Volunteers Needed to Test Online Portal

The Nevada Registry’s new online membership portal will be unveiled soon! Once available, active members of The Nevada Registry will be able to log into an Online Portal and access exciting new features from within their membership accounts such as updating employment, viewing a list of Registry-approved training on file - and more!  

In honor of our 15th Anniversary, we are looking for 15 volunteers with 15 minutes of time to spare to help us finish testing the new Online Portal before we go “live”. As a volunteer, you will have a unique behind the scenes sneak peek of the new system. You will have an opportunity to explore all of the new features and provide important feedback to the Registry from your own personal user experience. 

To be eligible to volunteer for this project, you must currently be an active member of The Nevada Registry AND have access to a computer or mobile device with an internet connection (desktop computers preferred). You also must agree to complete your exploration of the new system by Monday, May 6th and to provide detailed feedback with regard to any problems you experienced, questions you have, etc. Your constructive feedback will help ensure a positive user experience for all Registry members when engaging with the new Online Portal in the future. Please allow approximately 15 minutes of your time to fully explore all of the exciting new features. 

To volunteer, please email Shelly Nye at by Monday, April 29, 2019. The first 15 eligible members to volunteer will be provided with detailed login information on Tuesday, April 30th along with instructions for documenting and providing feedback about the new system. 

Thank you in advance for your interest in volunteering for this project! We appreciate your input!
