Winter registration to be held Saturday

 As a result of issues with the Elmhurst Park District’s registration software, the District made changes to the first day of registration process beginning with winter registration. Those changes included hosting gymnastics registration on a separate day and time in an effort to alleviate the burden on the software system. That registration took place this past weekend and went smoothly.

General registration for winter programs will be held this Saturday, December 8. Staff is expecting a large volume based on past data but hopes that conducting the registration on two separate days will help.

“The decision was made to conduct gymnastics registration on a separate day to try to avoid the glitches that occurred with spring and fall registration this year,” said Executive Director Jim Rogers, “But that being said, we’re still expecting a lot of traffic to the site and ask residents to please be patient as the software works to process the registrations.”

In the meantime, a Request for Proposal was posted last week in an effort to find a new software vendor that is capable of meeting the needs of the Elmhurst community. The District will be accepting RFPs through the first of the year and will be conducting demos with potential software vendors in February ahead of the spring registration.
