Frequently Asked Questions

Q:   How do I limit which NBA members are able to send me "member to member messages"?
A:   While logged in, members can go to the Members Only tab.  At the bottom of the Members Only page is place where member messages can be blocked.

Q:    How can I tell if a message I send through the Mass Messaging system has been delivered?
A:     Sending Member Messages

    • Click on the "Send Message" under the Members Only tab
    • Include your Subject, Message, and check "All Members" or on the specific members you would like to contact.
    • Press the red "Send Message" button at the bottom of the page to send the message.  DO NOT CLICK MORE THAN ONCE - BE PATIENT.  Wait until you see a note "Messages sent to xxx people" after the messages have been sent and delivered; this might take a few minutes if you message all the members (they might not be delivered if you leave the messaging page too soon).  As well, you can view your sent messages when you click on "Sent" on your messaging page.
