Membership in MSLA
Important changes are coming to MSLA! We are implementing Wild Apricot membership management software. Wild Apricot is a comprehensive member management system that will eventually incorporate our membership portal, listserv, and website; it will also allow for online forums and other new ways to communicate with one another! The goal is to condense systems and make joining, renewing, and connecting within MSLA MUCH simpler for you.
MSLA will implement Wild Apricot in 3 phases. First to come is the membership portal. As of July 1, you will need to create a new account in order to search the membership directory or renew your membership. Very shortly, you will be receiving an email from Wild Apricot with an invitation to set up your password. Or, after July 1, you may simply click on the “membership portal” link on our website, click on “log in” in the upper right-hand corner, enter the email address affiliated with your MSLA membership, and click on the “forgot password” link.
We will be working on migrating the listserv over the summer, and by the end of 2022, we hope to have a new website launched as well. Eventually, you will use your new account to access the member section of the website with the directory, forums, and other member-only information.
We are very much looking forward to having one streamlined system for all member communications. If you have any questions about your account or Wild Apricot, you can contact Jen or Emily at the addresses below.
Thanks for your membership in MSLA and stay tuned for more Wild Apricot news later this year!
