MY CONTACT INFO
MANAGING ACCOUNT CONTACT INFORMATION
Edit or Update Contact Information
My Contact Info Page
When navigating to the ‘My Contact Info’ page, by default the Contact Info tab will open. On this page, you can update your mailing address, add, edit, or delete contact records for your property. Contact records include mailing addresses, emails, and phone numbers. You may also manage your directory preferences. Please note that the directory preferences are not enabled by default and only upon special request from the Board of Directors is this information made visible. You will see the ‘Directory’ in your menu options if the Directory has been turned on for the community.
If your mailing address is the same as your property address, you will NOT need to create a mailing address. Unless a different address is specified, the system will default the property address as the mailing address. If no mailing addresses are listed in the contact list, the property address is being used as the mailing address. To create a new mailing address, from the ‘Mailing Address’ drop down select ‘(New Address)’ and enter the appropriate information. Use the ’Address Label’ to identify the Recipient name or company of an alternate addressee. If the ‘Address Label’ is not completed, the owner(s) of record will be the Addressee. Click ‘Update’ to save the record.
Select the ‘Primary Mailing Address’ by selecting the applicable address from the ‘Mailing Address’ dropdown and click ‘Update’.
NOTE: Any addresses added under the ‘Mailing Address’ drop-down will receive mail from the Association and may increase costs. Ensure only necessary addresses are listed on this page.
NOTE: By adding an address to this page, you are authorizing communications regarding Association business be delivered to the email, address, or phone number affiliated with the account. Some of this information may be private such as account balance statements, account numbers, and collection notices.
Phone and Email Contact Information
To create a new email or phone number contact record, click the ‘New Contact’ button and the bottom of the page, enter the appropriate information. On an email or phone number, use the ‘Label’ to identify the name of the party the contact information belongs to Click ‘Update’ to save the record.

Update Delivery Preferences

Selecting the ‘My Login’ tab on the page will allow you to associate a mailing and email address with your login, and also update your delivery preferences.
Create Delivery Preferences
Choose from the ‘Email’, ‘Paper, or ‘Paper and Email’ delivery options to identify how you would like to receive communications from the Association. Other property owners (co-owners or property management companies) who have a login can designate their own communication preferences.
NOTE: If an email is on file, you may still receive certain community alerts or communications from your management team even when ‘Paper’ is selected. Selecting ‘Email’ will save the Association costs by reducing postage and print spend for required communications and greatly improve delivery timeframes.
Select the ‘Mailing Address’, ‘Email’, and ‘Phone Number’ from the dropdown that will be stored with your login information. This information is populated from the ‘Contact Info’ tab. If information is missing, please add it as noted above.

Check your portal for details regarding your region’s Auto Draft policies.
If you are enrolling in Auto Draft, please note that any enrollment after the 1st of the current month will not take effect until the following month. If you are enrolling in ACH payments after the 1st of the current month, please make a one-time payment or a standard check payment for the current assessment until the ACH is effective.
With Auto Draft, the draft amount will automatically change according to your Association’s yearly budget, so you won’t have to make any changes when your Assessment balance increases or decreases.
To enroll in Auto Draft, your account balance must be paid in full.
If you have a balance due, you can submit a one-time payment to bring your balance current, and then return to this page to enroll in Auto Draft.
