Member Login Instructions

Members that have registered can use this link    Login for registered members

Members registering for the first time need to follow the steps below

The Society has begun using a new membership management system that will allow members to manage their details online. The system has been tested for several weeks and has been easy to use. The membership data has been transferred successfully and a pilot test saw data easily retrieved and updated.

All members have been sent an email containing registration instructions and personal login details.  Please contact the federal office if you require this information to be resent.

Currently you can login and change your details online and select if you wish to appear on the membership directory. Future updates will allow you to access the newsletter electronically, upload OPD diaries, register for events and pay subscription dues online. Feel welcome to explore the system but please understand that we will roll it out slowly one feature at a time; only the membership information is loaded at this point in time.

To access your member profile you need to register online as follows:
1. Open a web browser and go to
http://soilscienceaustraliamembers.memnet.com.au/Register.aspx
2. Click on the “Register” button on the top right hand corner
3. Enter the following information (taken from your existing profile) exactly as shown below into each of  the four cells. The code and other details are in the registration email sent to you. Take care not to add spaces or change capitals with the text you enter or you will be denied access..
Member Code         First name                Last name                      Postcode 

Don’t worry if you think one or two of the above pieces of information are not entirely correct –  enter the information “as is”, you can fix it once your login to your member profile. The best way to enter the information is to copy and paste the text making sure you do not have any additional space after the text.  

After you have registered you can login.  The username for the login will be your membership number preceded by a capital S.  User numbers have been expanded to 5 digits by adding zero in front of the number.  eg member AO 645 is now S00645   or  AS 1894  is now S01894  and AR 145 is now S00145.  You will be asked to change your password on your first login. Please record this information in a safe place.

After you log in you can check and edit your details by clicking either the “My Membership” or “My Details” button. Both icons take you to the Membership Self Service Portal where you can select “My Details”. One of the features that we hope will be invaluable is the Member Directory. Years ago the Society printed a list of members and circulated it to all financial members with the current Rules. Due to changes in privacy laws we have been reluctant to print and distribute lists of members to members however we believe the member directory is a way to safely provide these details. Currently the default is set as opt out. If you would like to be displayed in the member directory please go to My Details and select No in the Opt Out.
