Fill in the form and send it to the Administrator.
The first thing you will notice on reaching this page is the disappearance of the Login. There is now a new heading on the top left-hand side – the Members Home which contains a drop-down arrow. Clicking on this arrow reveals all the sections within the Members Area.
The Members Home page will have a link to the most recent “Newsletter” published by VSMA and may also contain announcements for members.
This page shows your account details. Username cannot be changed but you can amend your name or your email address if they have been entered incorrectly.
On the left-hand side of the page are three icons. The first of these, a “Head”, takes you back to this page; the second one allows you to change your Password and the last “Padlock” can be used to prevent your Profile from being seen by others (we feel this would be an unlikely course of action).
Apart from the site Administrator, you are only person able to amend your Account.
Changing your password is self-explanatory – Following the receipt of the initial Password, it is essential for your own security, that you change this password to something that only you will remember. But make sure you take a careful note of this new password!
When you do change your password, remember to press Update Password before you leave this page.
This provides a list of the current Association members and links to their profile page.
Recent amendments to the Data Protection legislation dictate that we can no longer display personal information like email address or phone number. We are making inquiries to try to find a way round this.
