Well....the move to the NEW 'WildApricot Membership Management' web presence went EXTREMELY WELL!
On Friday, February 19, 2016 at 5:00 PM we had the URL for prairiestatecanoeists.org switched to point to the new location and made the final changes for PayPal. It took a couple of hours for everything to complete the transition and the system started sending automated messages overnight.
During the week before, we had imported 290 members and manually added 36 trips that had been on the previous site.
Members were already using the new site before the notice went out to all members via the email feature on the website on Sunday evening. Another targeted email was sent to 49 members who were Lapsed (expired) when the membership list was imported. This contained details on how to go online and pay their dues since the system missed the 60 day window for sending the automated notices.
Next items...are get the Blogs up and running, update the older content and add more pictures! We will also be getting the new pages completed and send out a notice to members to GO VOTE on the WildApricot's website for them to deploy the ability for members to create their own events directly!
We are fine-tuning our formatting and processes but most of the Administrators and Coordinators have been trained and are actively working...WHAT A TEAM!!!!!
