Membership Management Software for Organisations: How to Tame the Paper Jungle


How Member Organisations can Tame the Paper Jungle 

Tame the jungle. Herd cats. Drain the swamp. These sayings are what you often hear when people start talking about their admin duties for their club, association, or group.

What seems like a few hours a week soon mushrooms into a part-time job. Somehow your passion project turned into the drudgery of spreadsheet updates, membership notifications, and, that most dreaded task of them all, bookkeeping.

Membership groups are challenged by recruiting volunteers to manage their events and organise their back-end administration. Working behind-the-scenes is, well, behind-the-scenes. That means the administrative work is largely unrecognised and it competes with work, family, and all the other stuff that is your life.   

Effective Administration = Effective Organisation

Like any worthwhile endeavour, the devil is in the details. This means addressing the myriad of activities that translate into an active, enthusiastic, and dynamic club.

The details include signing up new members, renewing existing members, reminding members old and new about dues and fees as well as collecting those fees. You might even want to publish a directory of members online to facilitate communications and promote their affiliation to the community.

Your member directory would probably appear on your website that allows people to learn about your organisation, sign-up for membership or events, as well as see some of your previous activities. You might even sell merchandise emblazoned with your group’s logo.

Of course, the whole thing should look great on your mobile device.

Wouldn’t It Be Great if Someone Built a Platform for Clubs that Does all the Hard Stuff

The good news is we did!
