Membership Classes are used to classify Membership Programs. They can be identified as Airline Programs (Frequent Flyer Programs) or Loyalty Programs (Property Guest Loyalty Programs). Before the Membership programs can be created in Configuration > Profiles > Memberships > Types you must define the Membership Class that the program belongs to. Select Configuration > Profile > Memberships > Classes to display the membership classes that have been configured.

When you select an existing membership class and select Edit or New to create a new entry the Membership Classes - Edit screen displays:
