Did you know that as a WOCN member you can easily and quickly network with other Society members through the Member Message Center on wocn.org? The member message center is as simple as emailing a friend or colleague. This blog will show you how to access and use the member message center. If you have any questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Accessing the Message Center
Step 1: Sign into your Member Center profile on the wocn.org homepage.
Step 2: Once you are signed in to your member center profile, click on “Messages” listed under “MY PROFILE.” This will take you to the message center.
Note: If you have new, unread messages in your inbox you will see the word “NEW” next to “Messages.”
Message Center Preferences
Step 1: Go to “Quick Jump To…” and select “My Preferences.”
Step 2: Once you are on the My Preferences page, you can customize the notifications you wish to receive in your message center inbox.
Viewing and Sending Messages
Once you are in the message center, you can view messages in your inbox, view your sent messages, message a member or create a new folder. You will be able to see right away if you have any unread messages waiting in your inbox.
Step 1: To view your inbox or sent messages, simply click on either link under “Message Center.”
Step 2: To message a member, simply clink on the link under “Message Options.” After you click “Message a Member” you will be prompted to search the name of the person you wish to contact.
Note: You can also do a filtered search by group (i.e. Committees, Regions & Affiliates, Volunteers, etc.), country or by location (City, State or Zip Code.)
Step 3: Once you search a member’s name, a list of matching results will appear along with a map showing that person’s location.
Step 4: Hover over the name of the member you wish to contact, and click on “Message Me” to begin networking similar to email!
Step 5: After you click “Message Me” you will be prompted to write a new message. Simply type your message then press the orange “Send Now” button when you are finished.
Note: You will receive a notification if you message was sent or unable to send.
You are now ready to send and receive messages through the member message center! We hope you find this feature to be a useful, easy networking tool. If you have any questions, please email us at email@example.com.
