How you helped shape Wild Apricot
By Dmitry Buterin, Founder and Chief Apricot
Wild Apricot’s functionality has grown year after year due in large part to our customers (you!). You may not even know it, but you have shaped the course of Wild Apricot.
Let me rewind.
Wild Apricot had humble beginnings. We started with a small staff of only 3 people in a tiny space in Toronto. Today, we have over 85 employees in Toronto and Moscow who work virtually round the clock to improve our product, simplifying the management of small membership organizations everywhere.
What are you doing with all your member's information? How are you collecting, analyzing and using this data to grow your membership?
We've invited Wes Trochlil (Effective Database Management) for a special Q & A session on how to strategically use your database to grow your membership, raise more revenue and improve your events and communications with members.
By the end of this webinar, you will learn:
What is a database
Why is having a membership database important - what does it allow you to do that you couldn’t do before?
How can a membership database help you achieve your organizational mission & goals
This is your chance to ask an expert your database questions! We'll be using a question and answer format for this webinar so come prepared with your questions or share them in your registration form below and we’ll ask Wes Trochlil during the webinar.

Introducing the Wild Apricot Podcast
At Wild Apricot, we are proud of the fact that we’ve built great relationships with the non-profit, association and membership organization communities. It is our goal to pull together great resources to benefit volunteers, staff members and organization leaders everywhere.
That's why we’ve created a Podcast!
We plan to pack each episode with great resources, information and insights, and I’m sure that anyone associated with a membership organization, will find some value.
Here are highlights of our 1-On-1 interview with Joe Bednar of the Syracuse University Whitman Alumni Club of New York City. Joe offers insight on how to deliver great value to recruit, engage and retain members.
Nonprofits, associations and clubs are all looking for sponsors to help them meet their mission. So we asked cause marketing expert, Joe Waters, to present a webinar to offer up some tips to help us build “win-win” partnerships with sponsors.
