Website Features: Member Compass & FAQ

The Member Compass

Learn how to utilize your Member Compass and the Member Directory to get the most of your SBCA membership benefits. These features, part of our association management software, Novi AMS, allow  you to manage your membership information conveniently and efficiently. We've also got some answers to Frequently Asked Questions towards the end of this post.  

When you log into the website, you’ll be redirected to your Member Compass. The Member Compass provides account information about you and your companyView your membership status, detailed information in the tabs on the left, plus upcoming events and open invoices information front and center. Note: if you are not registered for any upcoming events or do not have outstanding invoices, that corresponding information will not display.

Access Levels:  

All logged in users are able to see their Dashboard with their membership status, transactions billed to themselves, their event history, their order history, and their own personal profile information. Along with information about you, depending on your access level, you may see information about your company. 

If you are the Primary Contact, Billing Contact, or have been granted Management Access for your Company, you will be able to update Company information, including adding staff, such as contact information and custom fields. You will not be able to edit the company's name. Contact the SBCA for assistance if your Company Name needs to be updated.


This serves as the home page for your Member Compass. You can click this at any time to get back to this main screen. 

Pay Balance and Account History  

These tabs allow you to view & print invoices and receipts, view past transactions, and pay open invoices. This is your own personal accounting history with the SBCA. From this screen, you can see payments you’ve made, print invoices and receipts, and even click to pay any open invoices. Instead of having to call or email, you can find what you need here. Depending on your access level, you may also see additional transactions for others in your company. 

My Events 

Can't remember if you registered for the next event? Take a look at the My Events tab. This section will show any events that you've already submitted your registration. Look for the link next to the event where you can add it to your calendar. If it's a virtual event and starting within 15 minutes, you can join directly from here (the Add to Calendar link becomes Join Now!).  You'll also be able to see a list of past events on this page. 

My Orders 

If you have purchased any products from the store on our website, those orders will be shown here. 

To update your individual profile, select the Profile tab. From there, you can upload information you'd like to share with other members. This can include social media links, headshots, credentials, or other information you'd like to share. Updating your profile information here will also update what displays on the Member Directory listing.
