Q: I forgot my username and/or password. How do I get this information?

A: Your username is typically either your email address or your first initial of your first name and your last name, all in lowercase (i.e. Jane Doe's username if she didn't have an email address in our database would be jdoe). If you forgot your password, click on the "Forgot your password" link below the sign in boxes. This will take you to a page where you can enter your email address or username, and then receive a link to reset your password.  Any further questions about your login info?  Email us at info@ameriburn.org.

Q: What are all the preference settings for?

A: Editing your preferences allows you to manage various notifications and features of the new ABA Member Center. Click here to view more information on these various setting preferences.

Q: What are connections?

A: Connections in the ABA Member Center are similar to "friends" on Facebook. You can request to create a connection with other ABA Members. Once another member has accepted your connection request, they will be added to your list of connections. This allows you to quickly locate their information, and quickly message one or more of your connections.

Q: How do I share a file with other committee/group members?

A: After logging in to the member center, click on the "groups" link on the left bar under My Profile. Then click on the group/committee name that you would like to share a file. Once on the group homepage, click on "Forums" in the menu on the right hand side of the page. Click on the "General Discussion" link, then either start a new topic (by clicking on Post New Topic), or click on an existing topic name, and on the following page, click "Post Reply". You will then be able to enter text and attach a file to the message for other members to see.

Q: What is the different between my "feed" and my "wall"?

A: Your feed is a summary of all your activity within the member center. Other members cannot view your feed. Your wall can be viewed by other members, and other members can also post messages to your wall. If you do not want your wall to be active and viewable by other members, you may turn it off by editing your preferences (see above).

Q: Why are my credentials showing up in the suffix field when I update my profile information?

A: Credentials are by default entered in the suffix field so that they will show up next to your name in directory searches. The suffix field has a limit on characters, so in some cases a member's full credentials could not fit in this field. You can view a member's full credentials by visiting their bio page. If you have a generational suffix for your name, that suffix comes before the credentials (i.e. Jr MD FACS). Commas are not allowed in the suffix field.

Q: How do I find out when my membership expires and view past dues receipts?

A: After logging in, click on the "Manage Profile" link in the left bar. On the next page, scroll to the bottom in the Account History section and click on "Membership". The resulting page will tell you when your membership is active until. If you have paid ABA dues after 9/15/2012, you should also see a transaction ledger. If you click on the icon under "Options" to the corresponding dues payment, you will be able to view a receipt for your dues payment.

Q: Where can I find content that was in the old member center?

A: After logging in, hover over the "Resources" menu item. You will see different items that together comprise the information from the old member center.
