Associate members are other people/staff that are part of another business. The system is designed to allow for individuals to join and
either be the primary contact on the account with the ability to add and edit a business directory listing ... or for individuals to be associates of another member.
As an associate, you have the ability to have an account and profile image online; however, you do not have the ability to have a business directory listing. The
primary contact is responsible for maintaining the business directory listing for the business. As an associate you can take advantage of the social networking
features and connect with other members, join events and participate in committees. To assign yourself as an associate of a business ... first make sure you are
signed in and then go to that business directory listing. In the ACTION BLOCK, click on the "Become Associate" button ... ta da! You are now an associate of that
business. The primary contact has the ability to manage their associates and can remove or add associates at any time.
To connect with members, all you need to do it click on the little circle on the top right corner of their profile image.
Now you can network with other members online with the integrated social networking features. Contact, connect, fave, or even send them a
quick greeting ... all from the action block. You can see which members are online and even chat with them if they are!
