Created: 16 August 2013
We have revamped our website to give it an up-to-date look and to provide you with the most user friendly system. We know you will like the changes.
First of all, September 1st marks the new 2014 membership year (runs September 1-August 31 each year). You are a current 2013 member, however, you will need to renew beginning September 1st to stay active. Registration for the convention will also begin September 1. You may renew and join on the website beginning September 1st, or you may print off the renewal/registration form and send it in with a check beginning September 1st. If you choose, you may also wait to receive the mailing (Early September) to fill out the renewal/registration form and send it in.
As we are moving to the new site, old passwords are no longer valid. To receive a new password, you will need to click on "Member Login" in the upper right side of the homepage (www.abca.org). A login screen will pop-up and at the very bottom of that screen, you will need to click on "Forgot Login". It will then bring you to a page where you will need to enter your e-mail address. Once you enter your e-mail address and press "Send Password," in short time, you will receive an e-mail to the e-mail address you entered providing you with a temporary password. You will then be able to go back to the "Member Login" and type in your Username (e-mail address) and password (password sent to you in the requested password e-mail) and then press "Login". You will then be logged in and allowed to view all portions of the website.
Once logged in, you can then click on "My Profile" at the top of the site next to "Resources". Once you click on "My Profile," you will then be able to hover over the "Edit" link with your cursor and hit "Update Profile". Here, you can push either "Portrait" or "Contact Info." You will want to push "Contact Info" in order to change your password. In the "Contact Info" go down to "Change Password" and enter the password you wish to have. Right below it, re-enter the password in the "Verify Password" field. Once you have changed the password and verified the password, then scroll to the bottom and push "Update." Your password will then be changed to the one you entered. From this point forward, you will then login with the e-mail you entered and the password you changed yours to. You may wish to not change your password and just use the one that is provided to you in the initial requested password e-mail that you receive. Just make sure to write that password down so you know what it is.
For those of you who's e-mail has changed from the e-mail you joined/renewed with for 2013, you will need to e-mail us at
and provide us with your correct e-mail and the password you wish to have. We will then update you to that e-mail you provide and that will be your username and we will change the password to the one you provide and that will be your password.
Thank you for your patience and understanding with the process of moving to the new website. Please e-mail us at
with any questions at all. We know you will enjoy the new site! Have a great fall....
