Society Office, May I Help You?
We’ve been managing medical and scientific societies and planning their annual meetings for the past 27 years. We put all that experience into our website designs.
With a Content Management System (CMS), such as WordPress, a website redesign or new website is accomplished in days rather then weeks, saving the Society money and enabling the staff and/or volunteers to maintain the site easily from their web browsers (if they want to).
Meeting organization themed websites can expedite program development, send email blasts, automate social networking updates and coordinate online abstract management and registration as well as increase sponsors’ and exhibitors’ return on investment.
Please visit the following Websites we designed and currently manage in WordPress:
Online Association Management / Conference Management Systems
We are currently using three (3) different association management systems depending on the unique needs of our clients.
Our favorite is www.x-cd.com for societies that are able to fully integrate all their membership, meeting registration, abstract submission, awards applications, abstract and award review and online programming into one online database. Current clients that are fully integrated are isdp.org and tularemia.org. Please feel free to visit those websites and click on the Member Login buttons, test it out (I do that ALL the time to evaluate other online systems).
The strength of X-CD is on the conference management side, and because International Cytokine & Interferon Society has a long standing contract with an outside meeting planning company, we are using www.internet4associations.com for our association management system. This system’s strengths are on the membership management side, although it includes an excellent event registration system which we are not able to utilize, it currently does not offer abstract management or programming. We are able to set up Awards Applications and Nomination Forms but there is no built in review system. Please visit the Login button on www.cytokinesociety.org. The cost for this system is $99 a month, no extra transaction fees, plus a $1500 one-time set up/data migration fee.
Then, for small associations with a very limited budget, we have been using www.membee.com for the Cell Stress Society International. The cost is just $49 per month (no extra transaction fees & no set up fees) and the system works hard, also includes a surprisingly powerful, integrated event registration for multiple events. Again, the online abstracts are not included so we’ve setup a simple online database for abstract submissions using a free WordPress plugin (Participants Database), which has been working for them, see (congress.cellstressresponses.org).
