As you are probably aware, NGFA has enhanced its website ngfa.org. Some of the changes may be obvious, but others may not be. So, we have compiled a few tips to let you know more about what’s available, and to help you navigate the site more efficiently.
One of the most recent changes has been the addition of the online directory – available to members only. It replaces the printed version that formerly was published every two years. The new version is updated every hour, and can be reached under the Membership tab from ngfa.org, or directly by going to ngfa.org/directory.
In addition, we know time is valuable, even the few seconds it takes to go to a website and find exactly what you are looking for. That is why we created easy-to-remember URLs that take you directly to what you need. For example:
- NGFA Overview: org/about
- Foundation: org/foundation
- List of Members: org/members
- Committees: org/committees
- Committee Apprentice Program: org/cap
- NextGen: org/nextgen
Trade Rules and Arbitration
- List of events: org/events
- Trade Rules Seminar: org/rulesseminar
- Ag Transportation Summit: org/agtrans
- Elevator Design Conference: org/EDC
- Joint Feed and Pet Food Conference: org/feedandpetfood
- Country Elevator Conference: org/cec
- Annual Convention: org/annualconvention
- Feed Quality Assurance Training: org/FQAtraining
Please note, NGFA training courses are hosted by an external source. We are in the process of streamlining the login process, but currently it requires a separate account, which can be accessed by going to ngfa.org/classlogin.
Register for full Access
Most elements of the NGFA website are accessible without logging in. However, as noted above, two key member benefits are protected: the directory and the newsletter.
If you do not have an account, you can create one going directly to the Register page. You also will find a link to log into the site in the upper right corner of ngfa.org, and at the bottom of the page, you will find links to:
- Log in to an existing account,
- Register for a new account, or
- Reset an existing account if you’ve lost your password.
Please note, once you create an account, you will be informed that NGFA must manually approve the account. This extra step is to ensure only members receive benefits. If you need immediate access to the website, contact Director of Communications Heather McElrath at firstname.lastname@example.org or (202) 289-0873.
In addition to improvements on the website, we are working to improve our email distribution. You will find a link to update your email preferences on the NGFA Newsletter page – look for the blue button “Manage Your Subscriptions.” Once you click on the link, you will be taken to a page that will allow you to select from the following focused lists for articles and issues:
- Conferences and Events
- Hill Updates
- Issue Advisories
- Member Advisories
- Next Gen
- Risk Management
- Safety, Health & Environment
- Training and Education
We will not implement these changes immediately, but your input is highly valuable so that we can streamline emails in the near future.
At the heart of our communications efforts is our intent to serve you better. To achieve that, we always welcome hearing from you – what’s working and what’s not. If you have comments, questions, concerns or need help, contact Director of Communications Heather McElrath at email@example.com or (202) 289-0873.
