Membee was pleased to be invited to attend the Ontario Membee User Group Spring 2011 meeting held in Guelph, Ontario in April. Membee staff presented a quick overview of new features and answered questions about recent enhancements to the online directory.  Also covered were changes to Default Email Templates and the Batch Membership Management report and some suggestions were offered for how these could help cut down on paper processes and minimize time spent on day to day management of member records.

One of the favorite (at least for us!) sessions is the interactive user feedback session.  The meeting was split into small working groups to generate ideas for enhancements and improvements. Each working group prioritized their ideas and presented what they considered to be their most exciting, important, or urgent change to the group.  Everyone then had an opportunity to vote for their favorite idea. Some of these favorite ideas will result in future changes to  Membee.  We know that the best ideas come from you – our users!

The meeting also gave us an opportunity to give the group a sneak peek at some of the new things currently being developed or soon to be added to Membee. We were glad to hear that the group approves of our plans.

This self-organized and self-run user group meets twice each year in the spring and fall to share best practice ideas and to network with other Membee users from the Province of Ontario.  The group has plans to meet again in the fall on October 27th and 28th.  If you are an Ontario Membee user who is interested in attending please let us know and we will forward your contact information to the group.
