Default EC minutes are "Protected Content?"

So, they have minutes finally posted, but when I try to access them, they're apparently "Protected Content." Yes, I'm logged in.

I guess they don't want members seeing what they talk about at EC meetings.

tells me the same.
went to profile and checked, it shows my # and all that, but
the birthdate field was in a red square, and there was an error message at the top of the page demanding that the date be entered in the proper format as 28-08-2018. now, when i tried to use that format in the birthdate field it demands a mm/dd/yyyy format.
might be a part of the problem...

oh yeah, got my renewal notice in mail yesterday...

Mine was correct. Why make it so hard to get information?

noticed that there is no "member type" entry in that field either, and no way for me to edit it.

Would appear you guys irritated someone in Muncie!

That or you've found yet another bug on the new and improved super web site!

The concept of keeping the membership informed in a timely manner has always been lost on Muncie. Which supports the idea that they do not see the membership as participants in AMA business and decision making process.

exactly,...... "membership = payroll" and that's about all. i'll bet 90% of the membership is through on line means and that insulates any governing body's actions from scrutiny . I wonder what the boards' payroll would be if the internet didn't exist ?.

So I get an email today from HRH, the new ED, a.k.a. "Marketing Guy" who says "Mr. Mellott, The minutes can be found in the members only section under Executive Council." So I go there using the method below. And of course what do I get? Yep. "Protected Content."

You'd think he'd actually check that it works before sending a customer there. But I guess the unwashed masses that are the AMA members don't rate that level of customer service.

Franklin, haven't you learned yet that you are just a number with $$$ next to it in the eyes of "TAJ MUNCIE"?
I'm actually surprised that someone hasn't tried filing anti-trust papers yet, considering the AMA is trying to force anyone that flies anything to be a member

They still don't have been set up to log in. They got it fixed last time I couldn't after an hour on the phone. This is getting to be past PIA.

Who was the "genius" that decided to roll out a completely new and apparently untested website, in the middle of summer, when it's likely to see the highest traffic?

You mean the "genius" with no common sense, don't you?

I got a copy from Joyce H. yesterday.

For those that are members, suggest you ask her for a copy. Pay close attention to the CFO section.

They must had liked the performance and results from the upgrades at RCUand hired that guy.
And look where RCU is at compared to before it was sold out and went through a bunch of "upgrades".
I just now started to come back and deal with the program quirks over dealing with politics on the other sites.
Can't do that with the AMA, no one else to go to.

Do you need the EC e-mail addresses? That's where I'd send a complaint.
