Membership Renewal Due October 1st for All ICA Members

Greetings ICA members! Membership renewal is upon us. If you have not renewed your membership for the incoming dues year, it is now due. As you may know all ICA memberships are active from October 1 - September 30 of each year, including anyone joining during the year. Please take a moment to log in to renew your membership. Here is the link: http://www.icahdq.org/cgi-shl/Dues.exe/Run:RENEW. There are several new benefits that have been added to the website that will improve new and existing members in connecting with each other.

New Special Interest Group
While renewing, remember to click on the Invoice number to see the detail and the list of available sections. You will notice that a brand new Interest Group has been added: Children, Adolescents, and the Media. You can join the new section simply by selecting it from the list and then continuing to checkout. Your bill will automatically recalculate, adding the new interest group.

Member Forums
There are 24 forums open to members of each Division and Interest Group and one Research Collaboration Forum open to all ICA members. They are all very easy to access. When you log in to your MyICA page on the web site (the Members Only homepage), you will now notice a drop-own list of forums that correspond to the sections to which you belong. Click on the desired forum and agree to the terms, and you're there! Click on the pink Folder icons to add new topics, or click on the "Return Letter" icon to reply to an existing post. Note that if you hold your mouse over an icon for a few moments, a small text box will appear indicating its function. There are additional instructions available on the FAQ page. The link to that page is on the upper-right side of the screen.

My Address Book
Coming soon, members will be able to create their own contact list from within the ICA member directory. Members will contact a colleague, request permission to add them to their address book. If allowed, they will be able to access that member's contact information easily without having to look them up each time in the future. The member receiving the request will also be able to reciprocate and add the requesting member's information to their own book.

Profile Update
Don't forget to look at your profile after you renew! We have added "Research Keywords," a "Research Interest" text box, and other features that should facilitate colleague interaction and collaboration. As always, contact me should you have any questions on the various new features or if you have suggestions on how to improve an existing feature.
