I see in the minutes that executive committee is still discussing getting a credit card merchant account.
If this is for online registration, I believe this is a big mistake. We would be trying to rebuild on our own, online registration systems that are already in place and wide use from active.com lin-mark.com, timberlinetiming.com, sommersports.com and any number of other vendors.
The overhead fee per transaction would be higher but on the other hand usms would not have to manage the website, develop the registration system, find a database vendor etc. All costly and time consuming items.
We have used online registration in the local triathlon club and have been nothing but pleased with it.
