Why doesn't my website logon work?
So after the last bulletin, you tried your old website logon to update your contact info just as we asked and it didn't work. Why?
  • the website resets on 2 January of each year and permits member-only content to those whose dues are paid current. If your access doesn't work, it may because your dues aren't paid for the year yet. Website access is usually restored within one business day of membership renewal.
  • Last year the Association upgraded user names to use e-mail addresses, and likewise increased password complexity. If your username / password combination is not working, please contact the Secretary for a re-set.
  • We are hoping to enable a feature later this year which will allow updating of contact information while maintaining segregation of paid member-only content. Stay tuned for details.
