The award is not about being perfect, but is about committing to and striving for continuous performance improvement and using iMIS to advance your mission by serving your donors and community at the highest levels. Nominate your organization at advsol.com/nominate.
Awarded monthly, we review countless submissions from the iMIS community, sharing stories on the great things their peers, colleagues and partners are achieving. We are pleased to announce the August 2023 winners:

A two-time winner! Electrical and Communications Association Supercharges Member Personalisation
The National Electrical and Communications Association (NECA) - Victorian Chapter won an iMIS Great Things Award for their overall use of iMIS EMS in 2022 and they’re back again with an award for their new iMIS website.
NECA is the peak industry body representing interests of the electrical and communications contracting industry across Victoria, Australia. The organisation partnered with Causeis, their Authorized iMIS Solutions Provider, to assist in the development of a new public-facing website to showcase their member value proposition. NECA VIC launched their new website in December 2022 and has been enjoying the benefits ever since.
Renata Simeona, Member Experience & Operational Support Administrator, told us, “We have more flexibility and freedom to advertise our products and services throughout the new website and even sell products online, allowing us to do new things that we were unable to do previously.”
“Our ability to target different segments and effectively communicate with those segments has improved. This feature allows us to tailor content and offers based on specific user preferences optimizing their experience on our website.”
NECA VIC has seen a significant rise in member engagement and received positive feedback on the improved design and functionality of the website since going live. This is just the start of their website development journey.
Highlights from the new website:
- A sleek and modern homepage that showcases content most valued and sought by members (and prospects)
- A ‘mega-menu’ navigational structure that is easier to use and allows plenty of room for expansion and content growth
- A brand-new Resource Library, utilizing Causeis’ Smart Resource module, which provides easy access to valuable resources for both members and non-members
- Digitized member benefits such as discounts and fuel cards, and much more

CPA Manitoba Takes Advantage of "Endless" Integration Possibilities
The Chartered Professional Accountants of Manitoba (CPA Manitoba) is a regulatory body that represents more than 9,000 members, candidates and students. CPA Manitoba protects the public interest through rigorous educational and certification programs and ensures its members uphold the highest professional and ethics standards. CPA Manitoba made the move to iMIS EMS and hasn't looked back.
Dima Vainer, Director of IT at CPA Manitoba told us, “We have already seen positive results and feedback, whether it's member experience with our new modern website and services that we offer online, but also our staff ability to be more efficient with day-to-day tasks."
He continued, "When interacting with the new system, we continue building an ecosystem around the iMIS cloud by integrating with other third-party applications such as Web Scribble for our job board as well as mailing for better engagement with our members and students. I would say that with iMIS, cloud system integration is endless."
New Member Portals
These robust, member-friendly portals are tailored for individuals and firms
Easy Dues Renewal Process
This dramatically reduced the manual tasks associated with member billings
New Staff Training Program
A full training program was rolled out over the course of the project for all staff using the iMIS Learning Hub.
Al Povoledo, Chief Executive Officer at Bursting Silver tells us that CPA Manitoba moved to iMIS EMS because the organization's “legacy association management system solution no longer met the organization’s business requirements and needs.”
