GNJMA Unveils New Technology to Enhance Member Experience

The Greater New Jersey Motorcoach Association (GNJMA) is enhancing the member experience through an investment in technology that will make it easier to access association resources.

Access is provided through a new Association Management System (AMS), which went live on July 11. It will reduce redundant processes for association operations.

Michelle Petelicki, President of Panorama Tours and GNJMA Board Member, has this to offer:

“Networking and connections are just one of the biggest benefits of being part of GNJMA. With the implementation of this new association management system, it’s not only easier to find and connect with d ‘other members without having to dig into the member directory, but it also allows me to update our business changes, such as contact information, in real time, Petelicki said.

Michelle Petelicki is President of Panorama Tours and a member of the GNJMA Board of Directors.

The new AMS will allow members to self-manage their GNJMA membership and easily access resources and benefits, as well as self-service tools. Some features include:

  • Find and communicate with other members.
  • Easy referral process for new members.
  • Resources at your fingertips.
  • Participate in forum discussions.
  • View and pay bills.
  • View and register for events.
  • Update individual profile contact information.
  • Update organization directory listing information.
  • Subscribe to lists and committees.

“Congratulations to the Greater NJ Motorcoach Association for always leading the way with innovative new resources for its members! The new association management system is easy to use and has all the information at your fingertips, said Heather Colache , Tourism Account Manager at Meet AC, member of the Atlantic City Film Commission and member of the GNJMA Board of Directors.
