The AWC Website has a new Member area! What has changed?
- The new website member management system is called Wild Apricot and works differently than what we had before. Many of the behind the scenes operations which changed affect how the membership, calendar, events and payment appear and work.
- New User ID’s and passwords were issued in early December
- Members now have an upgraded My Member Profile page with more options including the ability to view your specific events and payments and add a profile photo or avatar.
- Members may add themselves to different Group mailing lists such as Walkie Talkies, Book Club, WWDP, etc.
- The new membership application form and process will now be handled via Wild Apricot.
- All membership payments, membership renewals, event payments, invoices, etc. will be handled directly on your My Member Profile page.
- Event managers can manage their own calendar events and send out communications to event participants. Plus, view and manage attendee lists.
- Group managers can send out communications to their group members such as Walkie Talkies, Lunch Bunch, Heart Pillow, etc.
- Event and group managers will be able to better manage their activities and email communications to attendees and group members.
- The Finance team can manage all payment processing more efficiently and accurately
- The Membership team can manage membership processing and information much, much faster & easier. 🙂
NEW FEATURES AND TIPS
