Frequently Asked Questions

  1. How do I access the Member Center area of the state website?

    For that information, check the last page of your Oregon News state newsletter. The  Password is listed there. Type that into the Member Center box on the Home page of this website. (All members use the same simple code.)

  2. What is in the Member Center area of the website?

    That area contains the forms, documents, bylaws, position descriptions–all the things that would interest members, but not necessarily be of interest to the general public.

  3. Who is eligible for membership?

    Since we are an organization begun by and for and university/college graduates, there is a membership eligibility requirement of an associate degree (or higher) from an accredited college or university.
