Your ACOSA membership includes a number of benefits many of which can be accessed when you sign into the ACOSA website. Upon signing up you should have been emailed login information.
When you go to our website click on “membership login” on the upper right side of the screen (below the social media follow buttons). You will be prompted to enter your username and password. If you did not receive your login info, or have misplaced it, click “forgot password” on the login screen. Note you need to have access to the email account you provided on the membership application. If this information needs to be updated please contact email@example.com.
Signing into the website enables you to access the Journal of Community Practice, comment on blog posts, subscribe to the blog, and access other members only resources. Once signed in you can opt to sign up to receive emails alerts about new blog posts.
You can also manage your membership profile. The membership profile section allows you to update your membership information. Additionally this section allows members to:
Update username and password.
Change contact information
Track volunteer history within ACOSA
List areas of interest
Post job openings.
View membership status and see renewal dates (note: your membership dates are now based on the date you joined/last renewed)

The new website has a membership directory. This directory can only be accessed by members when logged in. Members can opt in or out of the directory and control what information is shown. To do this you need to login to the website and go to you profile. In the “Personal Info” section click on “Standard Membership Directory.” To change what info is on the directory or to opt out entirely click on the drop down menu under “General Info.” In the directory you can add your social media networks, bio, and upload a profile picture.
