Managing the Speakers on My Chapter Directory

Managing the Speakers on My Chapter Directory

Many of the national associations that use eSpeakers to power the speaker directory on the national website have arranged to provide the same service for chapters.
Chapter directories are easy to link into any chapter website to provide a list of the chapter members that local buyers and others can use for research and contacting.
This article is written for the person who manages the chapter's speaker directory (often the same person in charge of the chapter's website).

How do I add the speaker directory to my chapter website?

Adding a robust speaker directory to your chapter website typically takes just a few minutes because it is a simple HTML link.

How do I control what speakers appear on my directory?

Chapter directories are set in one of two modes:
  1. AUTO
    In auto mode, the chapter directory automatically includes speakers who have identified themselves as chapter members on their profile. A speaker who sets membership in your chapter on their profile will automatically be added to the directory, and when a speaker removes your chapter from their profile they'll be removed from the directory. These changes take up to 24 hours after the speaker's profile has been updated. Auto mode has the advantage of being simple for chapter leadership to maintain; there's nothing to do! However, it has the disadvantage of relying on the speakers themselves to provide accurate data, which doesn't always happen (especially when they are no longer a chapter member). Chapter members can use these directions to update their chapter membership.

  2. MANUAL
    In manual mode, a chapter leader adds and removes names manually from the directory. Whether or not a speaker has indicated chapter membership on their profile has no effect. To change the list of speakers on your chapter directory, follow these directions.
To switch your chapter directory between auto and manual modes, contact eSpeakers.


What username and password do I sign in with to manage my chapter directory?

Your chapter leadership should have a username and password issued by eSpeakers for the chapter. This username can be passed from one volunteer to the next as chapter leadership changes. We recommend the password be changed each time, even though the username does not.

If your chapter leadership does not know the username and password, please contact eSpeakers.
