  • Updated Membership Portal Handbook

    The latest update of the Membership Portal Handbook is available NOW! When EdTA/ITS converted our membership database system, we created a handbook to help our members navigate some of the most common functions in the database. While not a complete user’s guide, it is intended to provide clarity about updating profiles, adding eligible students to troupe rosters, inducting eligible students, chartering new troupes, and more. This handbook will be updated frequently as new functions are available so check back often!
