NEW VENUE NEWS

Adult Activity Centre Begins Implementation of a

Technology Approach to Facilitate Member Access to The Centre and its Programs

Submitted by Bob Dye and Sharon Alliet

Beginning April 1, 2019 member access into The Ridgetown and Area Adult Activity Centre will be facilitated by an Access Card System.

Each member of the Centre will be provided with a personal access card (similar in size and type as your Tim Horton’s card). To gain access to The Centre, a Member’s Access Card will be scanned by a Card Reader under the control of the Receptionist at the Registration Desk. The Card Reader is linked to The Centre’s data base and the Receptionist is able to confirm that the Member has paid the Annual Access Fee and has paid the Participation Fee for the Program in which the Member plans to participate. Registration and payment would be prior to participation for regularly scheduled programs. (examples: cards, cribbage, glee club) Participation Fees would be prepaid in blocks of 10 participations. Periodically scheduled and select Programs (examples: foot clinic, trips, meals) fees would be prepaid at time of registration. For Program offerings offsite (examples: lane bowling, pickleball) access card readers will be available at all offsite locations, administered by a Program Leader.

This approach to Centre Access, and Program Participation is a more business-like approach to Program Management. Centre Management will be better able to track Program popularity and match program revenue with program cost.

Currently underway is a program pricing project led by the Centre’s Financial Management Committee. The Committee is being guided by the following principles in its pricing exercise:

  • Member Ability and Willingness to Pay.
  • Direct Cost Recovery.
  • Contribution to Centre’s Operational Overhead.
  • Select Programs may be Subsidized for Regular Members. (Maximum Subsidy will be Total Overhead Contribution.)
  • Non-Members Will Pay a Premium for Accessing Select Programs.
  • Overall Pricing to Recognize Operating Costs are likely to be higher in a New Centre.

When completed price lists will be posted and circulated.

The new approach to Centre Access and Program Pricing is an integral part of the development of Ridgetown’s New Member Focused Adult Activity Centre – The Centre of the Community.
