NEW WEBSITE!!!

We’ve received a lot of feedback from our membership and vendors regarding the NOPUG website including user experience, ability to register for meetings, and the ability to locate information.  We listened and starting with our July meeting the new NOPUG website is online!  The board looks forward to hearing from our members about their experiences with the new site, and the continued improvements we will be making to it.

What will the new site mean to you as users?

1) Users WILL NOT need to login to the NOPUG homepage to locate information about upcoming events/meetings.  Select the “NEXT MEETING” link and view the agenda, location, directions, and any/all information related to that meeting – NO LOGIN REQUIRED!
2) Users WILL need to login to the NOPUG site in order to register to attend an upcoming event/meeting.  Registration is quick, easy, and intuitive – much simpler than our prior process!
3) Dedicated Vendor Area in which to register for upcoming events/meetings, use PayPal to pay for their participation, with other functions coming soon.
4) The updated site is compatible for mobile devices such as tablets and smart phones!  This will increase your access to the site and content found in it!

As a member you will still be able to utilize your existing username, but will need to generate a new password for your individual account – no way existed to transfer over your existing passwords from our prior software to the new application we are now using (we apologize for that).  Here’s what you need to do:

1) Select the “NEXT MEETING” link at the top of the homepage.  Choose the “LOST YOUR PASSWORD” link.  Input your username or email address that is linked to your account and pick “GET NEW PASSWORD“.  An email will automatically be generated and sent to that email address where you can change your password as desired.

IMPORTANT NOTE:  YOU ONLY HAVE TO DO THIS ONCE!!!!  After you have changed your password you can just login to register for a meeting via the “NEXT MEETING” link.

April 23, 2015 – GOJO (Theme: Creo Illustrate & Creo View)

The newsletter is being finalized and will be sent out to the membership and our vendors and prospective vendors in the next week.  The link enabling registration for the July meeting has been activated and instructions on how to register for the meeting will be posted on this page as well as via the Next Meeting link on the site.  Thank you in advance for your cooperation and patience as we transition going forward.
