Last week was big. We're thrilled NationalField is joining the NGP VAN family, and can't wait to see what the future holds. Find out what others are saying about this exciting acquisition in the roundup below.
Friends – I’m elated to tell you that NationalField is becoming part of NGP VAN. I imagine some of you are saying, “It’s about damn time!” or “Duh!” And, frankly, that’s what got us to this point. As we discussed joining forces, we realized how natural it was to fold the NationalField tool that makes organizing teams more efficient into the company that already serves most Democratic and Progressive organizing teams through our VAN product.
As an Account Executive, it is always great to see your clients doing well. Recently, we noticed one of my clients using my favorite tool to do something awesomely creative and fun. In the holiday spirit I wanted to share this neat trick one campaign is using to collect some treats. By treats I mean donations. Stay with me.
State Rep. Brian Sims was the first openly gay candidate to be elected to the Pennsylvania House of Representatives. It is a big point of pride for me to count him as one of my clients because of who he is and what he stands for.

There is an endless list of benefits for countless Americans as a result of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) that have already taken effect: no-cost wellness exams, coverage for those with pre-existing conditions, and the ability for children to stay on their parent’s insurance until their 26th birthday.
There has been a lot of tension regarding the situation in Syria. With so many strong feelings involved, it can be tough for our representatives to gauge where their constituents stand. That’s why Rep. Tulsi Gabbard from Hawai’i’s second congressional district caught our attention with this online form.
If you’re a frequent VAN user (you know the type – votebuilder.com still shows up among your most frequently visited pages, even months after a campaign), you’ve probably noticed the “preview our new look” button on the main screen. Have you taken a peek at what’s in store?
From time to time, we like to shine a spotlight on clients who use our tools really well. Just this week, we came across this form from the Mark Herring campaign that just. looks. GORGEOUS! This is a great example of a campaign taking advantage of our ability to add custom CSS to their forms to have a custom look and feel.
Recently Google introduced some new features to Gmail users. These features were designed to help users organize their inboxes. By default Google divded the Gmail inbox in to 3 tabs: "Primary,""Social," and "Promotons." Unfortunately, most email from mass email systems (like NGP) are automatically directed to the "Promotions" tab of a Gmail inbox.
