Gymnastics BC & Uplifter FAQ's

 

Productivity through proactivity - ways we're providing solutions to support our member clubs. 

Gymnastics BC is excited to announce Uplifter Inc. as our new official partner for club and member management software!

 

> What is happening / why are you moving to a new system?

As most of you know, the current Gymnastics BC membership database has been challenging for quite some time. We have researched many different database solutions and it is clear that there is not a 'one-size-fits-all' solution that will effectively service club operational needs as well as GBC member reporting and tracking needs. Because of this, we have focused our efforts on securing a database platform that will not affect club operations and will not require that clubs use it as their registration and program management platform.

> Will this affect my club?

GBC is moving to a new system for our own member tracking services. This does not affect how clubs report members to us; you will still be able to report to us using an excel spreadsheet, or you can choose to enter your members directly into Uplifter.

While Uplifter is designed to be used by clubs for daily club operations, GBC's transition does not mean that you are required to use it as well. In the coming years, we will be working to show you the benefits of using Uplifter, but the choice to do so will be entirely yours.

> What projects is Uplifter working on for GBC?
  1. New Member Registration System: We have been working with Uplifter since June 2018 to implement our new member registration system, which will help streamline annual member registrations. The new membership management database system will go live in September, 2019.
  2. Website Redesign: Recently, we also engaged Uplifter to redesign our website and simplify its usability. The website project is taking shape and will be complete by summer, 2019.
> What do I need to know about Uplifter?
