EXCITING NEWS for  all ASMC Washington Chapter Members

As of 1 October 2011, the ASMC Washington Chapter will implement a pilot online registration and payment program for our monthly luncheon meetings!!!!  This is an extension of the same system our members have been using to register for our annual March National Capital Region PDI as well as our annual Golf Tournament each July, so it should be fairly straight-forward for everyone!

The goals of this program are simple:  simplification, standardization, and auditability  - sound familiar?

This automated process will provide ease of registration and payment for members, efficiency for Board officials, improved internal controls,  and elimination of extensive manual processes [registration, check-in, payment and reconciliation] among others.  In implementing this capability, we are joining virtually other cohort associations who utilize technology to benefit member and organization.

This pilot will be in effect from October 2011 through February 2012, at which time it will be permanently implemented.  We are asking for your assistance and cooperation to USE THIS PROCESS and provide us with any feedback that will help us to refine it for permanent usage.  The monthly luncheon member fee remains $20 and non-member fee at $22.  This process will include a hotlink to encourage joining our terrific chapter!  Once the pilot is completed in February, there will be no more telephone or email registrations allowed.   After February 1, 2012, Walk-ins will be charged a $10 late fee for members and a $12 late fee for non-members.  Please plan ahead!”

Once you successfully register on line using the instructions below, you will receive an email confirmation that will serve as proof of payment and CPE credit.  Please bring this confirmation letter with you to check in the day of the luncheon – for the time being we will check off a master list of registrants.  In the future hopefully we can scan your confirmation.

If you need assistance or find you need to cancel your registration up to five days before the luncheon, you may contact the program administrator and receive a refund on your credit card.  Cancellations within two days of the luncheon forfeit any payment, as the chapter incurs the cost of the luncheon.

The primary Chapter POCs for this pilot are:
