      Hi, Carolyn,

      This question has a short answer, and a longer one... First, if you go online today, when you click on your name in the upper right hand corner, you should come to your profile.  Then you click on "Edit Profile" and you'll be able to change the values.  You can update your Work E-Mail on that page, or click the "Account" link and you can change your log in e-mail.

      Unfortunately, the better answer is that you want to update your e-mail in the AAA member database.  In about 2 weeks (I hope!) there will be a new log in process for the AAACommons - and all of the data from the AAA member system will automatically be passed here.  This feature is called Single Sign On and makes sure that there is one master record for you, and you'll only have to update your information once.... So, if you can hold on for a couple of weeks, I'll post instructions to update with the new process. 

      Sorry that functionality isn't ready quite yet!

      Thank you Julie.  I will try the short answer first.  One other comment,  I am a member of the APGL group but it does not appear in my window along with all the other groups I belong to.  I joined mid-year. While I remain on Arkansas' faculty until June 30, 3009  I have made a transition that is both scary and exhilarating.

      I was going to cut and paste (from  Outlook)--my new contaact information but this function does not seem to be working.  Is there another way to cut and paste?  I have lots of questions but, I really see the potrential of the AAA commons for researcers, teachers and everyone.   Thank you very much for all the work you and others have done on our behalf.

      Best,

      Carolyn
