Websites For Associations, Clubs and Organisations
One of the biggest issues facing any membership-based organisation is the administration of membership records and the delivery of information, products and services back to members and stakeholders. At Halcyon Daze, we can provide your organisation with the very latest web-based applications to address these issues. No matter how big or small your organisation is, it is now possible to provide your members with the very latest web-based services that will –
- make life much easier in the administration of your membership and at the same time
- deliver up to date content, information and on-line services back to your stakeholders.
A Typical Scenario
Generic database software, like Microsoft Excel and Access, are a big improvement over paper records but they weren't designed specifically for associations, clubs and other groups for maintaining membership records. You need to invest time of staff and volunteers to keep it up-to-date, clean of duplicates and synchronised with other systems - website, email newsletter service, event registration and so on. Typically, administrators face these common hurdles:
- Ongoing struggle to ensure data is consistent in a single 'master' list
- Multiple copies of contact lists being updated by several people at the same time - making the reconciliation a nightmare and figuring out which members are fully up-to-date downright impossible
- Combing through emails, faxes and payment slips to reconcile registrations and payments
- There are numerous duplicates and outdated records in the list.
A New Era
Halcyon Daze can provide your organisation with a complete, all-in-one web-based application to store member records as part of your website. Halcyon Daze's member database is automatically integrated with your website along with many other organising and communication tools. Manual administration of your membership records will become a thing of the past:
Here's how Halcyon Daze can free you from the limitations of your old membership management database:
- Each event registration is automatically linked to the member record and contact information is pre-filled. Members automatically get the right pricing based on the membership level
- New members are automatically granted access to appropriate website functions - and lapsed members are locked out
- Once an online member application form is submitted and dues are paid, the record appears automatically in your member database (and you get a notification) · Each member can go to your website and securely login to update their own contact information, register for events, renew and pay membership dues
- Current members have access to a private website area (member intranet) where you can provide valuable resources for your members and enable them to interact via discussion forums and blogs
- Put up a member directory page on your website - either for the general public to look up your current members - or a private one for members
- Automatically send event notices, confirmations and renewal reminders to your members
- Quickly reach out and contact your whole membership or any selected group via a built-in email tool.
