ONLINE MEMBERSHIP PROCESS
We Had A New Member Sign Up Online - Now What?
Online Membership Basics
1) Online members are not degree'd members
2) Online members are not yet part of any council
Step One: Have them take a degree
A) Councils hold a degree - live or virtual - using a team or the video
The video on Officers Online is downloadable to a laptop so you don't need an internet connection to host the degree but it can be streamed as well.
B) Use the "On Demand Degree" see flyer on the right
invite has a hotlink straight to the online degree
this flyer can be emailed to online members wanting to join a council or emailed to prospects as part of a church drive or even emailed to 1st degree member wanting to advance to the 3rd degree
The State Membership Director and the State Deputy get notified when they have logged in and completed the degree - the FS gets emailed as well.
Step Two: File a Form 100
A) Submit the paper form 100
This can be scanned and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
personally - I just take a high quality picture with my phone and email straight from my phone
If the FS snail mails in the form 100 - It could take weeks to get processed due to the Covid procedures currently in place at Supreme - please try to avoid this
B) Use the new "electronic form 100"
This is new and only the FS as access to this tab in Officers Online
Looks like this:
When the FS clicks the add button - they will see this form:
They complete the form and the FS will see an update with the membership number in a few days on their roster.
As we move to a more virtual/electronic world, FSs may need help adapting and understanding the new methods. As leaders, our job is to educate and elevate those in our charge.
