The NACCU Listserv

Posted By Crystal Bazarnic, Thursday, March 17, 2016

The NACCU Listserv

The naccu-l listserv is a wonderful resource for our institutional members. (Sorry, corporates - but look for new ways for you to engage with the community soon!).

Right now, there are some very interesting discussions taking place on the listserv:

  • Door access requests
  • Off-campus programs
  • Is your ID considered a state-issued ID?
  • Expiration dates

It's a fantastic resource for bouncing ideas off your peers, seeing how they do things, and getting feedback about what you are doing.

BUT - 

You have to ask to be included in it.

The listserv is hosted by our friends at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill. So it is not in any way connected to our member database.

This means if you want to add new people to the listserv or change your email address, you need to send an email to listmgr@naccu.org to inform us.

To add someone to the listserv:

Send an email to listmgr@naccu.org with the following information:

Name
Organization
Email address

One thing to note is that if the individual uses an alias for email, we need the real email address in order for them to be able to post on the listserv. So if their alias is john@youruniversity.edu, but their real email address that points to that simpler one is john.mcdude.mydept@email.services.youruniversity.edu, we need the second one for the listserv. You can keep the alias for the member database.

Please make sure you add the individual to your organization before requesting listserv access. 

To change your email address in the listserv

Send your name and your new email address to listmgr@naccu.org. Bam. Done.

Remember that the listserv database is not connected to the member database, so be sure to change your email address on your profile as well.

"I love the IDEA of the listserv.
            But I hate all those emails!"

You can choose to receive your listserv messages in another format. 

Mail: Receive messages to your email address as they are contributed to the list. This is the default setting, and the typically the preferred member type.

 

Digest: Receive all of the daily messages in digest format in one e-mail.

 

MIME Digest: Receive all of the daily messages in one e-mail in MIME format. With MIME, each message is received as an attachment to the email.

 

Index: Receive a daily index of the subject lines of the messages of the day. You can then view them with the web interface.

 

Nomail: Don't receive list contributions to your e-mail address. You can view messages with the web interface.

 

To change to one of these other formats, just let us know at - you guessed it - listmgr@naccu.org.

 

Enjoy listservin'!

How to add a workshop or guest ticket to an existing registration

Posted By Crystal Bazarnic, Thursday, March 10, 2016

How to add a workshop or guest ticket to an existing registration

Cross-posted from NACCU 2016 blog

You've already registered for the conference.

But you've just read about the NPI, Professional Development Workshops, or the campus tour of UC Berkeley and you really want to go!

Or - you just found out your spouse can come with you and he/she wants to go to the NACCU Night Out event.

How do you add one of these items to your registration?

1.    Log into the site using your individual login credentials

2.    On the “Manage Profile” page, go to Event Registrations under Invoicing, Payments & History. A quick link to this page is here (opens in new window): http://naccu.org/members/my_events.asp

3.    Click the icon to the left of your name under NACCU 2016. Looks like this: 

4.    Go through the registration process, selecting the events/sessions you would like to add.

5.    Checkout – your total will only include the sessions/events you added if you have already paid for conference registration.

If you require assistance, please contact us through the Contact Us link at the top of the page.

NACCU Career Center

Posted By Crystal Bazarnic, Tuesday, March 8, 2016

NACCU Career Center

The Career Center is another new self-service feature on the new website.

Posting job opportunities on the website has always been a benefit of NACCU membership, but now you can easily post them yourself!

The Career Center is found under the COMMUNITY tab in the top menu..

Once there, you can view open positions or submit your own. To see all openings, click on Search Openings, then leave all fields blank.

You can also subscribe to the Career Center to be notified whenever new positions are posted.

If you would like me to share your opening on NACCU's social media channels, just email me at office@naccu.org. 

RESUMES

A related website feature is the ability to add your resume to the site - which you can do even if you aren't currently seeking a new position. It is another way to share your experience with other members.

To upload your resume, go to Create Resume/CV  over on the right under My Profile. Once you enter your resume information, you will have some options regarding privacy.

Adding individuals to your NACCU membership

Posted By Crystal Bazarnic, Monday, March 7, 2016

Adding individuals to your NACCU membership

Are there other people in your office who would like to take advantage of all the great benefits of NACCU membership?

Perhaps they would like to subscribe to the listserv, meet other NACCU members, participate in networking, attend NACCU events, and view and download files.

One of the great things about your membership is that the number of individuals you can add to your account is unlimited!

However - adding them requires instructions.

