Event Registration Type - add option to exclude members
Right now, you can select “everyone” or a breakdown of members. It would be helpful to have an option of “everyone except members”.

For this to really work, contacts should be required to set up login credentials in order to register for an event. Otherwise, it could be easier for a non-member to register for event than for a member to do so.
We have a policy to bifurcate our event registrations between members and non-members: we invite a limited number of the public to be guests at large of the organization or the group of members hosting the event, rather than as the particular guest of an identified member. This is to encourage non-members to participate in organization activities, thereby encouraging them to become members.
The only way that we can do that now is to offer both a Members registration type and an Everyone registration type. Then we have to beg members to register using the Members registration type. This is an awkward request, partly because we have to put the request in writing that the member not use the Everyone membership type, and also because members have to login to their accounts while non-members don't have to login in order to register for the event.
A non-member registration type would best be set up to require that the registrant either has login credentials and must use them to register for the event, or for a new contact, they must create those credentials at the time of registering for the event.
This would be a very useful feature for any organization that wishes to include a limited number of at-large persons from the public in membership events.
