Need membership/registration alternative to WildApricot

  • 1.  Need membership/registration alternative to WildApricot

    Posted 28 days ago
    Hello affiliates -- here at MinnesotaTESOL (MinneTESOL) we have used Wild Apricot for several years for our membership and annual conference registration; however, we just found out that they are part of the NRA Business Alliance, which is a deal-breaker for us. Can any affiliates recommend an all-in-one conference registration and annual membership software? Thank you!

    Best,
    Kate

    Hi, Catherine,

    Hi, Kate,

    I was about to post Wild Apricot on my Facebook page as a company to boycott, but thought I would google the situation first.

    According to this article, the Personify Corporation, the parent company of Wild Apricot, has asked the NRA to remove Wild Apricot from its website. I just check the NRA site and Wild Apricot is still on it, but the article is from late Friday.

    Personify and Wild Apricot might be very grateful if MinneTESOL lets them know that NRA has not complied with their request, especially if you inform them about the actions your organization is taking with any company that has ties with the NRA.

    I applaud MinneTESOL for putting the heat on!
