Q: How do I add new employees to the company's membership?
A: To add new employees to your company's existing membership with NUCA, click on "My Associates" in the member portal menu.
*Note: Please check the "Review/Modify a Contact" dropdown menu on this page to ensure the associate has not already been added.
Click on "Add an Affiliate" or "Add a Rep" to add an associate to your company account.

There are two types of employees you can add. Each has different levels of permission within the member portal:
Affiliate: Can add, manage, and delete employee's profiles within the company when logged in.
Representative: Can only manage their own profile, and cannot see other's information when logged in
Note: For each Affilate or Rep that you add to your company account you will be creating a username and password for each one. This username and password that you set for each would need to be provided to each affliate or rep so that they can access their account. An alternative option would be to guide them to the [password reset page here-insert link here] so that they can enter their email address for their new account you setup and submit in order to recieve an email with their username and a temporary password.
All employee types are able to register for events, training, and access all information for members only.

A: If you are the Primary or Affiliate contact for the Organization, you can manage employee profiles under "My Associates" in the member portal menu.
