Registration Switch to RegOnline
Based on the success of registration during the recent Joint Engineering Training Symposium, our directors have voted to implement the same system, RegOnline, for monthly membership meetings. What does this mean to members? The most obvious change is the log-in screen and the elimination of the PayPal step. Other enhancements include: 1)Access to mobile registration, schedules, maps, and surveys; 2) The ability to browse directories and exchange personal information with QR (Quick Response) codes, without downloading a new app; and 3) Integration with social communities, such as: Twitter, Facebook, and Yelp!
For our directors RegOnline tabulates registrants and payments, in addition to printing name badges, thereby requiring less legwork in planning and executing each meeting. One disadvantage is that cancellations will now be charged a $5 fee; however, we feel that minor charge is worth the switch for this new, improved mode of operation. Hopefully you will agree!
So look for our new on-line registration process beginning with our December 18, 2013 networking session meeting!
The Student Mentoring Committee is seeking volunteers for the Baltimore Post Speaker's Bureau to speak to students at schools in the region about a career in STEM. For more details on the request, please consult the flyer and then complete the sign-up form if you can volunteer.
