Thanks to all of our members for your patience in allowing me amnesty from the weekly E-Flash.  This period allowed me time to get our new website launched and database organized.  Below is an explanation of how to access the members only portion of the website and the steps to the login process.  I would like to stress that this is new to all of us and appreciate your patience as we work through this together.

Who has access to the website?
Everybody!  Visit www.FAPSC.org and take a look around.  Lots of new features have been added per your requests. Check out the school directory.  Any student or visitor to our website can search a FAPSC member school by clicking on the school member directory and selecting to search by school name, city, state, zip and county.   Associate members can be searched  not only by company name but also by their products and services. Enhancements to both of these searches are being made to include descriptions for each associate member  information and a list of programs offered by each campus.

Access to the FAPSC members only portion of the website has been granted to all school and associate member primary contacts.  Emails were sent out on (insert date) to those persons.  If you did not receive an email and you are the company's main point of contact please email Wanda@FAPSC.org or call the FAPSC office directly at (850) 577-3139 and ask to speak to me. 

Steps to login:
1. Go to www.FAPSC.org and click on member login button at the top right of website.
2. User name is your first and last name. Use capital letters for the first letter in your name with no spaces. Usernames are case-sensitive. Example: JohnDoe
3. Password is the first letters of your first and last name and your unique member ID number(which was previously emailed to you). Passwords are case-sensitive. Example: JD123456
Once you have entered in the information you are brought to your member portal. In the member portal you will have the ability to update your information, renew your dues, visit the members only section, register for events, conference plus so much more.
