Manage Your Registrations
The club's web site is structured for members to be able to manage their registrations for classes or other events by themselves. From previous experience, requests for cancellation and no-shows have been a problem.
Only the member and site administrator (me) can cancel the member's registration. Don't bother asking anyone else, and only ask me if you have really, really tried unsuccessfully.
No-shows have to stop. A no-show denies a waitlisted member the opportunity to attend the class.
Use the help documents to learn how to register for an event, view your registrations and cancel a registration. Consider using the Wild Apricot for members app.
The Wild Apricot for members app, available from the App Store or Google Play Store depending on your phone or tablet, is very easy to use. Once you log in on the app you don't have to log in next time you use it. And, it travels with you. I highly recommend it if you have a smartphone.
Most of our events are classes, so the help documents are written for classes. For other events, use these documents but substitute "event" for "class".
The instructions in the help documents available here each have three parts:
Part 1: How to register for a classThe available help documents are:
Part 2: How to check which classes you are registered in (especially useful to see if you made it off the waitlist)
Part 3: How to cancel a class registration
If you want to practice, I created the event Test Class. Its registration code is smile. Register for it, view your registrations, and cancel it. Try the Wild Apricot for Members app and web site methods and find out which you prefer. You may register and cancel more than once.
Classes fill up quickly and usually have a waitlist. Have consideration for those on the waitlist. Cancel the registration as soon as you know you cannot attend the class. Then the next person on the waitlist will automatically take your place. And note:
Class instructors cannot cancel your registration. Don't bother contacting them - do it yourself.
Class instructors cannot remove you from a waitlist. Send a removal request to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Manage your registrations and don't be a no-show!
Let's be considerate of our members and our volunteer class instructors!
