Event Management

Use our association event registration software to integrate the registration process within the website to increase member participation. When people don't have to be shuffled off to a 3rd party page to process payment for dues or event fees, they feel safer to complete the event registration process. Simple step-by-step check out forms collect the information needed, and registrants have a clear understanding of the process.

Name Badges & Labels

Creating name badges and labels for the next event doesn't have to be a headache. Print out name badges and labels with StarChapter in just seconds. Are you still exporting lists of names to be merged into a document for badges only to find out when you are done that 3 more need to be printed or that a long name doesn't fit? So frustrating! Not anymore with StarChapter you will use our PDF generator in our event registration tool to easily print badges that are formatted for common badge layouts.

Flexible Ticketing Options

Set up event tickets with simple member and non-member rates, the chapter's golf outing with foursomes and twosomes, or even the yearly banquet tickets to sell tables of 5 or 10. Create tickets with questions to select meal choices, desired speakers, or topics of interest to them for future events all through the setup of the event registration. Some chapters use this opportunity to also ask questions unrelated to their events: on guest tickets you can ask, "Are you interested in becoming a member?" or on member tickets you can ask, "Are you interested in volunteering?" StarChapter will save you even more time as you can save ticket structures as templates to be used for future events.

Auto-Archive Events

Your website will update itself without you having to lift a finger. StarChapter's event registration software will automatically move chapter's past events to archives and brings in the next meeting to promote and advertise on the website. Your website will always be updated and will never promote events that have come and gone. The archive is also a great marketing tool essentially giving you a portfolio of events to share with prospective members.

Board & Management

Let different users utilize the software based on their roles, tasks, and responsibilities. Whether you are a president or a treasurer, an AMC or a paid admin, you'll find the right tools and reports to make your job much easier and get lasting results. 

Board Management

[ ]

President

Presidents of local chapters ensure that things run smoothly throughout their term. The success measured at the end of their term is based on ensuring that budgets are set and met, membership increases, members see value in membership, and that meeting attendance and revenues increase. StarChapter is designed to help presidents achieve these goals and beyond with special tracking and reports.

Treasurer

Treasurers expect to put in a lot of time to fulfill their volunteer duties. Often this is accepted as a fact and there is no way to change it. But with StarChapter, treasurers benefit from years of experience and knowledge in various-sized membership associations. All of this knowledge has been collected and put to use in the design of StarChapter and what it can do.

Webmaster

Traditionally webmasters needed to know web languages such as HTML and CSS, but it is hard to find a pool of people with these skills in organizations. Using StarChapter, any board member can manage the website without having any previous technical knowledge. The site is self-managed by taking advantage of StarChapter's Services such as our self-help Knowledgebase and Ongoing Board Training webinars.

Membership Chair

Healthy chapters rely on organized and accurate membership data and contact information. If your membership chair is spending a lot of time keeping contact information up-to-date and accurate, importing and exporting the data from one spreadsheet to another, and having to manually keep track of who is expiring and when, there is a better way. With StarChapter, membership chairs spend less time doing these repetitive tasks and get better insights to share with the board.

Programs & Events Chair

Easily manage all of your event information from start to finish. Add in meeting details only once, and the website will be updated. You can auto-archive past events and allow online event registration, tracking, badges, invoices, receipts, reports and more. Your StarChapter website will become the repository for all your events, producing a long and rich historical archive to document the value of membership.

Education Chair

Keep track of attendance at events that offer continuous educational credits. Run reports and upload educational materials with member-only access. You will no longer have to wait for others to update the website, send out invitations, or access and archive the educational material of your organization.
