There have been a few changes made on our HSA Website at www.houstonsongwriters.net.
HSA Members are in the process of uploading their songs in the January Song of the Month Contest and Voting will be opening next week. We want to make sure you will be able to access the website to listen to the songs and vote in the Song of the Month Contests.
Anyone can access all areas listed on the website except the Song of the Month and Members Areas.
To access the Song of the Month Area you must be signed up on the site as a “Registered Member” to be able to listen to all of the songs that are uploaded. If you previously signed up before these changes were made and are unable to access this area with your current Log In information, you will have to Sign Up again. To “Sign Up”, click the “Log In” feature at the top upper right side of the page then click on the “Sign Up” area. Once you “Sign Up”, please use the “Log In With Email” feature using your email address and password in the future.
When you “Sign Up”, the site will recognize you as either a “Registered User” or as a “Paid Member”. Registered Users who have not paid dues will only be able to listen to the songs listed in the Song of the Month Area. They will not have access to the Members Area.
Once you have paid the dues, Admin will add you to the “Paid Members” group. This will take about a day for Admin to process. Only “Paid Members” who are current in their Annual Membership Dues will have full access to the Song of the Month Area, Members Areas, Members Forum and be able to bring in one song for critiquing at any of the (10) monthly meetings, upload it to the website for entry into the Song of the Month Contest, make edits if needed, and vote in the monthly and year-end contests.
IMPORTANT – If you paid membership dues in 2019, you will be currently listed as a Paid Member when you Sign Up. This will take about a day for Admin to process. However, don’t forget to renew your 2020 Membership Dues ($35) as soon as possible. Membership dues can be paid through our PayPal Account on the website at www.houstonsongwriters.net. Click on the “Become A Member” tab for instructions and membership fees. Current membership dues are: New members pay $40 during the first year of registration which is in effect through December 31 of that year only and renewing memberships of $35 are due in January of each year thereafter. You can also bring your dues to one of the meetings, cash or check only.
Feel free to explore the new website. If you need more information regarding these changes, click on the “More” Area and then click on “Help”. Please let us know if you find any errors or would like to see something changed. If you have any problems signing up, or logging in, please send us a message at firstname.lastname@example.org.
