Switchgear Committee Association Management System

Association Management System (AMS) Introduction

The Switchgear Committee uses a web-based system which allows our subcommittees, working groups, task forces, and liaison associations to communicate more effectively via email messages. Fewer bounced emails will result because individual contact information is "self-maintained" and is stored in a single relational database used by all functions of the system. Activity leaders can print meeting rosters and maintain meeting attendance records. AMS also provides us an efficient and cost-effective on-line meeting registration system.

How to Enroll

There are essentially four levels of membership in the system:

  — Honorary Member
  — Committee Member
  — Active Participant (not a Committee Member, but an active contributor and meeting attendee)
  — Interested Individual (a "remote observer" and supporter of the Committee's scope)

Anyone can enroll in the AM System — even those who desire to passively monitor our work from a distance. Initially, a person is automatically enrolled as an Interested Individual. Once Committee membership or regular participation is validated, enrollment is upgraded to Committee Member or Active Participant. We welcome you to join and participate in the scope of our work!!

Modify Your Personal Profile

Once enrolled, it is important to maintain your email address and other contact information.

Committee membership status (Honorary Member, Committee Member, Active Participant, Interested Individual) can be determined by logging in and viewing your profile. If you suspect your membership status is incorrect, contact the Registrar.

Membership Directory

Want to find a buddy within the Committee database?

This function is only available to "full voting members" of the Switchgear Committee. If you are not a Committee Member, and try to access this function, you will receive a message denying access. Committee membership is encouraged! Eligibility requirements will be available online soon.

Note: All system accesses and functions are logged! Anyone performing undesired or malicious activities will be identified. Any use of the system for commercial purposes — for instance, numerous repetitive accesses to the Membership Directory to create marketing-type lists — may result in permanent suspension from system access.

Control Center

If you are a Committee activity leader (SC/WG/TF chair, vice-chair, or secretary), you can be given limited administrative rights to the system to populate and manage a portion of the system. You may also print meeting rosters and record attendance for a meeting.
