CMHA is excited to inform you that effectively January 9th, 2018 we are rolling out a new scheduling system called Acuity Scheduling. This system will let you book Light Up Your Mind presentations and Adult Community Education workplace presentations independently online. In addition to this great capability, you are able to create an account and enter your details just once giving you the ability to bypass the need to enter your details if you will be scheduling multiple presentations. Plus, when you book a presentation you will get a confirmation email which will include links enabling you to cancel, reschedule, or add appointments to your calendar. Finally, you will also receive a reminder email with all your details a week before your scheduled presentation.
The best feature about this system is accessibility as it allows you to book presentations online at any time. This means that instead of calling or emailing for availability, you will now be able to schedule by choosing a date and time of your liking as the system is set to bring up only available time slots.
We are aware that all new systems come with challenges so to best assist you with any problems that you may encounter, we have attached a step by step manual for your reference which can be accessed by clicking here.
