Over the course of several months the Board had searched for a low cost an online registration platform that would accept online payments. The Board formed a committee to research options to find the best solution for the best price.
The committee came back with the recommendation to move forward with Wild Apricot, identifying the following benefits:
- Low cost of $270 a year with no online payment transaction fees.
- Free website hosting
- Customizable event registration
- Ability to use our own domain (gosgmp.org)
- Additional features such as blog modules and e-mail blasts
- No contracts
Another perk of using Wild Apricot is they offered web hosting with the fee built into the $270 annual fee - meaning GOSGMP could discontinue our prior web hosting arrangement, equating to about a $168 savings. Hence, the new look to our website.
We hope that you find the new website useful and the online registration system convenient.
