New Database for Members
We have implemented a new database, RueShare, to manage our member information. RueShare was developed by a former employee of a community media center in Massachusetts.
Now TCMedia members can sign up and pay for classes, renew their memberships, and request an equipment reservation on-line.
A training workshop on how to use RueShare will be held on Saturday, March 11 at 12:30PM as our Second Saturday workshop.
