If you are considering Drupal, or are just getting started with your implementation, then this session is the perfect place for you to start. We'll cover how and why open source CMS's and, in particular, Drupal, are particularly suited for nonprofits. Then, we'll talk about the key out-of-the-box functionality and design best practices to help you get your version set up correctly, right from the start. We'll cover key Drupal concepts, such as theme, module, and database, to help you better interact with the Drupal community.
(Please note this is the first part of a 4-part Webinar Series: Drupal for Nonprofit Decision Makers.)
