This message is aimed at those of you who are planning to come to the next BSRLM events on 9th and/or 10th June 2017 as a presenter or participant.
Friday 19th May 2017 is the deadline for proposal submissions for the Saturday event we would like to make this process as easy as possible as many of you attempt to log in to the new BSRLM website for the first or second time!!!
Vince has sent full and complete details of the process, but please note that you do need to follow these steps:
1. Log in to the new website (top right of the screen) using the username and password that was sent to you in the period 1st-16th December 2017 with the subject line “Welcome to the new BSRLM website – Important log-in information”.
Please check your spam/junk folders if you did not receive this email as we will have created your account automatically from our existing membership database and it will not be helpful if you to create a second log in on the website.
Also, if you first joined BSRLM many years ago, or have changed your work email address recently we may have a very out-of-date email address for you.
If you are intending to submit a session proposal and cannot locate your log in details, please email Alison (firstname.lastname@example.org) immediately (and well before 17:00 on Friday!) – Alison will do her best to resolve the issue for you.
2. On your first log-in to the new site you will be asked to update your membership information to ensure that we have correct details for you.
3. Once you are logged into the new website, please check your membership status as you do need to be a paid-up member for 2017 to attend (and possibly present) at BSRLM events. If there are any issues with your membership, please contact Rachel (R.G.Marks@brighton.ac.uk) immediately (and well before 17:00 on Friday!)
Many thanks for your patience as we transition to the new ways of working – and a reminder that all of the BSRLM exec officers carry out these roles in their own time alongside full-time academic posts! The new website is designed to make the administration of BSRLM a much more autonomous process for our members – but we all need to learn how to make the most of it!
