Monday, October 9 - presented by YNPN National Staff Member Jeff Key
This live training session demonstrated event setup, ticket sales, and RSVP/attendee management in the NationBuilder dashboard and database. This session included a live demo of setting up a sample event from scratch in NationBuilder and Q&A from participants. We also discussed NationBuilder's ability to integrate with other popular event management systems, and discussed the pros/cons of using multiple systems and whether NationBuilder's event management features would be a good fit for your chapter's needs. If your chapter currently uses multiple systems for event management and is curious on whether NationBuilder would be a good fit for consolidating your event setup into one system, this session would be useful and informative.
