We support many community groups with our system. There is
any number of types of groups
with all manner of reasons to be in existence
. Where we help them is in the area of administration and visibility. Using Agoria allows the maintenance of the group's website to become easy and straightforward.
You don't need a high level of skill to run the website - all you do need is some basic knowledge of word processing
and office style tools.
Most groups will have some sort of subscription or membership fee and without these fees to make a modest contribution to the running of the group - few could exist. Here again - the Activity Forum back-office system helps the administrators to keep their lists up to date.
