'Top of the Lake’ edited by Alexandre de Franceschi ASE & Scott Gray ASE
Greetings Editing Colleagues,
We have something very exciting to tell you... Our new website is finally launched !
A tremendous amount of effort has gone into building you a site that is not only easy to use, but very functional and a great resource for ASE Members.
No doubt you've noticed our new look eNews too!
Here is how to log in first time ...
2. Enter your personal email address into the 'Membership Login'.
(use the email address that is registered with the ASE ... this is very important as your membership details are linked).
3. Leave the Password field blank. Press 'forgot password'. You'll be emailed a temporary password.
4. Retrieve the email and enter the temporary password into 'Password' field.
5. Click 'Log Me In'.
When the page refreshes, you'll notice your name in the top right hand corner of the page.
If you have troubles logging in, you're probably not using the email address registered on the ASE database.
If this is the case, email ASE Administrator Margaret Slarke and she'll sort things out.
Once you have successfully logged in, wander around. There are many things to check out.
There is one function that I'd specifically like to bring to your attention:
The Members Directory Search.
This is a service we will be publicising to the Industry next month, offering a free Search For An Editor function.
Who shows up in this search depends directly on what you enter in your personal profile.
Under 'membership' pull down menu is 'my membership'. Go ahead and update your professional details.
This is your personal page to display a bio, credits, showreel and your personal website link.
You can change your password here too.
This information will show on your personal page of the 'Members Directory' search - EXCEPT for personal details like home address, email address and phone number (these are kept strictly private).
What you choose in 'Category' and 'Role' is how you will be displayed in searches made by those using the 'Members Directory'.
You can choose multiple to cover all aspects of your experience.
REMEMBER TO HIT 'Save all changes' at the bottom of the page.
If you're an Accredited Member, please leave the ASE at the end of your surname. This assists in the Directory searching for Accredited Members.
To see how your listing appears to the public in the 'Members Directory', go to 'Membership' in the main pull-down.
Select 'Members Directory' and perform a search that you know will bring you up. For example, your first name or one of the ticked 'Category' or 'Role' fields.
One other thing to let you know - If you had a credit card authority on file, it is no longer valid. This new system offers Paypal for Membership renewals as well as credit card and cheque.
Again, please contact Margaret if you have any questions regarding your ASE Membership.
We hope you enjoy this wonderful ASE asset!
Remember, it really is a matter of "what can you do for your Guild?".
Please let us know what you'd like to contribute or make available to share.
Let's find great comfort in supporting each other.
Jason Ballantine ASE
