‘Members Only’ Password Updated

Every new membership year we change the password for all of the password protected pages on the Chapter website. The new password has been applied as of January 14th. You must use the new password from that date forward.

The new password was shared at the January 14th Chapter gathering. If you were not able to attend and have already paid your 2023 dues you may contact any of the Chapter officers to get the new password.

What’s Up With Facebook?

There has been some interest expressed in using Facebook with the Chapter. We’ve had several false starts with this in the past, so recently we’ve “wipe the slate clean” in terms of the Chapter’s use of Facebook. This was necessary to improve maintenance and control of Facebook postings.

We’ve now created a new Facebook “group” named Dhdhog Omaha. This group is owned by the dhdhog4411@gmail.com userid. Note that the dhdhog4411@gmail.com userid is not intended to act as a typical Facebook account. We won’t accept any friend requests against that ID. Chapter members will be allowed to join and post to the new group.

Email invitations have been sent to all known Chapter members’ email addresses. If you are aware of someone who hasn’t received an email invitation simply direct them to the Facebook group and they will be able to request to be added.

If you’re not a Facebook user and you received an email invitation you may simply disregard the invitation.
