[ASC-list] The ASC office and you

Hi Susan,

Automation: slowly but surely!

Members can now manage most of their membership and contact details
including retrieving invoices and renewing online at:
http://community.asc.asn.au/

Renewal reminders are now also automated and members will be reminded that
their renewal is due in the lead up to their expiration date as long as
their email address is current!

Unfortunately the lists and posting to the ASC website still require a
little manual intervention.

For the online community software we have begun the process by inviting
members of the state branch committees to test out some of the features. As
we get our heads around how that all works and iron out any bugs, there
will be invitations out into the broader membership community.

Cheers,


Kali
