    The EDO team spent weeks reviewing, interviewing, and filtering a robust Membership solution for the Associations needs.  Today the Executive Director made the final selection on Wild Apricot by Personify.   Over the next couple of weeks the EDO team will be spending countless hours doing the data entry and programming the system.  Experts at Wild Apricot say it should take roughly around 80 to 100 man-hours to get the site and Management Software fully functional for our members.
