Using Your Directory

  • Clicking on the underlined name of a member brings up a screen that duplicates information in previous printed membership directories.
  • You may leave the first name or last name field blank to search on a name; however, if you want to further narrow your search by using a wildcard, use % instead of an *. For example, you might type in “John” as a first name and “Sm%” as the last name to get a list of all the John Sm…s in the directory.
