But it is our APA…

Today I received a sweet, personalized, mail-merged note from the APA:

Dear Anne:

I write to remind you that June 30 is the deadline for receipt of nominations for APA committees and for receipt of APA Grant proposals.  The nominating process is available in the “Members Only” section of the APA website as is information about the requirements for grant proposals.

There are some nice features of the note. First, the online membership registration does not start until after June 30, and it takes too long for mail-in membership payment to be processed for you to get ‘member’ status before The 30th So don’t even bother to read further to the part where they say they need nominations and volunteers if you are not up to date.

But I should be up to date. And I could access quite a bit of the members only stuff. I couldn’t see anything about nominations, but I looked eagerly toward reading about available grants. And to I was surprised to see the following when I did:

You do not have permission to view this content.

Ahhh, it’s like slipping into those old faimiliar shoes that never did fit.

  1. I find it highly improbable that there could be a problem with the APA’s website.

  2. I thought this one was a bit special, starting with the fact, which I omitted, that there was no link to the APA website in the initial letter. And then it was only specialist insider knowledge – due to my having read some other part of the site a few days ago – that revealed how cleverly they had coordinated the last day for using the sight with the first day of paying dues on line.

    There has to be some thought here!

  3. Anne,

    I got the error message too. So I clicked on something — news and announcements — then tried clicking on the members only link again, and this time it went through. So try again and see if that works for you.
