Subject:   [september17discuss] Salsa is offering their CRM tool

Hey all...

I just joined the list and plan to introduce myself. But I learned something and wanted to get it in the right hands - it's unclear what that means!

Salsa is a Constituent Relationship Manager. It is used by political groups and nonprofits on the progressive side of the fence. They would like to offer use if this product to Occupy Wall Street for free. It's a great tool that I'm familiar with - it does email blasting, list building, integrates with fundraising pages, signups, advocacy actions, letters to the editor, events management, etc.

Folks might have various opinions about using this. My question is: which group or committee is qualified to make a decision on such a thing on behalf of 'Occupy Wall Street'?

I beg forgiveness if this was discussed previously - the NYCGA site didn't include any mention of it that I could find, so it seemed a bit like an orphan issue.

Thanks in advance,

Charles Lenchner
