|Question:||Why do I need to register?|
|Answer:||Some webpages are reserved for APSR members only. To see these pages, members must log in. To log in, each member must register a user-id and a password.|
|Question:||Do I need to register before I can log in?|
|Answer:||Yes, but only one time. After you have registered, you can log in as many times as you wish.|
|Question:||Do I need to register every time before I can log in?|
|Answer:||No. After you have registered your login details, you will not need to register again.|
|Question:||I don't know whether I am "APSR member". I am a member of another society affiliated to the APSR but I did not join the APSR directly. So am I a member?|
|Answer:||APSR members are those who pay their membership fee directly to the APSR, or through a group membership, or as an APSR member of an APSR en-bloc society.|
|Question:||How do I log in?|
|Answer:||You can log in here by using the user-id and password that you have registered.|
|Question:||What is my user-id and password?|
|Answer:||Your user-id is your email address, and your password is the one that you have chosen.|
|Question:||How do I register my user-id and password?|
|Answer:||By one of the following two methods:
- If you joined the APSR directly, or through a group membership, the APSR already has a record of your email address and that email address will be your user-id. Therefore you only need to register your own choice of password. To register your password, click the link at the top of the latest Bulletin email sent to your email address.
- If you have APSR membership through an APSR en-bloc society, you should register your email address and your own choice of password. To register these, click the link at the top of the latest Bulletin PDF sent to you by your society.
|Question:||When I click the link at the top of the Bulletin to register, I get an error message. What should I do?|
|Answer:||If an error message appears, it is most likely because you are not using the latest copy of the Bulletin. (The link expires when a new Bulletin is issued.)
If you are certain you are using the latest copy of the Bulletin and still get an error message, please take a screen print of the message and email it to the APSR Secretariat APSRinfo@theapsr.org for investigation.
|Question:||Should I include "Dr" or another title with my Family name or Given name(s)?|
|Answer:||No, only your name.|
|Question:||My thoractic society is not listed on the page. What should I do?|
|Answer:||Please write to the APSR Secretariat at APSRinfo@theapsr.org, and they will advise you.|
|Question:||I cannot find my membership number. What should I do?|
|Answer:||Type "unknown". When you find your membership number, you can change "unknown" to the correct number.|
|Question:||Why do I have to use an email address as a user-id? Why can't I use my membership number or my name?|
|Answer:||As with any other system, a user-id must be unique. Many members have joined through an APSR en-bloc society, and one society might use the same numbering system and range of numbers as another society. Therefore membership numbers are not always unique. Email addresses are always unique.
In addition, membership numbers can be easily forgotten or difficult to find. It's more likely you can remember your email address than your membership number.
Names are not used because they also are not unique. Email addresses are always unique.
|Question:||I prefer a simple password, such as "1234" that I can easily remember. Why does the APSR password have to be so complicated?|
|Answer:||Some pages of the website show confidential information, such as the private email addresses of assembly heads. Other pages contain lecture notes that members are able to see free of charge, and hopefully more privileged content will be available in the future.|
|Question:||Can I change my user-id and other details later?|
|Answer:||Yes. Click here.|
|Question:||Can I change my password later?|
|Answer:||Yes. Click here|
|Question:||If I change my user-id or password, do I need to register again?|
|Question:||Is my registration for access to members-only pages the same as my registration for the congress?|
- Register by clicking the link at the top of the latest Bulletin for members-only webpages. (See above)
- Register through the congress organiser's website for the congress. The congress organiser's website changes each year.

|Question:||I have another question. Who should I contact?|
