REDESIGN

Our new website has 'my account' feature, incorporates CCOE sites, much more

—by Paul M. Kubek

We have launched a new website. It has the same address as our old site but a new look, feel, and functionality. We need your help with the transition by creating (or re-creating) your own membership account, which is free. The new  My Account feature is the doorway to our enhanced online learning community and helps you manage a few things for yourself via these five tabs: 

  • My Profile
 Your contact information & communication preferences (e.g., email news); some required fields for event registration and resource downloads
  • My Role
 A little info about your role in healthcare and/or behavioral healthcare to help us plan events and services
  • My Events
 Event registration and attendance history, including payments & CEUs
  • My Resources
 Downloads of resources & tools (e.g., PDF booklets & posters, mp3 audio)
  • My Discussions
 Ask questions, get answers, share ideas with peers in Ohio, throughout the US, & around the globe about services for people with mental illness or co-occurring mental illness and substance use disorders
   

CREATE YOUR ACCOUNT

  • Click "create account" (right side of the thin gray navigation bar) or click here
  • Complete the form
  • Remember (or write down) the password that you enter into the form
  • An authentication/verification email will be sent to you by our system
    • This security feature ensures that no one else is trying to use your email address.
    • The email from us may take a few minutes or more to arrive, depending upon the volume of Internet traffic.

    • You are now ready to register for events, download resources, participate in online discussions, and more ...



EMAIL ADDRESS & PASSWORD

Your email address and password-of-choice are essential for creating and managing your free membership account. Our new site will not let you use someone else's email, such as your supervisor's or a coworker's. If you do not have your own email address (work or personal email), you may obtain one online for free: 

Lost or Forgot Your Password ?

  • Click "sign in" thin gray navigation bar or (click here).
  • Click "Lost Your Password?" on sign-in page
  • Enter the email address that you used to create your account (or system looks for an exact match)
  • Our system will send you two different emails:
    • (1 ) Authentication/verification email:  open it and click the link to "authenticate/verify" your request for a new password; the system will then send you another message.
    • (2 ) New-password email:  open it and copy and paste the new password into the "sign-in" form or type it into the form
  • Save the new password and use it to log into our site
  • Change or update your password:  click "my account" (thin gray nav bar), go to "my profile" tab

 


EVENT REGISTRATION

Each participant must create his or her own membership account and register online. The data you input helps us manage the following:

  • Seating capacity/availability
  • Sign-in at events
  • Payments
  • Attendance verification
  • Surveys
  • Communicating with participants (e.g., registration and payment confirmation)
  • Issuing certificates of attendance and CEUs
  • More

 Create your free account to get started (see above) and expect the following:

  • Receive confirmation emails from us
  • Edit your event registration any time before the registration deadline (e.g., change workshop selections)
  • View your event-attendance history, payment history, and CEUs earned via "my account/ my events" tab
  • Update your contact information
