you are changing the world. It has been a privilege to be a leader for the company and the community, and I thank you all for the opportunity.
It is with mixed emotions that I say that last Friday December 6, 2019, was my last official day with Tendenci. I say “official” because you never really leave a community that you care deeply about. (And don’t worry, Ed is still guiding the ship with the help of a strong team.)
I have been an avid part of the growth of Tendenci from a small, proprietary software product launched almost twenty years ago into the global, multilingual, open source resource it is today. My enthusiasm for Tendenci is as strong now as ever. And I’m proud of what we have accomplished.
I have truly enjoyed working with so many great people over the years, both the amazing employees who feed my soul and the wealth of Tendenci users who keep me challenged. Software, like a garden, is never finished. It is designed, built, tended, and constantly improved. Keeping things fresh, adding new functionality, and building on the latest technology are the core of a thriving environment.
To everyone I have worked with, keep moving forward. I know there are great things ahead for you and all of the Tendenci community!
Feel free to connect with me (Rachel on linkedin) as I move forward knowing Tendenci is in good hands and our clients are safe and growing! I will still be in the background keeping Ed in line and celebrating the future successes of Tendenci and the community as they happen. Rock on y’all!
(Editor “Ed” notes: THANK YOU RACHEL FOR YOUR HUGE CONTRIBUTION TO OUR GLOBAL GROWTH!)
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.
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!
“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 also needs freedom. When a program has an owner, the users lose freedom to 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.
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. Transparency 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.
OUR MISSION IS TO CONNECT AND ORGANIZE THE WORLD’S PEOPLE. DO GOOD.

Rapid Growth Factors in the Global AMS Software Market
In addition, the market is growing at a fast pace and the report shows us that there are a couple of key factors behind that. The most important factor that’s helping the market grow faster than usual is the tough competition.
