4. Select Update Profile to see the information transferred from our prior database to new website’s Membership Records.
a. During your Profile setup, please:
i. Confirm the existing information is correct, especially email address (see notes below) and phone numbers.
ii. Add missing information, such as Mailing Address (even if it is your VG address), Residence Status (helps us making better Selections in contacting you), phone numbers, Birthday, and Emergency Contact information.

iv. Choose your existing Role on the VGHA Board, Condos Board or Committees (to help in contacting you about meetings and events).
v. Enter your Social Media site information, including Nextdoor, Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin.
vi. Enter your Company Name and Company website information if you own a company or your company owns the property in Village Green.
b. Special notes about email addresses.
i. Please check your email address and make sure it is entered correctly.
ii. Each email address in our Membership Records must be unique.
iii. If you share an email address with your spouse or partner, please consider creating an email address unique to you so you may receive emails concerning Calendar/RSVP events, etc.
iv. If you don’t want to manage a second email account, consider forwarding the newly created personal email account to your main shared email account.
v. If you don’t have a personal email address or need to create a personal email account, you may want to consider either a Gmail or Outlook email address as either will allow you to add Calendar events directly to your personal Calendar.
vi. Having your own personal email account will allow you to take advantage of the new website’s features while fulfilling the website’s requirement for a unique email address for every Member.
vii. If you find a placeholder email such as firstname.lastname@example.org in the email address field, we did not have your email address in our records or we had one email address for your family.
viii. Please do not delete the “fake” placeholder email address if you do not have a personal email address to replace it. The system requires an email address in this field. Any email sent to your “fake” placeholder email address will bounce back to the sender as it cannot be delivered.
c. When you have completed this page, please Select Save.
5. Select Add Profile Photo. Now Select Choose File and pick a photo from your hard drive. When the photo has uploaded, Select Save.
