ATLA is in the process of a major system upgrade. In late July, current members received an email indicating that membership renewals will be through the new MyATLA web portal this year. As we work to improve your online member experience, we wanted to explain how to continue to access members-only content not included in the new My ATLA web portal during this transition period.
Over the next several months, ATLA members will have two separate login credentials.
The first credential is the username and password you have used in the past to access members-only information. For the next several months, this credential should still be used to access the ATLA Community section of the website which houses ATLA member publications (TheologyCataloging Bulletin, Summary of Proceedings, and printable copies of the ATLA Newsletter) as well as Board materials (meeting minutes and the Board Policy Manual). This login credential will also continue to give you access to the Members Only content on the ATLA Newsletter site. We have currently removed the “Forgot your password” link from the ATLA website as we are in the process of making these upgrades. If you require assistance logging in with these credentials, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your second login credential will be for the new My ATLA web portal, which is where you will be able to view membership information, update contact information, track participation in member benefit programs, register for events such as the annual conference, access the membership directory, and pay any open invoices.
The first time you access the My ATLA web portal, you will need to reset your password by selecting “Forgot your password” link. This new system follows best practices in password management, so moving forward members will be able to manage their login credentials from the portal itself without having to contact ATLA staff. The link to the new My ATLA web portal will be sent with renewals in late August.
If you have any questions or need assistance in accessing these websites, please reach out to us at email@example.com.
