It's been a good year. The international directory is nearly complete as some legacy member applications continue to trickle in. Our next batch processing endeavor is to include new practitioner members, first year complimentary! Stay tuned...

Group / Multiple Listings

Contact us to discuss group/combination listings ie: individuals working from multiple locations, or clinic group with multiple practitioners working from the same clinic. Group rates fro directory listings are now available.

March 28, 2014 - Status 50%

Thanks to all for your enthusiasm for the new directory and helpful feedback!

Check back periodically to see if your listing has been posted, please be sure to check it for accuracy.

Once the directory has been fully populated (current STATUS 50%), we will submit to Google search engine to crawl for better SEO. This will enable the public to find your contact information with expedition. First priority is function and integrity of data, next priority will be the esthetics. 

Noted: the directory still requires quite some work to make it “happen”.

WildApricot offers many features which we hope to see rolled out over the coming year.

Improvements in integration may include:

  • Search functionality, manual & SEO
  • Member sign-in privileges
  • Esthetics
  • Branding
  • Invoicing & payment processing
  • Referrals
  • eMail Newsletters
  • Membership renewal
  • Events
  • Donations

Thanks for looking!

RE: 2014 Member Directory Upgrade

Thank you to all for keeping your membership up-to-date

We are processing all submissions as a batch and will be issuing receipts and certificate decals as soon as possible.

We are rolling out a new strategy for the 2014 Member Directory to provide a better experience for patients seeking your aid. The objective is to integrate a better format for the directory to allow for quicker search functionality and ease of maintenance, amongst other features. It is encouraging to see that the member list has grown exponentially, to the point that efficient maintenance has become a priority.

We are currently building the database offline, so this may take a little longer than anticipated. Manually pulling data from many different sources to thoroughly capture everyone’s multiple emails and business locations is a daunting task. You are an especially active group to follow!

A notification will be sent out at the time that the revised directory launches so you can review it for accuracy, ETA mid to late February. Not to worry if the new listing is a little delayed in getting posted, that simply means it will roll through 2015 just as much forward.

Improvements to date:

Online Payments

Submission of payments may be made online

PayPal Worldwide - see link above

Interac - coming soon, request it today!

Multiple Locations

Your membership entitles you to one free listing in the Practitioner Directory.

Additional listings are available, see webform above for revised rates.

To help expedite the upgrade process, please feel free to send us an email with your professional signature(s).
This will help immensely!
