The 'Member Info' menu has a sub-menu 'Member Directory' and if you click on that you will see the Member Directory page with search options.
There are 3 drop down menus: Region, Yacht Club, and Member Type. You select one, two, or all three to narrow the display of current members. NOTE – after you make your selections you must click on “Search”. [Do not enter anything in the "Search For" space unless you want to specify a particular member to look for. If you do, a partial name is okay as well. Entering "Sch”"will result in a list of members whose last name begins with "Sch".] The resulting list of members will be displayed under Search Results.
- Selecting Region="ECESA" will give all current members from the Eastern region.
- Selecting Region="All Types" and selecting Member Type="owner", will give a list of all current boat owner memberships (those people who have a current boat sticker on their hull).
- Selecting Yacht Club="Mendota" would display all current members from the Mendota YC. However, you cannot tell what type of member each person is unless you also select Member Type and choose one of the drop down choices.
Basically, selecting more drop-down menu choices narrows the search results.
The "View" pick in the Search Results will give you detailed information about the member, to include contact information, yacht club, sail number, …
If members add their social networking information, that too is available. Members can also upload pictures, provide a biography, indicate their interests, and outline their achievements.
NOTE: You have to be logged in to see member detail information.
The Member Directory shows current members. All annual memberships expire at the end of February. However, I have set a grace period of two months so that members will continue to show in the Member Directory two months after their membership expires. If a member does NOT renew by the start of May - they will not be included in the Member Directory.
