New Capabilities for Members
We are now using a new software system for managing Abigails Membership, Website, Newsletter, Meetings and Activities. There are a lot of new capabilities on the system that you can use.
For example, you’ll be able to check your dues status on line, look up the contact information of fellow Abigails, participate in on-line discussions, etc..
Our website and newsletter will be available to you just as they always have been, but to use the MEMBERS-ONLY capabilities described above,you’ll have to have a user name and password.
You should have already received an email message with your USER ID and PASSWORD. You'll need them to sign up for meetings and activities, and to pay your dues. Once you sign in with your username and password, you’ll have the opportunity to customize your password, and provide us with some information for your Personal Profile. This is also the time an place to correct the address or phone number that's been wrong forever.
Privacy and security were big concerns when we chose this new system, so you’ll be able to customize how much, if any, information from your Personal Profile you want to make available to fellow members, and what kinds of email you choose to receive from us. The default setting is that ALL information in your profile, including that you’re a member of Abigails, is private unless you choose to make parts of it available to fellow Abigails members. The default for email is that you receive everything, from event announcements to the newsletter. Once you’re “registered”, please have some fun exploring the website, and let us know what you like and don’t like. Same with new membership and event emails you’ll be receiving over the next several months.
We'd love feedback on these new capabilities. Please let us know what you think.
