Apricots Meet Aussies - Connecting with Clients

Lori Halley 08 July 2011 0 comments

Apricots meets our Australian clients -- Linda and Chris.Just as we were preparing to celebrate Canada Day, we had a surprise and very welcome visit from some of our clients from "down-under" – Linda and Chris of the Canadian Australian Club.

As an online service, we don’t usually get too many visits from clients at the Wild Apricot office – most of our interaction is via email, forums and phone. So we were thrilled that Linda and Chris took the time to stop in and say hello to us during on their recent visit to Toronto.

Here is a photo of some of our Apricots with Linda & Chris of the Canadian Australian Club.

 

The Canadian Australian Club promotes the interests of Canada and the Canadian Community in Sydney, Australia. They provide Canadians who are new to Australia with a local connection back to Canada as well as networking opportunities to meet others in similar circumstances. The Club offers a little bit of Canada in Sydney through social events and activities - such as celebrating Canada Day and Thanksgiving. This social networking club was formally registered with the State Government of New South Wales in 1967, the year of Canada's Centenary.  They've been using Wild Apricot since 2009.

After their visit, Chris sent us the photo above and noted:

 "I think it's great that customers like us, from the other side of the planet, can get to meet the people that help keep our club website going...as everything moves to the cloud it's easy to lose sight of the fact that there are a bunch of real people who make this stuff that we use, so I'm really glad we had the chance to drop in." (Chris Betcher, Canadian Australian Club)

We’d love to hear from you too!
