I Never Seem to Get Informational Emails From NYS GIS Association

If you have a gmail account, please be aware that Google puts all mail chimp and other email service messages on the promotions tab automatically. Same with any .org emails. You can use the gmail client to move NYS GIS Association messages over to the primary tab so that future messages don’t get missed.

That’s it!

I tried to create a profile, but it says I already have one!

If you already have a record in the database and you try to create another one you will see this error:

The following errors were found on the form. Please go back and resubmit your information:

An account already exists for this email. Please check the Members Directory to make sure you are not already in the database.

You do not need to create another profile and only need to log in to renew your membership.  If you’ve forgotten your password, use the Forgot Password link on the Login page.

Error Message:   Sorry login was not successful, please try again. Please check the email address and password.

If you receive this error message: Sorry login was not successful, please try again. Please check the email address and password.

Go back and check your information. If you get this message again, go back to the join page (click tab at top of page) and check if you have ever been a member and if you are currently a member.
