    Hello Scandi Club Members!

    The Scandinavian Club of Columbus board has been hard at work investigating and testing potential replacements to Member Planet that will be easier to use and easier for us to administer and maintain.

    We have identified an excellent replacement, Wild Apricot, that will allow for special interest groups to post their events and to give YOU access to see your payments to the club and an option to auto-renew your membership each year via electronic payment. There’s a lot of good things about this replacement, including the ability to keep our website and events in one place and better newsletters.

    The purchase, if we buy before mid-June for two years, will be a total of $1,020 which represents a difference of $180+ above what we would pay for  Member Planet for the same period. We believe this is worth the cost for a better-paid member experience.

    We want to give members a chance to let us know if there is a concern before finalizing. We are happy to answer any questions you may have. Please email concerns prior to 5/17.



    Warmly,
    The Board of Scandinavian Club of Columbus
