There is a similar thread (https://forums.wildapricot.com/forums/308932-wishlist/suggestions/9949890-membership-renewal-when-registering-for-an-event) that I commented on, but I don't know that our suggestions are totally the same.
Right now, we are unable to integrate membership renewal and new membership into event registrations. We have tons of lapsed memberships this year seemingly due to the fact that we had separate membership renewal and event registration. People didn't renew before registering or were unable to find the membership form (which is no fault of WA). Anyways, it would be awesome if membership renewal could be integrated into an event registration form and membership could be updated automatically when someone registers for an event. We integrated membership into registration for our annual conference 2 years ago, but we had to manually update memberships based on what people paid for during registration. The current system is very inconvenient and not conducive to a good user experience (on either the admin or the member sides).Crystal commented
We had so many lapsed memberships this year due to the separation of membership renewal and event registration. In the past, we lumped both together, but we had to manually update memberships (such a hassle!). It would be soooo awesome if we could lump event registration with membership renewal/new membership so our members and event attendees could complete everything in one transaction and their membership would be updated automatically.
I merged another very similar thread into this one, they should be solved together – the registration to multiple events should be simple and fast if possible. There are a number of suggestions in comments on how to achieve this.
