The below information is meant to give you a brief overview of the basics of how to navigate the EnglishUSA Website and better utilize the new benefits and functions available to members. You are encouraged to go beyond the basic sections and explore the website in more detail at your own pace. For any questions or concerns regarding the website, please contact the EnglishUSA office (email@example.com).
To log in to your profile*, first visit www.englishusa.org and select the sign-in section in the top right-hand corner of the homepage or in the Member Sign In box approximately halfway down the homepage.

*NOTE: Each program has a profile, which must be managed by the main program contact. In addition, each individual (up to 4 at each site) will have an individual profile that they can populate to better connect with other EnglishUSA members and member programs.
Once you have logged in to your individual profile there are several areas which may be of interest to you as a member. The next section will cover a few of the critical areas for you to know.
Once you have logged in to your profile, click Manage Profile in the right-hand side of the webpage.
By selecting Edit Bio, you can update your username, password, email address, physical address, phone numbers, employer information and much more. Be sure to periodically check to ensure that your information is current so that you don't miss out on the important information from EnglishUSA!
If you scroll down below the Edit Bio section, the next section you will see is the Invoicing, Payments & History section. For individuals, this is where you will access and pay any event invoices.
NOTE: An invoice will not be created until you update the information in your profile. We do require that member programs provide updated information about their program, including accreditation information, at the time of renewal.
For those who manage the program profiles, utilize this section to access and pay any open membership invoices. This section is also where you can find information on your membership status and expiration date.

EnglishUSA has several different forums with which you can engage on the website and/or subscribe to for email inbox notifications. We are initially starting with one general and six interest area forums based on feedback from our members.
We highly encourage all EnglishUSA members to subscribe at minimum to the "Open Member Forum" so that you will receive up-to-date information from the membership in your inbox. Eventually, the "Open Member Forum" will replace the current listserv in one of the final steps of our member consolidation.
