PPARES site vs. Membership Database
Posted by KC6USN on July 21 2011 03:33
We have people signed up here, at the PPARES site, who are not registered in the Membership Database.
I understand that can be confusing, so a small explantion is in order. The Membership Database is a standalone application that was designed specifically for ARES members to register their skills, equipment, training, availability, emergency notifications, etc. It is very good at what is was designed to be, however, it does not give the ability to broadcast news items, or store information. Therefore we have two sites, each with a specific function.
In order to be considered a full member on this site, you must be registered in the Membership Database. I encourage those of you registered here, to click on the link at the top left and register in the Membership Database if you have not already done so.
