    April 2021 newsletter / Bulletin pour Avril 2021

    Events Feature

    This month’s topic is the events feature on our new site.  Events setup is intended for the launch organizer within each club to manage, this is a special role that is assigned by CAR/ACF.  A few clubs have their own methods for registration and payments and this feature in not here to replace but to supplement if you choose to use it.

    So why use the CAR/ACF events feature,

    • Front page listing on the CAR/ACF site
    • Add description and links to Club pages for more information
    • RSVP to gauge event interest
    • Event manager can manage RSVP registrants
    • Auto Announcement emails to CAR/ACF members
    • RSVP registrant’s reminder emails (only to RSVP registrants for changes and cancellations)
    • The event registration will show up on the members profile

    Support Page is here:

    https://support.wildapricot.com/hc/en-us/articles/360055873993-Setting-up-a-simple-event-RSVP-only-

    If you are interested, please contact HQ@canadianrocketry.org to get setup. 

    Next newsletter, how to use the album feature and get those pictures onto the home page.

    CAR/ACF is looking for someone with CSS and Java script experience and willing to volunteer some time with MUCH gratitude from the executive.  Why? we are setting up a bilingual site, much if not all the code to do this is available through our hosting service but not the work to implement. 

    We also need translation support for the web pages if you can provide some time, it would be very much appreciated!!

    Fonctionnalité des événements

    Notre sujet pour le mois d’Avril est la fonctionnalité “Events/Evénements” du nouveau site Internet.  La possibilité de créer des événements est prévue pour les organisateurs de lancements de chaque club, et c’est un rôle spécial qui est assigné aux membres éligibles par CAR/ACF.  Certains clubs possèdent leurs propres méthodes d’inscription et de paiements.  La fonctionnalité du site Internet de CAR/ACF n’est pas là pour remplacer les méthodes de chaque club, mais peut être un ajout utile si vous choisissez de l’utiliser.

    Pourquoi utiliser la fonctionnalité “Events/Evénements” du site de CAR/ACF?

    • Votre événement sera présent sur la page principale du site de CAR/ACF
    • Votre événement peut inclure un descriptif et des hyper-liens vers les pages de votre club
    • Une fonction d’inscription (RSVP) qui permet de juger de l’intérêt pour l’événement
    • Le gestionnaire de l’événement peut gérer les membres inscrits
    • Le site peut envoyer des courriels automatiques aux membres inscrits (pour les informer des changements et annulations)
    • Les inscriptions aux événements apparaissent sur la page de Profil des membres

    Voici la page de support pour la fonction Evénements:

    https://support.wildapricot.com/hc/en-us/articles/360055873993-Setting-up-a-simple-event-RSVP-only-

    Si vous êtes intéressé à créer des événements, veuillez contacter HQ@canadianrocketry.org pour que la fonction soit activée pour votre compte. 

    Dans le prochain bulletin, nous verrons comment utiliser la fonction Album pour ajouter des photos sur la page principale du site Internet.

    CAR/ACF recherche un volontaire avec de l’expérience CSS et JavaScript pour participer aux activités techniques sur le site Internet.  Pourquoi? Nous allons ajouter le bilinguisme, beaucoup du code nécessaire est disponible via notre hébergeur, mais il y a du travail à faire pour l’implémentation.

    Nous avons également besoin du support pour la traduction des pages web en Français. Si vous avez des disponibilités, ce serait très apprécié!

    Now that we have moved to the new membership site there are a few new things members can try out.  Over the next months, we will be sharing what they are and how to use them these quick newsletters. 

    First up

    So, what is up with this Wild Apricot thing?  Wild Apricot is our new service provider for web services, membership database, events calendar, and other features.   One feature, WA has developed an app that links to your information and fellow rocketeers.  Changed your email, now you can update that. 

    For iOS and for Android.  Have a look at the Wild Apricot Blog:  

    https://www.wildapricot.com/blog/member-app

    With the app and on your profile page in any browser, your CAR/ACF card can be accessed, printed, or just used via the app to show your membership status, certification level, and RI level.  This is a replacement for the plastic cards that have been sent out over the last few years. 

    Next Month

    Next newsletter will be using the Events Page to highlight your event, track who is interested in attending and communicating with those members. 

    Thanks

    David Buhler

    Hi All

    Yes I have to change the administrator name but the great news, a new membership processing site is here!!  Coupled with a new look and feel for the webpages. 

    The old CARWeb will transform to this site soon.  Sadly though,  Shane's work with built-in automation for document management and auto update of content with bulk data and integrated forum access will be missed.  

    The rational for this change was to automate the membership processing side of the house, which for the most part has not changed since the year 2000.  Some automation has happened, yes but I still get paper, process it and send out paper. 

    I hope you like the changes and please provide feedback to the Exec on these changes .

    David CAR/ACF Secretary Treasurer
