How do I register for an account on the website?
Step 1. Go to our home page and click the “New to our Branch?” graphic (Big & Little Sir's faces) in the upper left corner of the screen.
Step 2. Fill in the required information of name, nickname, address, phone & email to create your account. Make sure you click on the SUBMIT button at the bottom of the page. The information submitted will be sent to a site administrator to verify your membership status.
Step 3. Once confirmed as an active Branch member by the site administrator (this usually happens within minutes but if an administrator is not available it could take longer), you will be emailed a password and username (your email address) which will allow you to logon to the web site.
Is there a way to find out what has changed on the web site since my last visit without looking at each page?
Absolutely! The “What’s New” feature located on the home page provides an easy way to see only the changes or new content since your last visit. Just type in the number of days since your last visit and you will see a list of linkable items that take you right to the changed web pages. Click here

What do I do if I forget my password?
It's easy to retrieve your password if you forget it. All you have to do is enter your userid (your email address) into the logon screen dialogue box, skip over the password box and click on the "Forgot Password" link. The system will email your password to you immediately. Once you logon, you should go to the My Profile link under the MEMBER menu where you can change your password to something you can more easily remember OR just write it down somewhere you will remember.
What happened to the old Member Directory with photos of everyone?
With our new website template, there is a built in directory feature that has powerful search features making it easier to find who you are looking for. Under MEMBERS -> MEMBER DIRECTORY
you can search and view by multiple criteria. Once you find an individual select VIEW to see their picture and profile details. Also, under the same page you can download the Printer Friendly Directory which is updated monthly. This contains the same details including photos.
What is my website user-id?
It is your full email address.
Where do I send my questions, comments or suggestions for this web site?
Why do I have to register to access some of the pages on this site?
Registration to the site allows us to confirm that only branch 128 members have access to member directory information which contains address and contact information. It also is needed to take advantage of the RSVP functionality to keep track of event/meeting attendance.
Why do I keep getting knocked out of the web site and have to log back in?
Some members have complained that they keep getting "kicked" out of the system and are forced to log back in. What is happening is that they are closing the internet browser window rather than using the back button to return to the previous screen or using the navigation menus to move around the site. When you close the browser window and you have not asked for your password to be remembered, you will be forced to log on again. This is set up this way per recommendation of the web site company to avoid the issue of continually opening new browser windows which can cause it's own set of problems.
PLEASE REMEMBER TO USE THE BACK BUTTON OR MENU CHOICES TO MOVE AROUND THE SITE
