Event Manager


Overview

The Event Manager allows for management of events that members can register for.  Here, you may email event attendees, manage registrations and the wait list. Information on attendees may also be exported for further management offline. The Event Manager allows for one point of entry for all registrations, so there is no need to keep a separate book for registration details.
