Elected officials and city staff can choose the subscriptions most useful to them by accessing their profile on the Association's website

On the Association’s website at, click the “Member Home” link in the upper-right corner. Those without a profile will see directions on the login screen to gain access. Once they are logged into their profile, they can update their title and contact information and provide an email address. The Association never sells or shares email addresses.

In the “My Profile” section at the right, users can select “Update Now,” then select “manage subscriptions” at the right to select which emails to receive. 

All elected officials and city staff with certain designated roles automatically receive emails containing the monthly Uptown, weekly Uptown Update and From the Dome to Your Home.
