The below information is meant to give you a brief overview of the basics of how to navigate the EnglishUSA Website and better utilize the new benefits and functions available to members. You are encouraged to go beyond the basic sections and explore the website in more detail at your own pace. For any questions or concerns regarding the website, please contact the EnglishUSA office (info@englishusa.org).

Logging In

To log in to your profile*, first visit www.englishusa.org and select the sign-in section in the top right-hand corner of the homepage or in the Member Sign In box approximately halfway down the homepage.

Log in to your profile using you username and password. If you do not know your username and password, you can reset it by selecting Click Here to Reset Your Password or you can contact the EnglishUSA office for assistance.

*NOTE:  Each program has a profile, which must be managed by the main program contact.  In addition, each individual (up to 4 at each site) will have an individual profile that they can populate to better connect with other EnglishUSA members and member programs.  

 

You've Logged In, Now What?

Once you have logged in to your individual profile there are several areas which may be of interest to you as a member. The next section will cover a few of the critical areas for you to know.

Editing Your Bio

Once you have logged in to your profile, click Manage Profile in the right-hand side of the webpage.

By selecting Edit Bio, you can update your username, password, email address, physical address, phone numbers, employer information and much more. Be sure to periodically check to ensure that your information is current so that you don't miss out on the important information from EnglishUSA!

Invoicing, Payments, & History

If you scroll down below the Edit Bio section, the next section you will see is the Invoicing, Payments & History section. For individuals, this is where you will access and pay any event invoices.

NOTE: An invoice will not be created until you update the information in your profile.  We do require that member programs provide updated information about their program, including accreditation information, at the time of renewal. 

For those who manage the program profiles, utilize this section to access and pay any open membership invoices. This section is also where you can find information on your membership status and expiration date.

Email notification for membership renewal will be sent to the main program contact 60 days and 30 days prior to the year of the current EnglishUSA Membership Year (June 30, 2017). Annual dues are $695 per program/location for 2017-18. There are two ways to submit payment:

  • Choose Pay Dues Online to pay dues by credit card.
  • Mail the emailed invoice with a check payable to:

AAIEP-EnglishUSA

1827 Powers Ferry Rd.

Building 14, Suite 100

Atlanta, GA 30339

Multi-site programs are often billed directly through their corporate office. If you have questions, please email info@englishusa.org.

Forums

EnglishUSA has several different forums with which you can engage on the website and/or subscribe to for email inbox notifications.  We are initially starting with one general and six interest area forums based on feedback from our members.

  • Open Member Forum:  All EnglishUSA members are highly encouraged to subscribe to this forum as it will eventually replace the listserv. Associates are welcome to post once/monthly on the open forum. 

We highly encourage all EnglishUSA members to subscribe at minimum to the "Open Member Forum" so that you will receive up-to-date information from the membership in your inbox.  Eventually, the "Open Member Forum" will replace the current listserv in one of the final steps of our member consolidation.

  • Curriculum & Assessment: This forum provides a community to help faculty, staff, and administrators to share insights and questions in efforts to develop best practices with IEP curricula and assessment.
  • International Enrollment Management: This forum addresses the needs of IEP personnel who work with admissions, enrollment management, sponsored program administration, and student services as well as those who work closely with their institutions or partnering institutions.
  • Recruitment & Marketing: This forum addresses the needs of IEP personnel who are directly responsible for student recruitment and marketing.  Resources from EnglishUSA Associates will be ‘stored’ in this group.
  • Standards & Accreditation: This forum provides a community for IEP personnel to discuss issues with standards and accreditation specifically for IEPs.
  • Advocacy: This forum provides a community for EnglishUSA  members interested in issues that address international education as a whole but also specifically those related to IEPs.
  • Products & Services: This forum is for everyone interested in keeping up-to-date with the products, services, and upcoming events offered by EnglishUSA Associate members.  Associates are welcome to post at any time on this forum.

At any time when you're logged in on the website, you can view the posted messages.  If you prefer to receive messages in your email inbox, you can subscribe to the forums and adapt the settings to your preference ("Instant Updates" or "Digest").

  2. Go to the Forum you'd like to join (e.g. Open Member Forum)
  3. Select your choice from the Forum Actions (Subscribe to Instant Updates will send you an email every time someone posts a new question or response whereas Subscribe to Digest will email you a summary of the Forum posts/responses.  You can have different settings for different Forums.
  4. My Subscriptions and Settings brings you to a summary of your preferences.
  5. You must first subscribe to a Forum before you are able to set up your Preferences.  Once you've subscribed, just click on My Subscriptions & Settings from the Forum Actions menu, or to Forum Settings in Manage Profile.  Once you are in your Forum Settings, you can change your options for Digests or Instant Updates.  You can also create a unique signature for your postings within Forum.  

Once again, we encourage all EnglishUSA members to subscribe at minimum to the "Open Member Forum" so that you will receive up-to-date information from the membership in your inbox.  Eventually, the "Open Member Forum" will replace the current listserv in one of the final steps of our member consolidation.
