We are thrilled to announce the launch of our new online membership registration system. Now immediately available to you all as part of our 2023 membership drive!
Why the change?
While many of you have used our website in past years to become WNA members, the process had room for improvement. Members told us it was often confusing to complete, and volunteer organizers spent a lot of time in the backend trying to wrangle it all.
So, we began investing heavily this entire year to resolve all this, making it easier for you to support the WNA as members and easier for our volunteer organizers to support the community in return.
- A shorter and simpler process: Fewer steps, clearer instructions, and an easier-to-navigate user interface aim that make the experience simpler and faster.
- A mobile-friendly user interface: A mobile-friendly experience means you can now easily complete your membership on the go.
- Secure credit card payments: We added credit cards as a new payment method, while still supporting PayPal too.
One piece of a bigger investment Understand this new system is just one part of a larger investment delivering many other advantages like more exclusive member benefits, more advanced content management, easier renewals, and much more!
Our new three step process
Ready to become a WNA member? See the instructions below. It’s as easy as 1-2-3.
1. Create an account
Create a user account. You can do this by either selecting Sign up from the menu at the top of any page (including this one 😊).
What if I already have an account? All accounts from prior years are now obsolete because we have migrated to a new, more advanced membership management system. If you have not created a new westmorland-neighborhood.net account since last year, please go ahead and do so now using the method pictured below!
Complete the user registration form. You know the drill. Provide your name, email, phone, etc. to complete the form and click Submit to create your account.
Lastly, confirm your email address. Look for an email with the subject Email verification at Westmorland Neighborhood. Click the link within.
Congratulations! The first step is complete. You are an active user. Now, let’s become a member.
What if you don't see the email? Please be sure to check your spam. Again, the subject should be Email Verification at Westmorland Neighborhood. Reach out to us if you continue to experience issues.
2. Register your household
Find the membership form. Log in to the website (see Sign in above) and select Become a member from the menu at the top of any page (including this one 😊).
Add your household address. You should now see the membership form. Complete the first section by providing your address.
Add your household members. Next, add any adults and children to your household. To do this, provide their names and information in the forms and click add.
Next, select your membership directory preferences. Becoming a WNA member means getting access to our member directory. Choose (1) whether you’d like to opt-out of your household being listed in the directory and (2) whether you’d like a print version of the directory.
Print vs. online member directory The print directory is traditionally issued every other year. However, an always up-to-date, digital version of the directory is available 24/7 online.
Lastly, add any activities you’re interested in. These activities include volunteer opportunities for adults and work opportunities for kids. Check the boxes to signal your household members’ interest in each activity.
Almost done! Select Continue to payment.
3. Select your membership level
Select the level that is right for you. On the next page, you’ll find three membership levels. Choose the one that’s right for you.
Understand that membership is the main source of revenue for all of WNA’s operations, services, and events. The more you support the more our volunteers can do for you and our community!
Select a payment method. Use your credit card by selecting Stripe. Or use PayPal. Then click Submit, and complete payment through your chosen method.
You membership is now complete. (Look for a receipt in your email.)
That’s it 🙂
On behalf of the Westmorland Neighborhood Association (WNA) and our team of volunteer organizers, thank you for your support!
