Meeting Registration Simplified: Using RegOnline to Soar Above the Clouds
MetadataShow full item record
During Spring 2007 the SCC Registration Task Force investigated options for improving the collection and management of the Chapter's annual meeting registrations and events. After reviewing several software products, the task force eventually selected RegOnline (http://www.regonline.com) as the most likely to meet the Chapter's needs, and the SCC/MLA Executive Board approved the use of RegOnline during the 2007 Annual Meeting in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The 2008 Local Arrangements Committee was the first to configure and use the software, which has simplified the management of meeting registrations. Many routine tasks that had been performed manually or required extensive modifications are now performed almost automatically. Total attendance figures for registration categories and events are now visible at a glance. Custom views can be quickly created using filters and reports to share information with other committee members. Accounting tasks are handled seamlessly through simple HTML views, and all transactions can be easily exported as Excel files. Attendees at this session will get an inside look at the registration system and its various functions. Future meeting planners are strongly encouraged to attend.
