The AUA Tendenci Website Talk about Community! It gives us great pleasure to welcome our new clients to the association management open source community with Tendenci AMS. 

The Association of University Architects (AUA) was founded by university architects in the United States and Canada in the 1950s, by professionals who had for many years served as campus planners and aspired to create an organization of people with similar responsibilities. With Tendenci's Event Management, AUA can now take their event and member registrations online - making member sign-up and activity more streamlined than ever!

The AUA also brings an incredible amount of resources to its members' fingertips with Tendenci's robust File Repository, backed up to the AWS Cloud, making a wealth of modern knowledge easily accessible to their members by allowing members and administrators direct access to deep archives from the AUA's rich history and beyond. 

"Are files sanitized?" is actually a frequently asked question by current and prospective clients like AUA - and the answer is yes. Tendenci was built on the Django framework which uses validation for forms and sanitization for file uploads.

The AUA's top priority is engagement and effective communication. With the membership portal and robust features, Tendenci has to offer, The AUA is able to go above and beyond to provide a platform where the best minds gather to learn from, engage with and provoke new thoughts from each other.

The most powerful feature AUA members use to communicate is Tendenci's Online Forum, which in their unique case is only accessible to members in the member portal via our Site-Wide Tendenci Permissions/Control Settings. Online Forums with Tendenci allow AUA members to create threaded discussion boards on their site, allowing community members to discuss topics with one another and providing a great online space for asking questions and receiving answers on a variety of topics.  

The AUA also leverages custom templates and permissions to bring a unique experience and to maximize efficiency by partitioning what information is available to members, via a membership dashboard, and site visitors, via the public-facing homepage. Each experience comes with an entirely unique navigation menu and layout!

Team Tendenci is incredibly proud to have been chosen as AUA's technology solution after laying out the desired outcome and capabilities their organization set out to achieve. It was quite a journey of digital transformation to open source tech and the freedom to own their data. 

Stacked against every other association management software currently on the market, Tendenci is more robust and cost-effective, dollars to pennies, for both small and large organizations alike.

Our membership management solution also provides The Association of University Architects the tools they need to fully organize and scale without limits with an orchestration of educational material and knowledge-based files for its members.

So, once again, let's welcome AUA to the community of game changers in the open-source community!
