    • Get the password 
    • Do not ever change the password, consult your President for help if necessary
    • Make a note of your credentials but keep them private
  • If you open any browser other than the recommended Google Chrome (like Edge or Safari), type into the search bar or URL  press Enter and you should see the Sign in button or perhaps you’ve logged in before and you see the round icon of your chapter’s logo or initial in the upper right corner.

  • If you need further assistance getting into the account and the sign-in calls for a verification code, text 708-217-6186, announce who you and your chapter are from and that you need the recently sent code. The code will be sent back to you.
