Scroll down on this page for some hints on logging in, modifying your profile, and registering for events.


New Members


Welcome to Tails of Joy! You will be added to the system as the treasurer processes your application. You should receive an email once you have been entered.


New members that join as part of evaluation are usually entered within the week. If you mailed your application this may take longer, depending on work flow.


Illegible email addresses are the most common reason that new members don't receive their notification. If you do not receive notification within a few weeks you may try the "Forgot My Username/Password" option or contact the treasurer about the status of your application.


Membership information is available at the Tails of Joy website.
