ANNOUCEMENT - Payment Method Change

Currently, payments for Monthly Meetings and other Chapter events can be made by online payment through PayPal or by check.

**PLEASE NOTE - As announced at the March 2018 meeting, the April meeting will be the LAST event in which Check payment will be accepted.**

Beginning with the May 2018 meeting, all payments must be made electronically through the WMAPA website during the registration process.  It is quick and EASY to make the payment online and you do NOT need to have a Paypal account or log into any websites.

Please see the below Instrucion guide that shows you the quick 4 steps to make this transition.  If you have questions or issues, please contact Christine at cnygaard@ufpi.com

Having trouble receive meeting notifications and other emails from us?

If you are having trouble receiving mail from your organization, a firewall or spam filtering service is likely the cause of the issue. However, you can white list several domains and IP addresses to ensure safe delivery. Depending on your e-mail service, you may be able to do this yourself, or you may need the assistance of your IT administrator. We recommend white listing the following:

  • starchapteremailhost2.com 67.43.2.30
  • hostemail1.starchapterhost.com 209.59.162.85
  • •hostmailbox1.starchapterhost.com 67.43.7.204
  • •hostapp1.starchapterhost.com 67.43.0.3
  • •hostapp2.starchapterhost.com 209.59.143.168
  • •hostapp3.starchapterhost.com 67.225.172.119
  • •hostapp4.starchapterhost.com 209.59.144.126
  • •starchaptermail.com 69.60.117.130
  • •166.78.71.148

 If these options don't work you can always put a recurring task in your Outlook to sign up for the monthly APA meeting.  This way you can be sure you aren't missing an important topic.
