Help page for online membership directory at https://directory.vhpa.org  

Member numbers are comprised of a letter followed by a five place number.  Be sure to use all five digits filling in the space after the letter with zeros instead of the letter O to complete five positions.  You can find your member number on your membership card or on the mailing label of the magazine or call HQ on 800-505-VHPA (8472).

Passwords are case sensitive.

Some computer configurations using Internet Explorer (IE) have a security setting that prevents logging on to the membership directory.  Unfortunately we have not yet developed a solution to this problem; however, we have a work around to fix it.  Please download the free browser, FireFox from http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/ie.html  This browser can co-exist with Internet Explorer on your computer without interfering with IE's operation.  Then use FireFox to access the directory.

We are sorry for this inconvenience.

If you need more help, please contact the webmaster, Gary Roush.

Just follow the steps below:

VHPA_ord_1A.png

 

 

This screen is called the VHPA Home Page.

By way of example, let’s assume you want to see what the VHPA knows about you and your tour(s) in Southeast Asia.  You will do this by looking at the online Membership Directory.

Step 2          On the Home page, look beneath the VHPA logo.  See the line of five items ending with Member Login?

VHPA_ODA_3.png

Simply left mouse click on the VHPA_ord_2.png words

You will know you are successful when you see something like the following:

VHPA_ODA_1A.png

While you have not previously joined the VHPA, because you received this special mailing ~ you are indeed in this Membership Directory.

So please press on!

Step 3          Look on the left side under the VHPA logo for the grey block titled Member Login marked by the red arrow in the illustration above.  Click on the grey block.  You should see something like the following:

VHPA_ODA_2A.png

You will start entering data in the empty white box marked with the red arrow.

Step 4          Enter your member number starting with the letter Z (as in Zulu) in the empty white box shown in the illustration above.  Please find your number on the invitation letter you received in this mailing.  After the Z there are five (5) digits.  Please enter 0’s (versus O’s as in Oscar) until you have all five digits (example: Z01206).  Additionally select the circle to the left of “Use/Create a password” by simply left mouse clicking on the circle.  You will know you are finished when your screen looks something like the following:

VHPA_ODA_Login_5A.png

When your screen has your number and the circle filled in, then click the Login button.

Step 5          You will know you are successful when you see something like the following:

VHPA_ODA_Login_6A.png

When your screen has your City and State correctly filled in from the mailing label, then click the CONTINUE button.

Step 6          You will know you are successful when you see something like the following:

VHPA_ODA_Login_7A.png

Please note:

1.    Your member number appears at the top of the display.

2.    You need to provide or verify your email address.

When all these are complete, click the CONTINUE button.

 

Step 7          You will know you are successful when you see something like the following:

Congratulations!!!

 

You are now logged into the
Online Membership Directory!

By way of example, let’s assume you want to update your information to include the year(s) and unit(s) you served with in Southeast Asia.  You will do this by using tools built into the Online Directory Application (also known as ODA).  The lower portion of the left most co lumn in the display on your screen looks something like the following:

VHPA_ODA_9A.png

Simply left mouse click on the Update My Information button (under Other Services) and follow the instructions presented by the application.

 

Perhaps a Tip is appropriate here!

If you ever plan to become a Life Member of the VHPA, we must have your Date of Birth on file.

By way of example, let’s assume you want to join the VHPA.  After making certain your information is correct as outlined above, you will left mouse click on the Join the VHPA button.  You will know you have successfully started the application when you see something like the following:

VHPA_ODA_9C.png

 

Please note the operative words are
Before joining the VHPA.
Sorry we are being a little “Type A” here!

Eventually you will pass through several screens and then arrive at the payment screen.  This application uses PayPal to process credit card transactions.  It is important to note that there is no requirement for you to have a PayPal account.  NONE!  A valid credit card is just fine.

In closing, it is worth stating that you can use the Online Directory Application to join the VHPA.  Then HQ will issue you a new Member Number that will replace your current Z number.  With that new Member Number, you will be able to register online to attend the Reunion.

Questions, please call HQ at 800-505-8472 Monday through Friday between 9:30am and 3:00pm CST.
