Members are provided with accounts to login and access secure member's only content and areas of the web site including calendar duties volunteering.
As a new member with an email address an account is set up for you and you will be sent an account activation email. The activation email contains a link which will take you to a page on the site where you can set your username and password for your web account. Usernames must be unique so if you enter one already in use you may be prompted to try another.
If you do not have the activation email you should contact the office who will be able to check that your email address on the system is correct and resend the activation email.
Once your account is activated you can login to view Member's only content including the Member directory and view the full calendar and functions including volunteering for duties.
To login you can either click on the link at the top right of any page or, if you click on member's only content (there will be a padlock symbol next to the link), you will be prompted to login to access that content.
Who can have an account to login to the site?
Only current members can have enabled accounts for the web site.
Privacy and Junk email/spam etc.
The web site does not allow any email addresses or personal data to be visible to non members on the internet unless specifically requested to do so. You can select various options to control how other members see your profile in the directory, if enabled, and also control how other members may contact you.
Why do I need a username rather than just me email address (like Facebook etc)
Usernames allow the use of a single email account for multiple members whilst allowing each member an individual account - for example in a family scenario.
I don't have an activation email
Please contact the office who can check your email address on the system and resend the activation email.
I have an activation code but no email
Click on the link 'I need to activate my account' on the login page and enter the code, you can then set your username and password. You can click here to go to the login page.
I forgot my username
Click on the link 'I forgot my Username' on the login page, you must enter your email address and will receive an email with your username. You can click here to go to the login page.
I forgot my password
You must reset your password. Nobody can see, tell you your current password or set it for you. Click on the link 'I forgot my Password' on the login page, you must enter your username and will receive an email with a secure link to set a new password. You can click here to go to the login page. Once a password reset has been issued your old password will not work and your account is locked until a password reset is succesful.
I still cannot login
If you are confident of your username and password are correct but have tried multiple times to login to your account, the account may have become locked-out due to repeated login failures. This is a security feature to prevent others accessing your account. You can either complete a password reset which will also clear any lock, or contact the Office who can clear the lock.
Additionally administrators can suspend accounts if necessary.
I am concerned that my account details may be compromised
Reset your password to a new password as soon as possible, once a password reset has been issued your old password will not work and your account is locked until a password reset is successful.
