New Membership Benefit with Silkstart

In partnership with Volunteer BC, SilkStart is pleased to offer preferred pricing to all Volunteer BC members. Volunteer BC currently uses this platform to manage their events, communications and membership.

SilkStart is a leading provider of cloud software for member-based organizations. SilkStart's Association Management System (AMS) streamlines operations through one central database that can be accessed anywhere. SilkStart creates beautiful and functional websites that are mobile friendly and can also integrate with existing sites. They simplify complex and time consuming tasks like member management, events, invoicing, payment processing, and communications. Using SilkStart means associations don’t need to piece together several applications. One powerful solution that will allow you to focus on what’s most important – Providing value to your members.
