As you know our chapter is about 2-1/2 years old. Since we became a part of CAS the state Board of Directors has been talking about then dropping then talking about . . . going to online membership management.
Well, CAS-GJ had such confusion going on with an overly complex spreadsheet as a management tool that we decided to just make the leap to doing that and other functions online.
It will take time, lots of effort on the part of our webpage designer, our Treasurer, another volunteer and myself. Lots of patience and understanding on the part of our membership will be needed and appreciated as we work up the systems, iron out the wrinkles and move through the first weeks, months (and maybe a year?) of adjustments, customizations and other details of this software that is used successfully by thousands of nonprofit organizations.
Please hang in there as we make this whole thing work. The development crew is working diligently and daily to get this functioning properly.
In the meantime you may have noticed the url that had accessed our meetup.com site -- www.cas-gj.org --- now gets you to this website. A new url --- www.cas-gjEvents.org --- takes you to the meetup page.
I could go on and on but . . . better to let you digest a little at a time.
With the weather beginning to cool off soon I'm looking forward to lots of field trips. I hope to see you there and at our monthly meetings.
