Thanks to a grant from the Community Foundation for Kingston and Area, the KSOA has been able to research and select a new registration and school management system. The company we have chosen is Amilia, based in Montreal. Even though the KSOA is of course closed at this time, office manager Ilga Weiss and Barb Carr have been learning the complexities of the software and sorting out how to configure the options to best suit our operations.
We are having some remote training sessions from Amilia, and our goal is to go "live" on Tuesday, May 19th! To start with, the courses that will be available for registration on the new system will be the Children's Summer Art Camps, and a few adult summer art courses and workshops. Once we get into August, we will have all the fall term courses on the new system. Exciting times!
When you sign up for a course on the new system, you will prompted to create an account for yourself, which you can use anytime you sign up for subsequent courses. We hope you will find this more convenient than our current system of registration.
We'll send out a notice once we're "live", so you can have a look around the new system. Keep your fingers crossed for us!
