Wright "B" Flyer needs a better membership database, but one that can be managed by post-retirement volunteers with limited computer skills.

Wright "B" Flyer, Inc.

  Mission

Wright "B" Flyer Inc. is an all-volunteer 501 ( c ) 3 nonprofit located on Dayton-Wright Brothers Airport in Miami Twp. It flies and displays replicas of the Wright brothers' first production airplane and operates a hangar-museum on the airport that is free to the public. Its mission is to be the flying ambassador of Dayton's aviation heritage. It has flown and displayed its airplanes around the U.S. and internationally.

Project

Wright "B" Flyer needs a better membership database, but one that can be managed by post-retirement volunteers with limited computer skills. The database will be used to manage records of between 300-400 members. It includes basic data fields with contact information, membership level, expiration date, current/lapsed status, and possibly a few other items.

  Basic Functionality:

  • Maintain basic membership records of several hundred to a few thousand members.
  • Output lists for membership renewal reminders.
  • Output lists for our quarterly newsletter (some email, some postal)
  • Output lists for invitations to our annual dinner and other events.
  • Track whether volunteers are current members based on hours logged.
