We recently helped a small association utilize an off-the-shelf solution to better manage membership and connect members to each other. The West Suburban Philanthropic Network provides guidance, networking opportunities, and education for professionals working for non-profit organizations. On the new website we used web host Wild Apricot. All the functionality to manage membership, events and communication are built right into the monthly fee. The solution has all the functionality of a big association at a fraction of the cost to develop and run. For an organization like WSPN, it was a perfect solution.
