I'm already a Boomerang member. Why do I need a new account?
When you originally signed up for Boomerang, you actually only signed up for an email list (with no password or account involved). This allowed us to send you a weekly newsletter. The new Boomerang website supports secure accounts, so you can have a personalized experience every time you log in with all your upcoming and saved workshops in one place!
What if I don’t want a new account?
We get it, no one likes change. But, having a secure account lets us create the best experience possible for you. In the future we will be adding new features to the website to further personalize your Boomerang experience. The old Boomerang website is now retired, so you’ll need to create a new Boomerang account in order to keep discovering, registering for, and attending workshops.
