Tip of the month – New ways of doing old things

Are there any systems that your group should consider updating? There are many apps and technology that can make life easier for volunteer organisations, everything from issuing tickets, fundraising, designing logos and posters. If you have a system in place and you think there may be an easier way of doing things why don’t you give us a call to have a chat about possible solutions.
