Thanks to Wild Apricot's online membership management software, the Marine Corps League Detachment 1452 in Ellis County, Texas (stationed in Ennis, Texas) is now able to have a public presence!! This allows our members and citizens of the local community to see what we are about and to have a steady link to our members, operations and events.
As the Detachment Commandant, I feel that this addition to our detachment will dramatically enhance our effectiveness in 'taking care of our own' by accomplishing our mission and vision for the future. A few features that will streamline our nonprofit processes, saving us time and effort in the long run, are: a dedicated website focused on membership management, membership directory/account maintenance, member dues management, event management, financial management regarding dues and donations and email distribution, to name a few.
Our focus is broad and our vision is directed toward enhancing the lives of our local Veterans and helping to improve our communities whenever we can.
I strongly encourage use of this website and that you would take the time to look around, play around, and see what this website can offer. For a member more functionality is available than a public visitor. A great example of this would be the membership directory. It is built to not show members' names to non-members, but will show the entire roster to members of the detachment.
