Member Portal – new features!
ORTWS has started using new membership and event software called Wild Apricot. It is much more robust than the system we used last year, with more features and support that saves the Chapter money and the Secretary, Treasurer, and event managers time! This means we’ll be able to put our time (and Chapter money) into tasks that more directly benefit Oregon wildlife and wildlife professionals.
You’ll probably start getting emails from firstname.lastname@example.org to remind you about Chapter dues, or to confirm registration with workshops, meetings, and other events. You’ll also see a “member portal” now on the main menu bar of our website. Use your email address on file with us (where you get emails from ORTWS.Secretary), and reset a password to get in! So far
- Update your contact information at any time, and make sure it’s right
- Register for events simply, and pay for them online via Paypal (credit cards accepted), or send a check
- Renew your membership – the software even sends you a reminder note!
- Coming soon: message forum to network with other ORTWS members. Ask questions from your colleagues, discuss surveys and methodologies, arrange travel and carpool for events, and more!
Since this is still new, please let Vee know if there are any issues, especially if the Member Portal is blocked from your work site or if emails get bumped to spam/junk folders. We want to make sure that online presence is as user-friendly and easy as possible.
