Did you know that as a Chapter President, Secretary, or Treasurer you can now add a member to your chapter without asking them to complete a paper Membership Application?
New or Existing Members (who are Society subscription holders only, are members of Frank Thorne chapter, or are interested in Dual Membership with your chapter) can be added electronically. The new member will be invited to complete their membership application online, including payment. The paper application has not gone away. If that is your preferred way, no problem! We've found that this is an easier way to add members to your chapter.
If a member is interested in transferring chapter membership, a paper application is still necessary.
Anyone also named as a "Chapter Membership Development" role in the Member Center can also access this functionality. This is perfect for your Membership VP to be able to add members to your chapter.
Once you have someone who is interested in joining your chapter, consider using this new functionality! Here is the information you'd need from them:
- First and Last Name
- Email Address (Important Note: All accounts and Memberships in the BHS Member Center are connected by Email Address. If you try and add a member who has the same email address, it will automatically re-direct you to add an existing member instead of a new member)
That's it! No more dealing with sensitive information such as credit card numbers, addresses, phone numbers, etc. If they are an existing member of the Society, you just need their Membership ID# to add them to your chapter.
We've created a tutorial on how to add a member to your chapter using the Member Center. If you're having any trouble, please reach out to our Customer Service Team at firstname.lastname@example.org or 800.876.SING.
Further, you can also do this from a phone or tablet! Perfect for adding someone at a rehearsal or chapter meeting on the spot!
