Event Registration System

FROM: Tim Aumann

What NEED does this meet?
Charitable groups run events all the time that require to sign up - anything from a class or seminar to summer camp programs and trips. Each charity currently buys or develops software for managing these events (or worse, different sowftare for each type of event!). The idea would be develop a flexible, open-source system that a charity could use for event registration.

What is the APPROACH?
This approach is distintive in two ways. First, by offering the service for free, you free up charitable resources. Second, by offering a flexible yet standard method for event management, you make the entire event management process easier for the charity.

What are the BENEFITS to people?
People will be able to sign up for events that interest them easily and quickly online. Charities will not have to expend resources developing event management systems.

What is the COMPETITION?
Not that I know of. There are event management packages that can be purchased from for-profit organizations.

What BUDGET & LOGISTICS are required?
It depends on how flexible you want to make it. With flexibility comes expense. A simple "sign me up for this one-off class of seminar" application would be cheaper than system that could also handle signing you up for multiple classes at different times at the same event. Same with if you add in a mehtod for online payment. But overall, it should not be too expensive. Probably a couple of man-months or so to develop and code. Using open-source toosl such as Java and MySQL would cut the operational expenses.

Look at http://upcoming.org/
Very good event management/dissemination site. The developer is adding functionality all the time - if there's anything specific, mail them.

I'm impressed and interested in what you're trying to do. I just submitted my own idea for an interactive database resource for not for profits producing fundraising and awareness raising special events and would be interested in collaborating. The site I submitted with my comments has nothing to do with this resource tool, but is available for special events marketing for not for profits.
