TLife - How clubs & orgs can participate in TellicoLife PDF Print Email

 Is your club or organization interested in participating in TellicoLife?

Here is the summary of who we are and how to participate. 

TellicoLife started in early 2017 as an idea from HOA to create an on-line way for HOA members to manage their membership, see the calendar, register for events, etc. We formed a team and conducted a classic software search. Late in the search, we realized that the needs we had for HOA were shared by other clubs and organizations in the village. What if we sponsored, on behalf of the village, a single on-line place where Villagers could easily find out what’s happening in and around Tellico Village? Would Villagers value it? Would clubs & organizations participate in it? So.. we launched in mid 2017 and have been live for about 18 months now.  As of Jan 1, 2019 .... 

  • Over 35 clubs & organizations are represented 
  • All site content is open access on the web – anyone can view it – sign in is NOT required 
  • We average 6500 page views per week 
  • 3000 households and 5500 individuals are registered on TellicoLife. (These are members of participating clubs & organizations who have individual transactions in TellicoLife, ex. renewing your HOA membership) 
  • Over 350 events have been posted on the calendar since June 2017 

What is TellicoLife? 

  • We use software licensed from MemberClicks, out of Atlanta, GA. They have been in business for about 20 years and service over 1500 associations with their product. 
  • We are organized as an ad-hoc committee under the HOA, and therefore a non-profit. 
  • We pay licensing for the software, our management of the content on the site is done by village volunteers. 
  • Our governance is provided through our founding partners: HOA, New Villagers, TV Computer Users Club and STAYinTV. It is important to us that we are provided for the village by the village. o Our board, comprised of the Presidents of these organizations provides strategic guidance and approves finances. 
    • Our steering team acts on behalf of the board. 
    • Our admin team manages the software and its content.  

What does TellicoLife cost and what do it get for that cost? 

  • We are funded by the participating clubs and organizations. 
    • We have 4 service offerings, described here in brief, with more information in the attached tri-fold brochure (see below) o Bronze ($60/year) – includes a home page for the VFW. 
      • Silver ($120/year) – adds 24 calendar entries / year 
      • Gold ($300/year) – adds either membership tracking or a total of 36 calendar entries/year 
      • Platinum ($600year) – full administrative access by your club admins, membership data base, credit card processing (additional fees apply), etc. 
    • There are a number of additional services, such as group email, contact us forms, event registration via email, etc. that we have customized for organizations based on their needs and interests. All of these are available at any participation level. So, let's talk about your unique needs and see how we can help.
