Groups and committees are at the heart of most of membership organisations and associations. However, managing group members and communication between them can be a challenging task, and many membership management systems do not provide adequate support in this area. Our smartgroups module, which of course shares data seamlessly with smartmembership, smartcms and all our other modules, allows organisations to manage group members & roles, including permissions for online collaboration as well as defining different communication channels for different roles. It also includes a drag and drop calendar and integration with Outlook for ease of tracking.

Functionality includes:

  • Managing the roles and membership of the group/committee, including election
  • Meeting set up
  • Notification of members
  • Distribution of papers prior to the meetings
  • Recording attendance and meeting activities
  • Providing group access to records/minutes etc.
  • Automated processes for managing lapsing or lapsed members
