Update from the Support Team 

This month, we are sharing answers to frequently asked support questions. 

Emails are not being sent to all contacts in the list  

There are a few reasons why your message might not be sent to all the contacts on your recipients list: 

 

  • They have opted out from receiving email blasts 

  • They have had email delivery disabled by the system because of previous delivery issues 

  • They do not have an email address entered on their contact record 

 

To confirm the reason, check the Email settings and log tab on their contact record. 

 

 

What is the difference between a lapsed member and a suspended member?

 

A suspended member is a former member whose membership has been revoked and is now a non-member contact.  

 

 

A lapsed member is a member who has lost membership privileges because of unpaid membership fees.  

 

 

Unlike a suspended member, a lapsed member can restore their membership by paying the renewal fee. A suspended member must reapply for membership using the same process as any other applicant.  

 

To confirm someone's membership status, check the Membership tab on their contact record.

Meet the Team: Kerry McCreadie, Senior Content Manager   

 

 

Hey! I'm Kerry McCreadie, and I'm fresh at WildApricot for just over a month. 

 

As the Senior Content Marketing Manager, I create content for organizations like you—so you can grow your membership, retain more members, and raise more funds. Right now, I'm the person who's getting all the posts onto our WildApricot blog

Organization Spotlight: Raising Littles Bend  

 

 

Raising Littles Bend, based in Bend, Oregon, focuses on supporting moms on their parenthood journey. The organization provides a safe inclusive community, offering many different social and learning opportunities for moms and their littles including park playdates, field trips, mom’s meetups, a speaker series, and more.  

 

What we love about its website

Raising Little Bend’s website is simple yet elegant. We love the neutral colour scheme, consistency of text, and excellent use of white space and images throughout the website. Displaying high-quality images featuring real people helps visitors feel more connected to the support group, like showing its executive board. The Membership page also gives you the benefits of joining with a clear call-to-action button to help you get started.
