Membership renewal when registering for an event
Hi, we're just into our second year with wild apricot and our members are starting to renew their memberships and register for this season's events. We ran the memberships yearly expiring on Aug 31 2015, so all are expired now. Most people took the hint to renew their membership when registering for an event in 2016, but somehow some paid for just the new events but didn't renew their membership. I have the setting somewhere (can't find it now) that they can register for multiple events and then pay at the end. Is there a setting somewhere I'm missing to make them pay for the membership renewal at the same time they pay for the events? Or is that a feature that would be for the wishlist?
We also allow our members to pay for the following year's membership while registering for our Fall Conference. Our conference is in Sept or Oct and our membership runs Jan 1 - Dec 31. They are paying ahead. Registrants who are not in our system are prompted to join membership during the registration process. Is there a way to also prompt contacts in our system who are NOT current members AND current members to join/renew during the event registration process?
We have used a strategy for many years of including a year's membership with the paid attendance of our symposium. With Wild Apricot, I have to manually renewal all atendees. I wish that a field could be added to automatically extend the membership a year.
