New International CGIMS Directory & Website - iSTOP rolls into the 21st century!

In 2013, iSTOP switched up to WildApricot Membership web-based platform to help manage our growing membership.

Membership Software - Wild Apricot

The new International iSTOP Member Directory has been created to provide a better experience for patients seeking health care aid. The modern format allows for quicker search functionality and ease of maintenance, among many other features. It is encouraging to see that the membership list has grown exponentially, to the point that efficient maintenance has become a priority.

Looking “peachy”!


WildApricot offers many features which we hope to see roll out over the coming year. The first priority is function and integrity of data, next priority will be the aesthetics. Noted, the directory still requires some work to make it “happen”. Improvements in integration may include:

  • International iSTOP Member Directory, a more robust professional profile
  • Search functionality, simple & advanced options
  • Member sign-in privileges, accessible 24/7
  • Privacy settings
  • Profile management, add photo!
  • Data integrity, maintain up to date contact info
  • Branding
  • SEO - search engine optimization
  • Invoicing & Receipts
  • Online payments
  • Referrals
  • eMail Newsletters
  • Membership renewals, auto notifications
  • Events
  • Expanded membership roles
  • Donations

  • ... last but not least, aesthetics!

iSTOP's thanks go out to all for your patience as we learn to use and roll out new features from this robust platform.

Gunn IMS rolls into the 21st century!
