Intelligent club / association management with BuddyBoss
Where is the issue of "community" more important than in a club or an association?
BuddyBoss can also be used very well for an association.
We have already reported on BuddyBoss in various places.
Please read our article "BuddyBoss“.
Question: What is the basic characteristic of an association or federation?
The basic feature of a club or association is "THE COMMUNITY". BuddyBoss as a community plugin for WordPress can more than adequately serve this basic feature. But now the question arises why we recommend BuddyBoss for clubs or associations.
BuddyBoss and the formation of groups
With BuddyBoss, "groups" can be formed. We could also call these communities of interest. Different permissions can be assigned to the groups. Groups can be visible or invisible. You can become a member of a group automatically and/or by request and much more. News can be posted within a group. In addition, messages can be sent to individual members or to all members of a group. If Zoom is connected, you can start a Zoom meeting directly from a group and the group members are automatically notified.
The invisible groups are of course only visible to assigned group members - as is the news for this group.
BuddyBoss and the Forums
With BuddyBoss, forum discussions can still be offered. It is possible to assign a forum discussion to a group.
The main benefits of BuddyBoss for a club or association are
By forming groups, it is possible to address members in a targeted manner. Messages are automated without the need to send elaborate emails. The success of the use of BuddyBoss stands and falls with an intelligent structure of the groups.

In any case, such an installation can be a Be an additional source of income for clubs and associations.
