I have a family membership but we only have one website username and password. Can I get additional website logins for the other family members?

Yes!  The processing of a family membership results in the creation of a username/password for the primary family member.  However, a family membership enables additional family members to obtain their own website accounts.  The other family member should follow these steps to obtain the additional account:

  1. Get the username and member number from the primary family member account.
  2. Do NOT log in.  (the assumption is you do not yet have a username password so you cannot log in).
  3. On the right-hand side of the home page - see the Title: 
    Family Member - Get Your Own Username!
  4. Click on the link "fill out this form"

  5. Complete the form.  Required fields are indicated with a red asterisk *.  See the specific instructions on the right side of the form for any item.

  6. The primary family member username and member number must be entered to validate the request.

  7. Read and accept the Release of Liability and Assumption of Risk.
  8. Click Process Membership Application.

You will receive an e-mail confirming your request.  The WAB membership coordinator will also receive a notification e-mail and will review your request.  The membership coordinator may elect to confirm your request with the primary family member and then will approve and activate your account.  This process may take a day or two.
