Members Only: Coordinating for Events
Using the SignUp Genius (SUG) Platform
Occasionally, enough volunteers are required for an event or program that requires larger coordination of active membership; TMNCPC committees and many on the current Board use SignUp Genius (SUG). NOTE: Chapter members are not required to create a personal SUG account in order to use it; simply click on the shared link, then follow the instructions provided on a computer or mobile device.
You can easily sign yourself up for a specific event or program with an active SUG —within the SUG-generated email, on the last page of the Weekly Bulletin, posted on #vsp or #at or other Slack channels, etc. — then complete the process including your full name, email address, any optional comments, and a mobile phone contact, if requested. Once complete, the Event Coordinator knows which spots are open and which spots remain to be filled and can quickly notify you directly through email generated within the SUG messaging system (or by texting your mobile directly).
To cancel yourself off a SUG you previously signed up for, you may need to contact the event coordinator directly via email or through a Slack direct message; simply replying to an SUG-generated email may not reach the event coordinator.
Don’t forget the last step of adding it to your calendar!
If you are not receiving any chapter-blasted SignUp Geniuses, it could be:
- Your server’s filter settings are bouncing them upon receipt. Try whitelisting all emails generated from @signupgenius.com to assure future messages are not sent to your server’s spam folder or bounced altogether. If you continue to have problems, please notify the Information Technology Director for other fixes.
- You are enrolled in the current semester of the TMNCPC Training Course. See below.
Replying to SignUp Emails
Instead of replying to an SUG email, contact one of the SignUp Genius Coordinators directly, below.
Several members of TMNCPC use the chapter SUG. Emails sent to you from within the SUG messaging system might look like it originated from a chapter member, but when you reply to them through your email client, your reply will likely not get received.
Newest Class Members
Questions? Contact the Information Technology Director or your Training Class Director.
If you are a member of the newest training class, you will not start receiving SUG notifications until a predetermined point during your training course. They will be shared with you on Slack #class-[year]-[semester] channel and linked in the Weekly Bulletin (emailed Tuesdays via MailChimp). Consult with your assigned Chapter Mentor or Training Class Director directly to find opportunities nearest you. Once training is complete, you will be automatically added to [TMN Active] group.
