all the processes we used to do by hand, as well as replace our system of spreadsheets
and files with an easy-to-use set-up we can access through the Internet.”
MemberSuite’s association-centric features include chapter self-management; online
dues payment, renewals and tracking; back-issue fulfillment, advertiser integration
and subscriber tracking; and automated, online donation acceptance, acknowledgment
“We’re thrilled to have the ACBS on board,” said MemberSuite CEO Andrew Ryan. “It
demonstrates MemberSuite’s unique ability to help associations of all sizes better
serve their members and grow their ranks without having to compromise functionality.”

MemberSuite really backs up the offer with features and services that will grow
with our needs.”
