How About Working Smarter in 2015?
It’s early January 2015. The suitcases are put away. Friends and family have returned home. The holidays and parties are fun memories. It’s much quieter around the house as kids are back to school. As we shuffle off to work at home or our office, we attempt to pick back up our regular routines. We take stock of our lives in various ways and many of us resolve to try and make the coming year a successful one by promising to do things differently. Exercise more. Eat less. Be more patient with family and friends. Be more assertive. Look for a new job. Change the way we interact with others.
The reality is that many of these resolutions wind up on the shelf by February. Many of us fall back to the behaviors and personal habits that we are used to, whether they are best for us or not. The same is true of how we run the organizations we lead. We may know that our school, PTA/O or Booster Club spends too much inefficient time and energy manually handling paper forms and checks and inquiries from confused parents, and not enough time planning meaningful activities for students and families or making our leadership group more effective. But we continue managing our organizations the way we know. It doesn’t mean it works the best. It’s just that everyone involved knows how it works.
Now is a good time to take stock of how your school or parent group runs. Resolve to take a closer look at the functions your group performs and how these are handled. Make a resolution for this New Year to explore the features that an online tool like Pay4SchoolStuff offers to your leadership group, Executive Board or Administrative Team. Let us help you work smarter in 2015 to manage your forms, registrations, record-keeping, fees, family nights, after school classes AND MORE–efficiently, conveniently, securely.
