Thanks to all of our members for your patience in allowing me amnesty from the weekly E-Flash. This period allowed me time to get our new website launched and database organized. Below is an explanation of how to access the members only portion of the website and the steps to the login process. I would like to stress that this is new to all of us and appreciate your patience as we work through this together.
Who has access to the website?
Everybody! Visit www.FAPSC.org and take a look around. Lots of new features have been added per your requests. Check out the school directory. Any student or visitor to our website can search a FAPSC member school by clicking on the school member directory and selecting to search by school name, city, state, zip and county. Associate members can be searched not only by company name but also by their products and services. Enhancements to both of these searches are being made to include descriptions for each associate member information and a list of programs offered by each campus.
Access to the FAPSC members only portion of the website has been granted to all school and associate member primary contacts. Emails were sent out on (insert date) to those persons. If you did not receive an email and you are the company's main point of contact please email Wanda@FAPSC.org or call the FAPSC office directly at (850) 577-3139 and ask to speak to me.
