    There are a couple of ways to handle family members if you have a family membership.

    1. Create a separate directory entry for them - Wild Apricot has a concept of bundled memberships. The person who signs up for a family membership is designated the Bundle Administrator.  In their profile entry, you can add Bundle Members.  Bundle Members will have their own entry in the directory and log-on capability, get emails sent out by the system, everything a regular member gets, except maybe renewal notices.  Since we entered most people into the database, there are a couple of places where we chose one person over another as the Bundle Adminstrator, but we can change that.   This is the way to handle memberships that have independently active boaters in the household.
    2. List them under your entry - we have a free form field where you can add their names.  This is the way to handle most children, uninterested significant others, pets, or whatever.

    The BWA Wild Apricot Site (this site) is up and running.  To see the member directory, the handbook, or any other members-only content, you'll need to log onto the site.  Most members won't have a password unless you've joined in the last couple of weeks.  You'll have to hit the Forgot Password link.  The system will send out an email with instructions on how to set your password - make sure you use the email id that would have been in old the handbooks, or one that you gave Heather recently.

    To view or change your directory entry, use the View Profile link. You are encouraged to upload a photo of yourself when you are updating your entry.  Please use a "head shot" type photo - its hard to see faces in wide panoramic shots.  You can create a photo album under your profile if you want to add other pictures.

    If you have any questions, or comments, let me or Heather know.
