The topics discussed here grow out of the bread-and-butter issues that confront my consulting and software clients on a daily basis. We'll talk about prosaic stuff like Membership Management, Meetings and Events Management and Fundraising, broader ideas like security and software project management, and the social, cultural, and organizational issues that impact IT decision-making.

Its official!

Last year at the NTC conference in Seattle we met some folks developing some innovative web products right around the corner from us in DC. Over the intervening year we've had countless meetings, IMs, lunches, dinners, brainstormng sessions and afterwork drinks. And today we are announcing a strategic partnership with Orchid Suites.

Here's the announcement copied from the Members Only website.

Members Only Software, Inc is pleased to announce that we have entered into a strategic alliance with Orchid Suites Inc., a D.C. based developer of Content-Management and Community-Building Tools.

"This alliance enhances Orchid’s ability to deliver best-in-class integrated online management tools for communications." said Tanya Renne, Orchid Suites CEO.

The view from the Members Only side of table: this partnership will allow us not only to provide our users with a state-of-the art CMS system, but one that will be closely integrated with the entire suite of Members Only products, allowing an organization to tie its web presence to its basic operational activities. Doria Howe, our Marketing Director, adds

"Orchid Suites is more than a traditional CMS - it's a web-suite technology with collaborative tools that are very exciting for Non-Profits. They allow organizations with multiple chapters or interest groups to have integrated sub-sites, while organization staff can easily take control of look, feel and content."

The first product to emerge from this partnership, the Orchid Suites - Members Only Link, will make it a snap for our users to give their constituents access to a wide range of Members Only activities on their Orchid-based website, including profile management, event registration and online donations. Orchid is able to do this by supporting the Members Only API, which allows software developers to access a wide range of Members Only functionality from other applications.

The Orchid Suites - Members Only Link will debut at NTC 2007, a national conference for non-profit technology to be held in Washington, April 4-7,2007. D.C. For more info visit
