We intend to hire an event planner to handle all arrangements for the Sat. PM main dinner/banquet event portion of our 50th Class Reunion. (We are envisioning a 3-day weekend celebration, but will use the event planner agency solely for the main dinner--to do nametags, decorations, venue, meal, photog.,fee collection, etc.) Our class is close to 1000 so we'd like to relieve ourselves of as much detail work as possible.

Typically these businesses ask that we put a link to them on our site (for 'reunion dinner registration') thus taking classmates to their site for the actual dinner sign-up/fee collection.

I am trying to figure out how best to utilize & set up CC's 'Reunion Planner' functions under this scenario. We want to take advantage of the 'intent' to register so others joining the site can see who's planning to be there--hence we activated Question #19 on our Profile Generator. Ultimately we may wish to use CC's "reunion-planner" features (like sign-up/fee collection/reservations)for other-than-the-main-banquet reunion weekend events (e.g. for managing a Fri. PM get-together; Sat. golf outing; Sat. elem. & h.s. tours; Sun. Farewell b'fast/brunch.)

We want to keep confusion at a minimum but already I can see at least 2-4 'registration' processes piling up(sign-up for website; sign-up for intention to attend; sign-up for actual reunion dinner; sign-up for 'other' reunion-weekend events).

Is anybody out there using a 3rd party event or reunion planner? If so, how have you set it up on your CC site?

We welcome & greatly appreciate any feedback offered!!

We did all our Event planning using the Reunion Planner on CC. Wish I could help.
You can still use the Planner..for every thing..I guess. You would still be collecting money for the events.
You would have to make some type of arrangements with the 3rd party planner to have access to the planner...but not too sure I would want to do that. There are reports you can download and send to the planner.
What is Question #19 on the profile generator? Why not use the planner for the Sat. nite event too? don't have to post the same question in 3 places..eventually someone will answer. You posted your question over the weekend..and not many people answer question then. Wink

Now I know I miss too much here on the Help Forums! I would have come up to visit, Darlene, and nudged Cheryl to run her event! Months late and dollars short.
