The Bluegrass IIBA Chapter website will be changing over the next few months. We are moving from one association management software service (Wild Apricot) to another one (Membernova). Please note that our domain name, https://bluegrass.iiba.org, IS NOT CHANGING. The thing our community will notice is a new look and feel. It will definitely be a more modern look.
The main reason driving this change is cost savings; however, the chapter will receive some feature enhancements as well. Work has begun on this effort with a target to go live on the new platform in very early in the first quarter of 2024.
Some advantages our community will receive from this move:
- More people will receive our newsletter, The Bluegrass IIBA Monthly Digest, and other chapter communications. For many years we have been trimming our contact list defined on our Wild Apricot account so that we don't have to pay Wild Apricot a lot more money each month for the service. Moving to Membernova removes that limit on our contact list.
- We will reduce the number of pages on our website. The pages that we intend to remove are the infrequently visited pages, so they should not be missed.
- Members will notice single sign-on capability. You will login to the Bluegrass IIBA Chapter website using your international IIBA login credentials. No separate login credentials any longer.
- We will continue to have a Members-only section of our website.
Our chapter leaders are learning the new system. We plan that not much work will be done around Thanksgiving and the last couple of weeks of December so that our chapter leaders may enjoy the holidays with their families. We will migrate member and contact data to the new platform; then go live with our new website.
