More sites to look at and event registration

November 24, 2007

Good info from Gary. Yes, I agree that our current site wins with elegance/functionality.

Gary added some more sites to the list we should look at (with specifics about event registration). They’re in the mail he sent out.

I’ll only add that I seached for information about the eventbrite that Santa Clara uses and found out (don’t know how current it is but certainly the ballpark) that the fee for Eventbrite is 2.5% of the ticket price, with a minimum fee of $0.99 and a maximum fee of $9.95  http://www.crunchbase.com/company/eventbrite 

Phoenix uses http://www.acteva.com Hard to find out what it costs … may vary on what you do. I read 7.6% of ticket price in one report.

Dallas CAS (http://ewh.ieee.org/soc/cas/dallas/) uses a free IEEE registration system.

But what do we do with free events?


Sites from Other Sections

November 23, 2007

I created a website category for this discussion. 

Gary pointed out some section sites we should look at. They do use this entity web hosting provided by IEEE. Why don’t we use that? What’s the history?I do like the Santa Clara site http://www.ewh.ieee.org/r6/scv/index.html
DC http://www.ewh.ieee.org/r2/washsec/
North Carolina http://www.ewh.ieee.org/r3/enc/  This is the only one I could find.
Orlando http://www.ewh.ieee.org/r3/orlando/
Austin http://www.ewh.ieee.org/r5/central_texas/austin_cs/  I can only find the Computer Society for Austin but …
Central Texas http://www.ewh.ieee.org/r5/central_texas/ I found the scrolling distracting. Do people like that?
Dallas http://www.ewh.ieee.org/r5/dallas/
Boston has that three-column format I like but the middle one seems too structured. http://ieeeboston.org/
Boulder looks pretty minimal http://ieee.colorado.edu/ … Denver better.
