Managing a community association can be a daunting task, especially when the number of members are too many and the resources to manage the same are less. Community associations come with a set of activities that need to be carried out on a routine basis. These activities not only breathe a life into the associations, but also make them equally enchanting.

Community associations have various happenings which need regular content updates. Some of these can be newsletters, galleries, events and newsfeeds.

Going online with a platform exclusively for your community gives you the ability to organise and structure the activities to be done without missing anything out.
Handling various details of the members and tracking their changes is very tough if every process is manual. Imagine the number of tasks that the community association has in this aspect -right from registration to keeping every detail of the member in accordance with the needs of the community, the list of activities is simply huge. Some of them include:
• New member registration
• Annual membership renewal

The community associations are becoming a great source of networking for businesses. People within a specified community recommend each other for services needed and also pass references outside the circle. For this, the association needs separate pages for various services that are available. With an online platform all these can be accordingly segregated and used as needed.
Collecting suggestions and implementing the same is crucial for any community association. But ensuring that the feedback is gathered without any of the details being missed out is another point of focus for the team. Having regular feedback will help in improvising the way the association operates. Apart from the feedback, online voting is another tool which might prove very handy for the team. Having online polls is an efficient way to stay ahead and also engage the members of the association. We will have options to create suitable online polls, voting for association panel member selection and sorting of various poll related activities without any glitches.