The first thing you have to do is login using your Organization login. The person who set up your membership or the primary representative should have received a login for your school or company. If you aren't that person, you will either need to have that person take it from here, or use your powers of persuasion to have that person share the login credentials with you.

If it isn't working, try signing OUT of your individual account first.

Once you are successfully logged in as your organization, you will find yourself on the Manage Profile page. You want to scroll down the page just a bit to a section called Manage Representatives. Click on it. (If you don't see that section, you are likely still logged into your individual account.) 

Once on that page, scroll down, and you will see a big blank text box that allows you to enter email addresses.

Simply enter the email addresses of anyone you would like to add under your organization membership and click SUBMIT. They will receive an invitation to add themselves to the database under your organization. Now your part is done, and it is all up to them.

Once they add themselves, they can login to the site. They will need to let us know at listmgr@naccu.org whether they would like to subscribe to the listserv though, as that is a different database.

As always, you can contact us if you require assistance. If you are confused about individual vs. organization logins, go back in time to the previous post in this blog, and get the info.

Individual vs. organization accounts

Posted By Crystal Bazarnic, Friday, March 4, 2016

Individual vs. Organization accounts

Let's talk about how member accounts are set up in our new database.

When an organization (a campus or a business) joins NACCU, the organization owns the membership.

Each individual is a sub-account under the main account.

This can be confusing though, because along with the main account comes TWO logins to the website.

You have an organization account, and an individual account, each with its own login.

 

The primary representative or the person who sets up their organization's membership will receive the login for the organization by email after joining NACCU.

 

Each individual will receive their individual login information after being added to the database.

 

Individual profiles are used for:

  • event registrations (such as NACCU 2016 registration)
  • personal data such as your bio, photos, resume, group memberships, posting in forums, commenting on articles and blogs, making connections with other members, and anything you do as an individual

 

Organizational profiles are used for:

  • membership dues purchase/renewals
  • member profile data (coming soon) - this will include data from the Member Profile spreadsheet for institutional members, or Corporate Profiles for corporate members.
  • adding, deleting or attaching individual representatives to your organization

 

Think of it this way - anything that an INDIVIDUAL does is done through your individual account. Would your school uproot itself from the ground and attend the conference? No, let's hope not. So you wouldn't use the organization login to register for the conference.

Just remember to login using your individual account unless you are paying dues, adding or removing individuals, or updating your organization's data and all should be ok. 

If you ever need assistance with your login or find yourself confused, you can contact us. There's a link up there at the top of this page (and every page on the site.)

Easy-peasy file sharing on the new naccu.org

Posted By Crystal Bazarnic, Thursday, March 3, 2016

Easy-peasy file sharing on the new naccu.org

One of the most exciting benefits of our new website is that you can self-manage a lot of what you do. There are (and will be) so many ways to interact with the site.

Nothing illustrates that better than our File Libraries

If you go to Resources after logging in, you'll see a sub-menu called File Libraries. Once you hover over that, another sub-menu will pop out with a variety of file collections and photo galleries.

In the past, if you wanted to share your RFPs, policy and procedure manuals, job descriptions, marketing materials, card designs, or card program logos, you would have to email it to us and wait for us to upload it.

Now, you can easily add your documents and images yourself.

Try it now - do you have something you would like to share with other members? These files and images are only available to NACCU members and are invisible to public site visitors.

Welcome to the new NACCU website!

Posted By Crystal Bazarnic, Sunday, February 28, 2016

Welcome to the new NACCU website!

Hi all. Crystal here. 
Very wow

Being able to have blogs on our new website is pretty exciting, as is everything the new website offers to members.

There is so much to share with you about what you can do on this website. I didn't want to overwhelm everyone with constant emails, so this blog is perfect for sharing website info with those who want it.

It's quite an upgrade over our old website in every way. There are going to be so many opportunities for you to interact with the site and other members.

I will be using this blog to share tips and instructions with you. I am even going to try my hand at doing some instructional videos soon - so stay tuned for that.

That said, the staff is still learning all the intricacies about how to do everything on the new site ourselves. So your patience - and help - is very appreciated.

How can you help? You can report anything you see that seems wrong or broken. Or even poor grammar or misspellings or areas that need more instruction or information. Much of this site has been developed quickly due to unforeseen issues with content migration. So mistakes are very possible - coffee only helps so much at 10PM. 

You may comment on the blog posts to ask questions.

This site is for you. So we want it to be everything you want it to be. 

Subscribe to this blog so I can share more with you.

Talk to you soon.
