(Q): Why is there an option to register and what would I be registering?
(A): The registration option is provided so that dues-paying members who would like to gain access to the Member Zone can be setup to receive access permissions to the zone. The fact that you are a current dues-paying member does not give automatic access to the Member Zone. If you wish to have that access granted you can register your membership on the website.
During the registration process you will be asked to provide information such as name, email address, membership number, the username you want to use (Make sure you remember your username; it cannot be changed after your members-only account becomes active), password you want to assign to your account, etc. Once the registration has been submitted by you it is in PENDING Status; the BFAA Registrar will then verify your membership for things such as:
* Account Active (not expired),
* valid membership number,
* city/state, just to name a few.
Once the status of an account is verified, the registered account is activated by the BFAA Registrar and an e-mail is sent by the registration system letting the member know that they can now login to the MemberZone.
If your membership status cannot be verified we will also send an email informing you that we could not verify your membership status. In that email we ask that you provide us with information by filling out a easy online form that will help us verify your membership status.
