RPTE List Serves & Committee Web Pages

The RPTE committee list serves for the 2008-2009 bar year will be updated on September 3, 2008. Committee web pages (also known as Dynamic Committee Homepages or DCHs) will be populated with new committee chairs on September 3 as well, and all chairs will have editing rights to their DCH web pages.

If you are a new committee chair, please read below for the basics on editing your DCH committee web page:

You will need your ABA ID or the email address associated with your ABA ID to log in. After logging in …

1. To Change the Auto Response Email Message – When a new person joins a committee, a default message is sent from the ABA database that details the committee chairs/vice chairs and their contact info. The second half of the auto response email message is the “Welcome Message”, which can be edited on the DCH web page. After logging in, please find your committee, click “edit”, then “enrollment options” and then check the box that says “On-line Committee Enrollment Email Options”. You can then fill in the text box with your desired “Welcome Message”.

2. To Upload New Documents/Pdf’s – For most of the content blocks/modules with a header, simply click on edit and you will be able to upload documents and post them in the desired order using the numbering system shown. You can add additional content blocks/modules by clicking on “edit” and then “add/delete module” (at the top of the page).

3. To Update Programs/Meetings/Events – If you choose to show upcoming programs, meetings and events, you can either choose to display default ABA events, display section specific events (the 3 upcoming events closest to the current date will be posted) or display neither. If you choose to display neither, you can add events manually as “custom events”, but you will have to update/delete them when necessary. If you choose to display the default ABA or section specific events, the ABA database will update and delete them automatically when necessary.

For more detailed information on how to update your committee web pages, please read through the DCH document for chairs. If you need additional help, please email or call Cynthia Dickmann at dickmannc@staff.abanet.org or 312-988-5540.

To keep the RPTE website as current as possible, please update your DCH web pages
frequently. . Thank You!
