A CiviCRM user and administration training in Toronto has just been announced for Nov 14-15, here:
If, like most people including myself, you wish you understood a bit more about this multi-headed beast called CiviCRM, then this should be a great opportunity.
If you've grown a little complacent with your CiviCRM install, this is a great place to learn about all the new things you can do with it, and hear what others like you are already doing. Non-profit types already know that community is an essential part of success and sustainability, and events like this put that into practice within the CiviCRM ecosystem.
In addition, there's a developer training and a 'code sprint', for the weeks following.
And it reminds me that it's past time to publish a new civicrm integration module I wrote this year.
Thanks to Joe Murray and Louis-Charles Lavallee for getting this going!
