The Twin Cities
Chapter has begun another journey into the electronic age!
We have recently signed up with Wild Apricot, a web based
system that can host our web-site, allow us to receive
electronic registrations, and give each member of our chapter
access to chapter information. In the coming months we will
begin the process of transferring our information onto the
web-site starting with a small test group. We will remind you
(via articles in Pipenotes and on the web-site) when you
can expect the transfer to the new system to be complete.
happen when this new system is available? Many of you will see
very little change. Once you have been entered into the system,
however, you will receive an e-mail giving you information about
logging into the web site. With this information you will be
able to access your information, and change it at will. Much
like other social media, you will have the ability to add a
photo to your profile. You will also be able to look up other
members. The entire database will be password protected, so that
only members will be able to look up information. The ability to
change your profile will be limited to the registrar and
yourself. Only you will have your password. The registrar does
not have access to this information.
In coming years
renewal reminders will be sent out automatically via e-mail. You
will have the option of paying online (using Paypal) or sending
a check as you have done in the past. We will also have the
ability to register for special events (and pay for them)
online. We look forward to the flexibility and accessibility
this new system will offer our membership.
