We are missing some email addresses and some have changed. If your email address isn’t working as your username, just give a call or shoot an email via the CONTACT US links at the website with your preferred email address. We will set up your account with the correct email address. I share an email address with other members of my team. You need a unique email or username to log in. If your primary email address is shared (and already associated with another user), we can provide you with the numeric username. Ideally, you should have a unique email address on file with MAA. Your email does not need to be shared with the public. In August, the MAA office rolled out a new website for its members. We’re excited about the possibilities that the new MassArbor.org site offers and welcome your feedback to improve the user experience. LOGGING IN You won’t need to log in to browse most pages of the site but to register for an event, place an order, update your contact information or post a job, you’ll need to log in! What’s my password? You need to create it. Enter your email address and click Forgot Username/Password. You’ll promptly receive an email with links to change the password. How do I update my information so consumers can find me? Follow the link to the Update Your Profile page and you will see the fields for contact information.
