7.0 "You've Got Mail" (at 4 AM !!)     (back to top)

Q )  PROBLEM: our General Announcement emails arrive at your email address in the middle of the night, and that triggers a "You've Got Mail" alert which is annoying.

A )  For that, we apologize. Unfortunately, it's an automatic function of our email system. It doesn't allow General Announcements to be sent to our mail list at any other time.
Why? The service we use follows a very common, very recognized Internet etiquette of only sending out General Announcements ("bulk" email broadcasts) early in the morning when the Internet is less busy. Since we have over 600 people on our email list, it's a good fit for us.

Also, since we are a chapter of the national ASHRAE organization, our Membership data is directly provided by them, including the contact email address you provided them. That leaves you two options:

1) UNSUBSCRIBE from our General Announcement email list:
Click on the "Unsubscribe from Email Notifications" link at the bottom of any of our General Announcement emails.
If you want to keep current with our events, you'll have to regularly view our calendar.

2) CHANGE YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS to one without an alarm.
This must be done in your profile. Within a day, that address will be automatically updated to our records. Pick or create an address that doesn't have an alarm associated with it, or one where you can mute the alarm during the late hours.

Note about email addresses and Triangle Website Log-In User Names:
When you first registered on our website, the system assigned you a default User Name that matched your email. This was for your convenience, and you may have later changed your User Name to anything else you wanted.
If have NOT changed your User Name from that email address, and now change your email on, your "User Name" for our website will NOT be effected. (IE: it will appear as your 'old' email address). You may wish to update it too, or change it to something else).

8.0 "NC PE Attendance Verification sheets; pre-fill your info"         (back to top)

Q )  Question: You're a PE in North Carolina, and need attendance verification to a training seminar for PDHs (Professional Development Hours). You'd like to have your information pre-filled into the form to save time.

A )  If you pre-register on-line to a meeting, (pre-paid or not), if you fill in your name, email address AND your NC PE number during the registration, that info will be pre-filled into the sign-in form during the meeting..
