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. And it is especially in times like this, everyone needs to unite.
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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
“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?”
