New SSC Membership and Affiliate System (MAS)
Speed Skating Canada has been using a membership database referred to as MMS for the past few years. This online registration system is being replaced on June 1st by a new system called the Membership and Affiliate System (MAS). Here is some information for Alberta Clubs (May 3, 2018):
Here are some details about the MAS implementation process:
• Communications from Speed Skating Canada
All communications about MAS will be sent directly to the PTSOs (Provincial Branch Contacts – AASSA). AASSA will then distribute the information to their respective clubs, officials, coaches, etc. to help prepare members and clubs for the 2018-2019 season.
• Providing Feedback to Speed Skating Canada
• Training Guides and Videos
The training guides and videos for the MAS will be made available to AASSA on June 1, 2018.
• Training Sessions PTSO Administrators
Speed Skating Canada will be training PTSO reps in early June. Once AASSA Administrators have attended a Training Session and have reviewed the training guides/videos, the AASSA Administrators will begin training Club Administrators. AASSA reps will have access to regular SSC training sessions in August and September to ask questions and provide feedback on the system, so Club reps should be providing their questions and feedback to AASSA by this time.
• Creating User Accounts
Once set up, AASSA reps will create user accounts for Alberta Club Administrators.
• Online Payments
All PTSOs and clubs are required to register their members using the MAS, which will have the ability to manage payments online. For the 2018-2019 season, Speed Skating Canada will allow clubs to process payments using the MAS or process payments manually. More information on signing-up for online payments and the fees for online payments will be made available shortly.
• Contact Details for Members
The MAS will have numerous features that will allow Speed Skating Canada to better communicate with members. Kindly ensure that contact details featured within a members’ account belongs to the member and not the club or PTSO.
• Membership Fees for 2018-2019
Please note that Speed Skating Canada’s and Alberta Speed Skating membership fees for the 2018-2019 season will remain unchanged from the membership fees established for the 2017-2018 season.
• The Existing MMS
The existing MMS is still available, but we kindly ask all PTSOs and clubs to extract any data for their records as soon as possible. Please note that membership accounts of those members who registered for the 2017-2018 season will be automatically transferred to the MAS.
