 WAVE Quarterly Meeting took place on Monday, January 11, 2016 

We were treated to a very engaging talk by Peter Davis, a playwright and director.  He provided many helpful thoughts on how to develop an organizations story and value proposition.  Many of the things he described as benefits to your organization can be found here.  Two new board members were elected.  Minutes will be posted when available

WAVE Discussion Forum

Hear ye, hear ye!  The WAVE Discussion Forum is now operating. It is titled Discussion and located under the Groups tab above.

You do not need to have a user ID and password to be able to read and to post on the forum.  If you have a user ID and password and sign in, you can access the forum and post new topics or respond to existing topics without the need for completing those pesky questions at the end that prove you are a human.  There are several questions already posted on planned giving, subsidized memberships, volunteer recruitment, and intergenerational memberships.

The Tech Discussion forum is a restricted forum specifically for dealing with administrative software.  We have two projects going (VillageConnect and Village Stand-alone Database) which will use the forum to share experiences, questions and support.  You must have a user ID and request participation in that from the WAVE technology team.
