How to Join the Chamber Online

With our new online process, your information is only handled once. By you. We are more than happy to assist, whether it’s with sign-in difficulties, form submission, or photo uploads. Just use the Webmaster contact form. We will continue to maintain the Directory as usual. Managing your own listing is an option–not a requirement. The process is laid out step-by-step below. Just click on the plus sign to view each section. AND THANK YOU FOR APPLYING ONLINE!

To Join - Registration, Log-In
  1. Start at “Chamber” on the menu, go to “Members“. Complete Registration Form on the left. Please do not use your business name as your username. It’s too easy for hackers to guess.
  2. Don’t try to log-in yet. Your account is awaiting activation by an administrator. You should receive an “account activated” email shortly. (Tip: “Bookmark”, or “Favorite” rubyvalleychamber.com for easy access)
  3. Log-in by clicking the little link at the top right on front page, or use the form on the Members page under “Chamber” You will land on “Manage Listing” page. Since you don’t have a listing yet, click the blue “Business Directory” link beneath “you have no listings”, then click “Submit a Listing”.
Membership Application / Directory Listing / Payment
  1. Once you’ve signed in, go to “Business Directory” if you haven’t already arrived there via #3 above..
  2. Click the “Submit A Listing” button located directly above the category list. This form doubles as your official Chamber Membership Application, and, is your business listing that will appear in the Business Directory. Simply fill-in the fields. Continue to the final screen, which is payment. If you don’t see a category that fits, use the closest one, and let the webmaster know what category you’d like to see added.
  3. Upload your logo/photos. You can upload 1 with a free basic listing (35 words), and choose 1 category. For the Enhanced Level, the limit is 6 photos, 2 categories, and 250 words; and for the PRO level, you may upload as many as 10 photos, choose 3 categories, and have 750 words. If needed, a counter tool is included here that opens in a new tab. To use it, just type your description there, copy it, click the site tab, then paste it into the listing editor (Ctrl+V) Tip: if you open the word counter now, the tab will be easy to reach from the editor. It’s easy to switch back and forth. If the system will only allow you to choose 1 category, let the webmaster know which other categories you would like. 
  4. After the photo upload screen is the map screen. Be sure the pointer accurately locates your business. If not, use your mouse to move the pointer. If you don’t want your personal residence pinpointed, just move the pointer to the town.
  5. Final screen: To pay, use the convenient online option, drop a check off at Ruby Valley National Bank, or mail your check to: GVRCCA, PO Box 134, Twin Bridges, MT 59754. Just leave the payment page if you’re paying by check. Your listing will be saved in pending status.
  6. Once submitted, your listing will be in “pending” status until it has been reviewed and your payment received.
  7. You’ll receive a confirmation notice and link when your listing is published.
Manage Your Listing
  1. Log-in with the little link at top right on the front page, or on Members page. You will be taken directly to “Manage Your Listing“, your personal page. Simply click “edit” to access your listing for changes, updates, and corrections. Be sure to go all the way through for your changes to take effect. You will see a confirmation screen at the end.
  2. No log-in is necessary to browse the site and listings.
  3. NEW – Now you can renew online simply and easily by clicking the “Pay Now” button on the Contact page. You still need to let us know of any updates or changes.
