Understanding Your Account

The NCHE website is both a online store, and a way to interact with your NCHE membership information.

NCHE MEMBERSHIP

Supporter Identification

Your Supporter Identification Number and Card are available to you to print from the ID Card tab of your user account.

Your account is also your way to access your NCHE Membership History Dashboard. This dashboard lets you see your NCHE membership history, donations, event registrations and subscriptions to print and email lists.

The Household: Understanding Your NCHE Information

NCHE memberships are oriented around a household. Individuals are members of a household. A person and his or her spouse are members in a household. One person is considered the primary person associated with the household. Membership history, donations, event registrations are tied to households. Email subscriptions, on the other hand, are tied to individual members of a household. The Household/Individual model allows couples to both log into the site and see the donations and registration to NCHE, but each also be on different email lists, according to their interests.

When you visit the NCHE membership dashboard, the system shows your individual information; you are seeing your Individual Dashboard. You can tell it is your individual dashboard because it lists both your first and last name. In contrast, Household accounts are designated by just a last name. If you are looking for your NCHE membership history, event registrations or print subscription, be sure the dashboard is showing your Household. To switch and see your Household information, scroll to the bottom of your individual Dashboard to the category Membership. There you will see a link to your Households's Dashboard. Once you are on your Household Dashboard, you will see your NCHE membership history.

 

 

WEBSITE STORE

When you log into nche.com and go to "Your Account", you are see information about your WEBSITE STORE account.  

Files: Digital Downloads

Your Website Account enables you to log into our store and download digital files you've purchases, and see your download history.

To access your Digital Files, click on the "Files" tab. There you will find a list of every digital file you have purchased, including your download history for each file.

Downloading and Playing the MP3 Files

To download the MP3 file, right click on the download link. It will open a dialog window, and there will be several choices. Look for “save target as” or “save link as” or something similar.

When you click on the save as command, another window will open where you can designate where to save the file.

We sugguest creating a folder to store recordings together.  If you have a PC you will probably want to create a folder in the “My Music” folder (found in the “My Documents” folder) or “Music Library.”   We suggest labelling the folder related to the event the recordings, for example: “NCHE Conference 2013.” 

Once the file is downloaded to your computer, you can double-click the file to play it. The program your computer has associated with .mp3 files will open the file. If your computer does not have a program associated with .mp3 files, you will be asked to identify which program you would like to open the files.  

To download any of the talks to an MP3 player follow the instructions provided with your MP3 player.

There are some common media file organizers on computer system.  You may wish to add NCHE recordings to these media file organizers.

Add MP3s to iTunes Library

Open iTunes and click on “music” under “LIBRARY” on the left of the window. The main part of the window will now show any music or talks you have in your library. If you have never used iTunes before, the main window will be empty. Now add the MP3 talks to your iTunes library by dragging them from your newly created folder into iTunes, depositing them into the main part of the iTunes window. All the information about them will now be displayed within iTunes including the talk titles, the speakers’ names, etc.. You can sort the talks within iTunes by clicking on any of the headings at the top of the list. You can also use iTunes to burn a CD that can be played on any CD player.

Add MP3s to Windows Media Player Library

Start Windows Media Player. Click the Library tab. Your current music library shows up. Click the Add to Library menu, select the folders you want to monitor, and click the OK button. Media Player will then monitor all your personal folders including the folder you created to store the conference MP3 files.
