And Welcome to Our Website!
The menu to your left will expand to show additional options in certain categories. Our Members Area has two sections.
- The Forms page has reporting forms for Dues, Outreach and Reimbursement and Income, as well as the Release Form for publishing personal information on the website and in the newsletter.
- The Documents page contains links to documents that contain sensitive contact information, such as the Chapter Officers List. Our Newsletters can be found on this page. The page uses a security challenge to prevent web reading programs from harvesting e-mail addresses and other contact information.
We welcome your suggestions on how to improve these pages!
EGA Policies require a signed release form for personal and copyrighted information posted on the website.
