A reminder for all the membership, fellows, and alumni…
Initially, when we joined UNTCI, there were a few forms to fill out. How long ago that was would determine what format those forms were, but they all contained and collected similar information that has been consistent over the years.
Those forms are kept in our files and are referenced at least annually, usually on our anniversary date, and then throughout the year as necessary to add things such as education, change in position, address changes, etc. In all cases, it is the initial information / identification sheet that is worked from.
Part of that information that carries forward is your “preferred name” That was given as a response to the following question: “How do you want your name to appear on forms and certificates?” The administration staff uses this to prepare your paperwork, forms, letters, and certificates.
It is the responsibility of the member to update this information if the preference changes, or a title is gained and there is a wish to use that title, or professional/educational standing on our documents. This is done simply by providing the information with a request to amend our personal identification information sent to the administrative staff at: firstname.lastname@example.org at the time of our request to renew (annually) or as the change occurs so that it is done and the record is kept current.
Additionally, members are invited at any time to use the “membership” portal at www.untci.org and select “Returning or Current Minister” to find everything we need to keep current, including a portal to the “New Member Form” so even the elder member can submit their information that is current and relevant.
