Project story

Association of Registrars and Collections Specialists

The Association of Registrars and Collections Specialists (ARCS) was founded in 2012 to represent and promote Registrars and Collections Specialists, to educate them in the professional best practices of registration and collections care, and to facilitate communication and networking among members and across professional organizations.

In order to attract new members and facilitate collaboration among those existing, the ARCS was in need of a comprehensive website with integrated content management and an integrated member database to improve efficiency in administrative member functions, which were to date being managed manually by members of the board.

Members of the founding board were interviewed and similar professional organizations were evaluated to better understand the needs of the organization and its community of potential members. Research and site design resulted in a fresh new visual identity appealing to this audience of collections specialists.

Searchable members-only directory, allowing zip code proximity searches and filtering by specialization

Key features of the website include membership application and profile management, at an individual and corporate membership level, dues renewal, an online forum allowing for collaboration among members and across professional organizations, and a searchable members-only directory, allowing zip code proximity searches and filtering by specialization. The website also features event listings, an online registration interface, categorized news items, a Career Center with current job postings, and a comprehensive resource database.

The new website was built using Webitects' content management system (CMS) and fully integrated association management system (AMS). This solution provides for comprehensive content management, meeting the communication goals of the organization, in conjunction with a custom web-based membership database, allowing for seamless integration of back office functions with a member’s own profile management.

Webitects designed and developed this site and is no longer servicing it.
