Site Help - Member Registration

MISA membership starts with an organization registering itself. Once an organization is registered and has paid it membership dues to the appropriate chapter, the organization can send invitations to individuals to register an individual account. The primary contact who signs up the organization is responsible for maintaining the account information and for payment of the membership dues.

Please keep in mind the difference between your organization and Individual member accounts.

  • The organization account has a public profile, which can be viewed by non-members and members. You still control what information is seen by the public.
  • The organization account is responsible for membership dues and payment. You can use the same e-mail address as your individual account to ensure that you receive notifications and correspondence for your organization.
  • The organization account can invite others at their organization to create individual accounts, which will be associated with the organization. The Individual account e-mail address must use the same domain suffix as your organization account’s e-mail address.

Register Your Organization

Please follow the information on the How To Join page for your organization to become a member of MISA.

Complete your Organization Account

The first thing to be done after your organization has paid its dues and become a member is to create the organization’s profile. Below are the key steps.

  1. Go to http://www.misa-asim.ca/
  2. In the Sign In area, log in using your Username and Password that you specified when signing up. If you have forgotten your password, please use the "Forgot your password?" link.
  3. Once logged in, navigate to the Your Profile section, and click on Manage Profile.
  4. In this section your can change:
    1. Information & Settings -- Information you can customize, along with settings to determine who can see information. Also the area to manage your sub-accounts (individuals).
    2. Content & Features -- Blogs, pages, photo galleries and other features for your organization.
    3. Community -- Message centre and group navigation.
    4. Networking & Careers -- Resume/cv and career postings for your organization.
    5. Account History -- Membership details.
  5. Using the "Edit Bio" area, please update your account and professional information with what you feel comfortable providing. You will notice green padlocks beside the fields. If you click on them, you can set that piece of information to be visible to the public, or to members only, or you can mark them as private.
  6. Once everything is filled out please click on Save Changes.

    Note: Profile information changes can take up to eight hours to be viewed when doing searches, as the site index is regenerated every eight hours.

  7. Once you have your organization set up, you can start inviting Individuals of the organization.

Profile Home vs Public Profile

When you are in Your Profile, you will notice the Profile Home and the Public Profile links. At first glance when you click on these, they may appear to have identical information. The Public Profile link actually shows you what the public will see if they do a member search and your organization appears. The Profile Home link shows you all details, which you have entered.

Invite and Manage An Individual Account

Individuals must be invited by an organization to register. The individual is also required to use the same e-mail domain suffix as the organization account e-mail address. If there are variances for any reason, please contact us at info@misa.on.ca.
