How do I add board members and staff?
1. From the NAMI 360 homepage, click on the My Organization heading and select Board & Staff from the drop-down list.
2. A list of all current Board and Staff members for your organization will be displayed. Click the New button to the right of that list.
3. A new window titled New Affiliation will appear; select State/Affiliate as the record type and click Next.
4. Fill out the New Affiliation: State/Affiliate form with the individual's relevant information then click the Save button. See below for more information about each field.
Organization [required]: the name of your NAMI Affiliate, or, if a State-level user, the name of your state or the affiliate the individual's board or staff role is with. Start typing your NAMI organization's name in the Organization field - this will change to a drop-down list. Select your NAMI Affiliate's name from the list. NOTE: Affiliate-level users can only add board and staff for their affiliate; State-level users can add board and staff for the state office or any affiliate in their state.
Contact [required]: a link to the individual's contact record in your NAMI 360 data - they MUST have a contact record first in order to have a board or staff role with your affiliate; see How do I add a new contact? if the person does not already have a contact record in your data. Start typing the individual's name in the Contact field - this will change to a drop-down list. Select the appropriate individual from the list. NOTE: Affiliate-level users can only add contact records from within their affiliate's data; State-level users can add contact records from any affiliate in their state.
