Fresh drupal install with base civicrm now available at
http://lacrm.mjec.net/ (Drupal 7; let me know if there's an issue with

Account signup is open, and everyone is welcome to help out; shoot me an
email off-list and I'll grant whatever extra privielges you need.

Happy to do as you describe.

This would be excellent.

The key thing for me would be to understand what data we currently have (a
sql schema if one exists), what data we need and what we'd like to be able
to track.

CivCRM comes with member signup (linked to drupal accounts or not),
self-service updating of details, automatic membership expiry (with
reminders), recording contacts, groups etc etc. There's a huge amount of
functionality built-in. I think the important part is figuring out what
functionality we want in and what we want out. This isn't a technical
question, and it's a matter really for the Council/secretary to determine.

Lots of detail is important too: on signup do we want to collect
mailing/physical addresses? Should this be required or optional? Do we
limit countries to Australia and NZ, or do we permit any country? How does
this link in to Zookeepr; what data do we want to share? Do we want sync
between CRM entries and drupal accounts? Wiki accounts?

These detail questions are the sorts of things that might be better for a
"committee" to discuss, rather than the linux-aus list as a whole.

Upshot is: happy to push this.
