Per requests and ideas from members, I started up this blog to:

  1. Make it easier for anyone to find out about our group – especially nonprofit folks considering or just getting started.
  2. Provide a publicly searchable space for anyone to post resources, announcements and how to’s. We’re committed to utilizing the Power of Us Hub, but this site may be easier for some members to publish existing documentation and resources to. We will then post links with an FYI on the “master” Power of Us Hub resource.

If you’re interested in contributing, it’s easy! Email dcusergroup (at) gmail (dot) come or tweet me at @salesforcedc and I’ll create a user account for you to author blog posts.
