Welcome to The FJMC Advantage, a monthly newsletter to help YOU build YOUR Clubs and Regions.
This Month's Theme:
A SPECIAL EDITION - THE NEW FJMC MEMBERSHIP INFORMATION SYSTEM
WHAT IS THE FJMC'S NEW MEMBERSHIP INFORMATION SYSTEM?
It is called Chaverot and it is the new club management web portal (fully compatible with Firefox, Chrome and Internet Explorer) which gives the officers of all FJMC affiliated clubs tools to maintain, update, and access their membership rosters in an easy and efficient way.
WHAT WILL IT DO FOR MY CLUB?
It will provide you with a database of your club's members accessible from any internet connected computer. It will also let you easily add new members with contact information; update, correct, or add e-mail or mailing addresses and other contact information on your roster for existing members; delete members from your roster with the ability to differentiate circumstances, such as death or moving that will remove an address from future contact rather than just not paying dues this year, so that the contact information is retained for future use by your club.
Keep in mind, this it only the beginning of the new club portal. Watch for information on new functions to allow you to be even more effective in communicating with your members.
WHAT WILL IT DO FOR THE FJMC?
To you, one of the most important things it will do for the FJMC is allow it to communicate more efficiently and accurately with you, your club officers, and your club members. It will also do many more things for the FJMC such as allowing it to gather information about member participation to help the regions and the FJMC focus on the needs of individual members.
WHO CAN USE IT?
Only Club Presidents, Co-Presidents and Club Treasurers are automatically given access to see and update club membership information, but they can also give authority to anyone they want (like a membership VP) to do so. In all likelihood, the FJMC and Chaverot already know who your club's President(s) and Treasurer are, but if not, send an email to email@example.com and someone from the IT Committee will contact you.
WHERE DO I FIND IT?
First and foremost you must log in to the FJMC site. Once you have done that, click on the "Clubs" tab, then on "Club Management." Here is a link (but it will only work if you have logged in).
HOW DO I USE IT?
Instructions were already sent out to all known Club Presidents, Co-Presidents and Treasures. However, if you did not receive them (or lost or deleted them), here is another copy of the instructions.
WHO CAN I ASK QUESTIONS OF?
Email your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
WHERE SHOULD I SEND COMMENTS, FEEDBACK, OR SUGGESTIONS?
WHY DID I RECEIVE SO MANY COPIES OF THIS MESSAGE?
The Advantage is in the process of moving over to the new database system and in the meantime, in order to make sure this message got to everyone it should, some of you may have gotten duplicate messages. The hard-working staff of the Advantage sincerely regrets any inconvenience this may have caused.
MAKE SURE YOU'VE MARKED YOUR CALENDARS!
