Online Registration Instructions*
If you have ever registered for our program, just enter your user information and click Login. If you are having trouble remembering your info, please don't create a new login. Instead, you can click the "Forgot Login or Password" link or call us at (630) 708-0469.
I. Go to www.yomechas.org, and click on the "Create New (Family) Login" link, which takes you to our registration system at CircleBridge.
A. New Family Registration:
1) At CircleBridge, you'll see a page asking "New Family?" and that’s where new folks can go ahead and create their own login and password. Pick something that's easy to remember (for example, JENNY RULES 2010), because you'll use these for registering for all the events.
2) Once your family is in the system, then they can input information for each member of the family that is joining the program, starting first with the parent (Dad). Fill in all of the parent’s information in that first profile page, and then save that page.
3) To add children to the system, click the button that says "Add," which will open up a new blank profile page to fill in for the child.
4) Once each member is in the system, then from the "XXXXX Family Registration Information" page, look at the column immediately to the right of the list of family members, which reads "Membership." Click on the JOIN button, which will take you to a screen asking you "know which tribe to join?" Search for the tribe you’ve chosen, and you can then click on the boxes for your family members to join that tribe.
II. If everybody’s in the system correctly and joined into the right tribe (or tribes), the system will then show you what fees to register for, and you'll see those in the column titled "Unregistered Events" on the right-hand side of the screen. There will generally be two fees, depending on the particular nation and the particular family:
A. 2011-2012 Federation Dues ($39/person as of June, 2011).
B. 2011-2012 Nation Dues for YYYYY Nation (where applicable). Nation Dues are additional charges that are collected by 5 of the 8 Nations which comprise the Yomechas Federation; they are used to supplement the funding of items or activities that are made available only to all tribes within those particular Nations. Nation funds have historically been used to pay for a wide variety of items: examples include batches of firewood for a Nation’s campout, a special event like a Nation Barbecue, and in some cases, incentive prizes for tribal members who especially distinguish themselves at recruiting new families into the Yomechas Federation.
i. As of June 1, 2011, Nations which collect Nation Dues are as follows:
Heartland ($20/family), Meadows ($20/family), Prairie ($12/family), Woodland ($30/family) and Streams ($22/family).
ii. As of the same date (June 1, 2011), the remaining 3 nations (Pioneer, Plains, and Trailblazers) do not collect Nation Dues.
III. Click on those fees and put them in your shopping cart.
IV. When you go into your shopping cart to pay, the system will prompt you to accept our online waivers (one regarding our alcohol policy, and one that is a liability waiver). You can accept the waivers by typing in your initials, and then you'll be all set to pay for registration with a credit card via PayPal.
V. You will then be able to register for all other events in the future from that list of “Unregistered Fees.”
VI. NO ONE CAN REGISTER FOR ANY INDIVIDUAL EVENTS WITHOUT HAVING FIRST PAID THEIR REGISTRATION FEES.
