Changes to members login (Posted 3rd September)

03 September 2020 - 30 November 2020

We will be switching from using membership numbers as a login ID to using email addresses as login ID.

The benefits are:

  1. Improved security as Email addresses are not predictable
  2. Reduction in the number of interventions from the webmaster and elimination of a security risk
  3. Encourage members to ensure their email addresses are up to date with the Guild.
  4. Reduced GDPR risks

This an essential security improvement which has become the industry standard log in ID method.

We appreciate that this will cause some disruption so there will be a period of parallel running starting immediately and running until the end of November.

It is essential that you make sure a that your email address is up to date in the members database and please start to use that as your log in ID as soon as possible. Once you have used it once then that will become the only method open to you.
