[Tweeters] trying to reach a WOS board member

Outlook schmoutlook. The links are standard e-mail protocol. They do require a default e-mail program to work or just right click on the link and select "copy e-mail address". Not sure how Apple deals with this but should be close to the same.

Hi Megan,

If you do not have Outlook Mail installed on your computer you will need to copy and paste the email address in your email.

For instance, go to www.wos.org >About WOS > Board Members. You will see a list of all of the board members. If you right click on a board members name you have the option to Copy Email Address. Click this option. Then open your email and paste the address in your To…. Compose your email and away you go.

The email addresses used by WOS are all Outlook dependent. This is nothing that I can control, it’s simply the way that GoDaddy (our host site) uses email. Before I installed Outlook on my computer I had this issue all the time but the work around always made it possible to send emails, it just takes an extra step.

I’ve replied to all in case there are any others out there on Tweeters that have encountered this issue.

As for the registration, I’m sure that someone from the board will be happy to help you.

Hope this helps!

I am trying to reach one of the WOS board members or officers.

I opened the WOS page in Google Chrome and tried to click on a board member's link....it doesn't work.

I also tried it in Internet Explorer and it doesn't work.

Aaargh. Not sure if this is a problem on my end or with the website.

Here is my question for someone on the WOS board or an officer....

Will WOS have someone available by phone to help anyone who might have registration problems? For a few hours at the beginning of registration? I know there was the issue a few years ago when registration didn't go as planned, but there was also another year when registration didn't work for me, for some reason. It would be helpful if someone is available who could help. I did the little "test" and it seemed to work, but it would be nice to know that there will be someone available who could help if someone (like me!) has a problem.
