Logged-in Account Administrators can add team members through the Account tab at the top of the page. The Account page left-side menu includes a Team link, where you will be able to add to your team.
Municipal Members have unlimited team members able to create a User Account under their municipality.
Organizational memberships come with an initial set number of seats within their membership team. The number of seats organizations are allotted align with their membership tier. To purchase additional seats, select the total desired number of User Accounts you would like at time of registration. Or, you can upgrade your subscription at a later date. Additional seats are $40.00 CAD each.
Individual memberships come with one seat in the Members Portal.
Account Administrators will receive two emails upon approval of payment OR approval of delayed payment.*
The first arrives after completing your payment information and contains a username and password — keep this handy.
The other will arrive when payment is received or when the office approves a retuning member’s delayed payment. This email includes your record of purchase and a link leading to a page that will ask you to enter your membership information. You can chose to have your Municipal, Band Council, Organization, or Individual culture-related work profile shared on the Current Members page of the website.
*available only to those who were members in good standing in 2020. See How Can I Pay?

Our new website comes with some improvements to membership benefits in 2021 including a Members Portal Discussion Board. The ListServ is no longer in operation.
To access the Discussion Board, you must:
Be an individual member or belong to a member municipality or organization with a membership in good standing.
Have a User Login. If you belong to a member municipality or organization, ask your Account Administrator to add you to the membership team through their Account Management in order to set up your User Login.
We are working hard to make sure there is a valuable and accessible event in October 2021! More information will be announced in spring 2021.
Regional Calls will be a great opportunity to gather virtually in February 2021. Members can register for free. Non-members are welcome also, and registration fees can be applied toward cost of membership should you decide to join CCNC within 30 days of your Regional Call.
In Municipal and Organizational memberships, multiple colleagues from within the municipality or organization can create a User Profile, but they will operate as part of the larger team.
When inviting team members to join, Account Administrators will mark the role as “Manager” if they would like a team member to have administrative privileges. If not, they will select the “Member” role.
Site Visitors are non-members who make purchases on the CCNC site from the Classifieds, Library, or other non-member areas. They receive log-in information, but will not have access to the User Portal or any membership privileges.
